I paid then the scene went blank. Do I need to do this

Customer Question

Hi. I paid then the scene went blank. Do I need to do this again?
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the cat?
Customer: This is still about William.
JA: Where does the cat seem to hurt?
Customer: Do you have the info before that I typed in?!
JA: Can you see anything that looks wrong or different?
Customer: No.
JA: OK. Nothing visually obvious. Is the cat eating normally?
Customer: He has not eaten breakfast.

Customer: William. He is one
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about William?

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

Now there is no record of your previous question, if you would like to give me a history on William that would be helpful.

Otherwise, since you noted that he didn't eat breakfast, has he had any retching, gagging, lip licking, drooling, or vomiting?

Can he keep any water down?

Are his gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?

If you press on his belly, does he have any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Could he have eaten anything he should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?

William has been with me since April. He was semi-feral. He has been slowly coming out of his shell. He always asks for breakfast but this morning he did not. I usually wake with him on my bed. This morning I had to go searching for him. He is lethargic now sitting on a chair. He has had very loose stool this weekend but that has happened before and it cleared up. I will go check him again now for the items above. As of yesterday he was eating and drinking. He threw up last night twice.

Thank you,

Just further to those parameters you are checking, any issues with him passing urine (ie straining but not doing so)?
