- I talked with Purcy's vet last night and he thinks that the upper
respiratory infection and the high fever caused him to lose weight.
I brought Purcy in to have a tech check his temp and it was normal.
He still isn't eating much and has been lethargic, but his vet thinks
that he should get better soon.
Is it possible that the Clavamox that he's been on may have caused
him to not want to eat anything? I am trying so hard to get him to
eat and all he will do is eat a bite or two. Please help!!!

time she was put on Clavamox (for a UTI), she completely stopped
eating and became very lethargic. When it became clear that she
wasn't going to snap out of it, I took her back to the vet and he
switched her to baytril. The change in her was astounding,
and "clavamox-sensitive" was put into her file and she was never
given Clavamox again. My vet said that some cats just don't
tolerate Clavamox well.
You might want to talk to your vet about changing the antibiotic.
