Asking for a friend. Has anyone else come across a cause for an older kitten repeatedly shivering and having a high fever after he's eaten? He's perfectly ok otherwise, running around like mad and playing like he should be, but after he eats he sits in a ball and shivers. My friend is working with her vets to try and figure this out but they don't know what's going on. Kitten's background is that he was rescued without his mum and bottle fed from before a week old. He has had numerous health problems because of this but the shivering after eating is a new one with no ideas why.
My friend writes: he's about four/five months old, he's had full vaccinations. the idiopathic high temps with accompanying shivering and throwing up started at about 5-6 weeks old, he's been treated with clavulox (respiratory antibiotic), Flagyl (gut antibiotic) and a baycox specific for coccidia. went to adopters fully healthy, and then it started up again.
