Hi I was just googling this morning bc my cat Tango is having issues w balance & acting "off", and I came across this convo. I'm curious as to what the outcome was w your cat? I hope he/she is still with you and well. It is just the worst feeling when you know something is wrong but don't know what it is. Tango seems to have his spunk, just is wobbly & having problems when trying to jump. Also lethargic. I'm hoping this is an inner ear issue. I'm still waiting for vet to open; it's 8:20 am. When I called emergency vet they said they close at 8.

I'm not the OP, & didn't read through this thread, but the first thing your vet will probably check is the ears. I had a similar situation with one of my cats last year, and it turned out to be an ear infection. Antibiotics cleared it up. Hope Tango's problem isn't more serious than that. Good luck.

I hope you took him to your vet to diagnose the problem. If he has an infection (inner ear, etc.), it is important to give him the correct antibiotic in the correct dosage. I hope Baby gets better, but please get him checked out.

I was at the vet for about 6 hours last night with my cat Sam. He's been falling over poor guy. They wanted to do all these tests in stuff for like $2000. I told him to clean his ears out. They found that his left ear was growing a bunch of tissue. However she said that my cat should be falling on the left side and not on the right side. She gave him nauseous medicine and hydrated him with stuff in the back of his Nape.
I took him home and he slept on my balcony all night. This was the first. He has a little cat scratcher House outside and he slept in that.
I hope to get him into his regular vet tomorrow and see what She has to say. I'm so sad for my Sammy.

If his balance is bad aren't you afraid he'll fall off the balcony?

Why are you leaving him outside on a balcony when he has bad balance? I would be afraid he'd fall off. Also if he's not feeling well he would probably be more comfortable inside in a temperature controlled environment. Also usually when my pets are sick they want to be close to me. It seems to give them comfort.

Hope your kitty feels better.

Help please
My semi feral has been suffering from loss of balance, practically falling over when she tries to walk.
Vet gave her a shot of Covenia and all blood work was fine, no toxic, blood pressure was fine, she did not have a stoke.
It has been almost 2 weeks but I don’t see much improvement, she is eating well, drinking and using literbox..
What else can I do??

You should read the posts - the OP's cat was diagnosed with a vestibular problem.

Best wishes!
