Customer Question

Uh, hi. He's clearly eaten something he ought not have (appeared to be a bit of plastic) and thrown up. The first vomit had the tell tale bit of plastic. Since then he has thrown up 3 times in the course of about 6 hours. 2 of them were mostly liquid, the third had undigested food
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the cat will be able to digest that. What is the cat's name and age?
Customer: Puff, 3
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about puff?
Customer: Hmm, he's low energy today, which is making me worried. He's usually a high energy boy, with the bad habit of eating things like foam that he finds.

Have you tried any soft food? Maybe something with a little added fiber?
