Hello,

If you can get some Pepcid-AC, or the generic form, it might help with the nausea. 1/4 of a 10 mg tablet is the dose for a cat. If the nausea is caused by an abundance of acid in Chloe's stomach, Pepcid should make her more comfortable.

If she isn't eating, try some strained meat baby food, with no onion added. Anything you can get her to eat is ok at this point. I wouldn't worry about the amount of protein, it is believed that it is the quality of the protein eaten and not the quantity. Baby food would be a pretty high quality protein.

Try gently lifting up your cat's skin in the shoulder area. If the skin doesn't snap back, she is dehydrated and most likely does have kidney failure. Diabetes also causes serious dehydration. Excessive drinking is also a sign of both diseases.

I'm sorry for all you are going through with Chloe. There is unfortunately very little you can do for her on your own. It's too bad your vet hasn't been helpful.

Take care,
PHKitkat
