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

Is he up to date on worming?

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

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

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

It is not a cat it is my baby

Hello again,

Thank you for clarifying, as you did post to the cat vet category. In any case, I'll send your question over to the medics to help you.

Take care,

Dr. B.

Hello, Sorry about this symptom. If it was just once and baby feels OK, you need not worry - it could be something in food.

Please recall what she had 8-12 hours prior to this event. If this recurs while off food, please take a sample to lab and get a routine, microscopy and occult blood report.

Good luck to him.
