my cat is 17 1/2 years old and over the last year she has gotten very thin from the middle back/you can feel her bones. Is this normal? Is she in pain? Should I be giving her some type of medicine?
She should be seen for this by the vet. The weight loss and or muscle wasting may be related to age but any older cat should be seen by a vet for routine blood work and exams. Your vet may be able to give your pet meds to help maintain body mass etc. Good luck, vetcare
