My cat is 8 years old. She was diagnosed with a descending duodenal large cell malignant lymphoma that is creating an intestinal blockage. She has lost a lot of weight and is on 200ml daily subcutaneous fluid and baytril injections for an infection; also she was given a depo medrol shot for the lymphoma. She has been on this for 2 weeks now.
She looks interested in food but she will not eat.
She pees 2-4 times per day and her fever from the infection seems to have broken. She is pretty alert but she seems to be straining to defecate. She passed a very small dry stool but she seems to be constipated.
We think that if her bowels are emptied that she will be less nauseous and will start to eat and gain some weight and strength back. We think the dry stool was caused by the blockage when she started to not drink and no fluid was passing her blockage and her stomach was full of liquid that she kept vomiting. She was vomiting a lot of fluid for about a week after we started the subcutaneous fluid.
Should we take her into the vet to see if she can give her an enema or stool softener?
