Caius has been acting sickly lately. I thought it a slump that would pass but now I'm getting worried.

She has no energy, no enthusiasm, and is reluctant to eat even treats. She seems thin and lifeless when I hold her. She's moving super slow.

No injuries, no lumps or bumps. Should I wait for symptoms or run to the vet?

Being thin on top of the other symptoms would worry me. I hope it's just an easily remedied with some antibiotics. Unfortunately those symptoms cover so many things, without proper testing there is not really a way to diagnose.

On a side note-Buttercup had really slowed down and then started to lose some weight recently. No sooner noticed the weight loss and she got a huge abscess on her face. Once that was taken care of and a round of antibiotics she was right back to her old self. Hopefully Caius will have something equally easy to remedy.
