Chloe is sick

Lafayette, NJ(Zone 6a)

I hope someone can shed some light on what is wrong with Chloe. She hasn't been eating like she usually eats and seems lethargic. Saturday morning she was limping - left leg. So I took her to the vet. Nothing noted with the exam, blood and urine are normal. They gave her fluids and an appetite stimulant.

We came home and she wolfed her food down. But she still seems off.

She has been throwing up - mostly hairballs. Her purr has become deeper. And she has an infrequent cough. She is not liking it when I pick her up. When I give her a treat - she seems to have trouble chewing it. The vet thought her teeth were okay.

Chloe is about 8 years old, strictly indoor, spayed and usually a delightful cat.

Any help would be appreciated.

Don't you hate it when you know something is wrong, but they can't figure it out? Just keep notes of her "off" behavior. Hopefully something will become clear.

Have you thought of getting a second opinion from another vet??

No I hadn't. But I really don't have any opinion from the first vet. She wouldn't know anything more without more tests.

Thank you for all of your good thoughts. I had to put Chloe down today. The vet found a mass on her lung.

Oh, I am so sorry about Chloe. We lost 2 babies last year, and it has been just terrible. I know how much you are hurting, and please know my thoughts are with you!
