Since fluids are so important to keep a cat from dehydrating and keeping
organs functioning, an option might be about 100-150 mL of subcutaneous
fluids given daily or every second day - it's easy to learn how to do
yourself and saves a lot of lives in the long run!  Could your vet give
Murphy an injection of Vitamin C, B12 etc - could be a great booster.

Subject: [Felvtalk] Murphy-still not eating or drinking

He is still refusing to eat or drink on his own. I am using a little syringe
give him water and plain Pedialyte and also some watered down AD food from
vet. While I was at work today, Glenn was able to carry him to the litter
and he did pee in it (Murphy-LOL), so the plumbing is still functioning. He 
spends most of his time sleeping, but for a short while tonight he actually 
walked into the kitchen and sat down, I was able to give him his meds and
food and water with the syringe. He is still very pale and way too quiet. I
him a Procrit shot last night with a prayer that he will bounce back, but I 
don't know. Hopefully he will want to eat tomorrow. In July, he was like
for 2 days, then began feeling better fairly quickly except for the sneezing
drippy nose. Got my fingers crossed and saying little purrayers all day
