Customer Question

My cat Pooky is hiding and has been sneezing. He always has had a problem with throwing up his food from time o time,but this time I'm a little scared. Can you help me. I am old and don't know what to do.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did Pooky eat anything unusual?
Customer: Not that I know of . He has not wanted to go outside for a while. He is beside the and when he goes out he doesn't stay long at all. I also haven't given him his flea treatment yet
JA: OK. The Veterinarian will know what to do. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Pooky?
Customer: He is out Friday m under the bed, but won't let you near him. I did get him to drink some tuna water but something interested in drinking regular water

I will help you with Pooky. I am sorry he is not feeling well.

Give him one quarter of a ten mg pepcid a/c (famotidine). I usually add it to a tablespoon of baby food chicken with no onion or garlic Or canned cat food.Every 12 hours.

Remove all dry food and any wet with chunks, pieces or shreds.

Feed only smooth pate canned food or baby food.

If he gets dehydrated give him tuna water drained from the can.

Please let me know how he is doing .
