Q Marquessa asks:

Please can you tell me if it's okay for me to give my cat Dioralyte, the lost water and body salts replacement? He is very dehydrated and on the box it says in the case of kidney failure to seek advice before using. It is most urgent! He is not eating and is not well at all. Thank you so much.

Q Our vet says: It sounds as if your cat needs veterinary attention for this. Home treatment may be inappropriate. If your cat is very dehydrated he may need intravenous fluids. Speak your local vet who will be able to examine your cat and suggest the most appropriate course of action. Sorry I can't help further but there are limitations to what can be done over the internet since I am unable to examine the animals. A site such as this is most useful to tell people if they really need to seek a vet's help and not to offer specific advice about specific cases. In your situation it certainly sounds serious enough to advise you to get your cat to the vet as soon as you can.
