Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I am not set up to do phone calls but would be happy to answer any questions you do have online. In order to give an informative and concise answer, it may take a few minutes before I respond back to you, so don't be alarmed if you don't hear back immediately if you have responded back to me within 10 minutes of my response. I do have a couple more questions, though, to see if I can better assess your situation.
How often has he vomited?
Does he seem lethargic or weak?
Any difficulty breathing?
What color are his gums?
If you press into his abdomen from both sides, is he painful or uncomfortable?
Did he get his full dose of insulin this evening?
Thanks for the information. The pale gums do concern me. I would recommend getting him evaluated by the emergency vet tonight. It could be that he has low blood sugar from getting insulin without eating much and vomiting it back up. I would want to rule out anemia and other types of shock as well. The pale gums are concerning enough to get him to the vet to get some lab work ran and correct any situation that may be occurring immediately. With diabetics, you can never be too careful. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
