Q. Hi my cat has recently been acting strange and I think he injested car grease or oil. I bathed him and now he is very weak and sweating. I'm scared be

A. Grease and oil can cause a wide range of side effects and can be very irritant to the gastrointestinal tract and internal organs. I strongly recommend you arrange an emergency appointment for treatment which may include intravenous fluids and nutrition as well as other supportive treatments based on a full physical exam
