Customer Question

She was sick this morning, small amount, since then she has been drinking, eating a small amount of dry foods, but not her wet food, she has passed graces but it isn't as soft as usual, and she seems more lethargic, not sure if this is a reaction to the fact I've just got a new kitten or she's sickening for something
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the kitten. What is the kitten's name?
Customer: Molly she is 5
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Molly?
Customer: No

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

What did the vomit look like?

Has she been drinking more then usual? Can she keep water down?

Are her gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

If you press on her belly, does she have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?

Could she have eaten something she should not have (ie bones, toys, rocks, plants, chemicals, etc)?
