My cat is now at the hospital with my wife as he was

Customer Question

Hello,
My cat is now at the hospital with my wife as he was drooling, vomiting, hiding himself and looking like he was dying. We're trying to figure out if he did not get food poisoned from some chicken that she bought. He ate it twice apparently and the last time started vomiting again after 8-12 hours. My wife didn't suspect the chicken food the first time and took him to the vet but they weren't able to diagnose him and he got better the next morning. They gave him a pill against vomiting, but in the evening my wife gave him that chicken again and this moring he was in critical situation, vomitting, drooling and looking like he was dying.
Please advise

Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 1 month ago.

1) was this boiled chicken? Chicken that the family had also eaten?
2) Was this a chicken cat food? What does he normally eat?
3) Were any other cats given this chicken? Are they symptomatic?
