kitten stopped eating

by Nathan Roberts

My kitten is about 7 weeks old and she just stopped eating. She will drink milk and water. She seems to be sneezing a little much too. What's wrong with her

Dear Nathan,

A kitten that young can get very, very ill and even die if she does not eat. You must get her to a veterinarian right away. There are numerous possible causes that the vet can better define by examining her and getting a thorough history from you. The fact that she is sneezing can indicate it is a kitty version of a "cold", but in kittens and even older cats, "colds" can be deadly if not treated right away.

Best of luck,
Dr. Neely
