    I am not a vet and I am sorry for posting here but could someone please help explain it for me. Was suggested i should post in this forum.

    Hello,
    I have not long got back from the vets where my Beauty died in my arms. I am from the UK. She would of been 17 in July.

    I took her to the vets last Sunday because for a few days she had runny eyes..he thought then it might be something else but i said i think she had a temperature as he said no infection but when he tested her temperature it was high 105 so he prescribed her Norocarp which i never heard of and also gave her an injection of something yellow looking i suppose antibiotic or the same medication.

    She still was off her food but then on the monday afternoon she seem to pick up and eating more now has her temperature must have dropped.
    I took her back Tuesday has he wanted to check her and decided to be safe he would also give her a old cat profile blood works.

    Yesterday Thursday he phoned and said she needed to come up and be on a drip right away because her kidney levels were high which i was told today that they were creatine level then was 28 but i am not sure what that means myself.

    Now today phoned to see how she was doing before i went to see her and she was doing ok this morning eating little bits which we explained that was just her way has she was a little overweight but she always ate in little amounts and is a very timid cat and he said once they have the toxins from her system from the drip he will get her on medication then home.
    They must of decided she needed more food and so they force fed her with a syringe and she went down bank they said after that :( They did not phone i phoned them to say i will be coming up to see her when they then said she was on oxygen and they gave her an injection of something but i am not sure what that is.

    Also told me thet revived her that afternoon which never told me earler after they force fed her food.

    They never told me on the phone but when i got there , explained that they did another blood test after her taking turn for worse and her kidney creatine level was now 46. I asked so what can be done as he brought her into me on oxygen and my little Beauty could not even lift her head..when i tried it just started to shake and she had mask on till the end. They said was only one way and was to put he to sleep :( Yet yesterday she ran down the stairs for me to take her the vets..sometimes it makes me think you do wrong to take them has they seem to end up worse.

    I held her in my arms for an hour before he put her to sleep. I can't belive my Beauty is gone forever now all those years a huge chunk of me has died with her.

    How can her Kidney go to such high level when she was not like it and how come they did a test to show new level yet i had to wait a few days for the first test she had, they had to send blood away.

    Was the force feeding her that did it or the drugs. I want to ask please has anyone any idea what that drug is she was given Sunday (Norocarp). Because on the Tuesday she went for to see her and for the old cat profile after coming back he said to stop that medication until he got blood work back.

    I just did a little research has i just can't think she has gone so quickly.
    Norcarp i have been told should never be given to Cats yet he injected it with her Sunday and gave me tablets to give her twice a day 50mg.
    It looks like that is what finished her from what i read as even in dogs has to be watched :(

    She was fine just went up for runny eyes last Sunday then injected her with that and the tablets for her at home. Tuesday i took her up as he said he wanted to check her that day. Then decided to do a old cat profile Tuesday then rang me after Tuesday evening to say stop the Norcarp till he gets the results back.

    Do you think he knew what he did and that medicine did her Kidneys in and shut down her whole system as when i saw her a few hours ago now she was in fits and heart so shallow then up a bit she was in and out of it the poor little girl i had so long yet seems was killed by that medicine.
    I would feel better if anyone can try to find for me or tell me that (Norocarp) 50mg twice a day and the injection he gave her of it. The other name for (Norocarp) is (Rymadil) should or should not be ever prescribed for a cat age 16 who seemed fine except for her runny eyes last Sunday.

    I am lost without you Beauty.

    Thanks for listening

    I am sorry for your loss. It is against SDN's terms of service for any of us to speculate.

    I'm very sorry for the loss of your kitty.

    The attending veterinarian is the best person to address your questions as he or she is the only one with all of the clinical and laboratory details necessary to make a diagnosis. In some cases, a necropsy (autopsy) is the best way to identify the cause(s) of death.
