Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
I am sorry your boy is eating your plants.
Baby's Breath is considered toxic due to the fact that it causes vomiting and diarrhea.
Roses are not toxic but can cause some diarrhea.
It is very common to see cats foam at the mouth when they eat something they should not and when they are nauseous.
I would rinse his mouth look for any pieces of plant material left in the mouth. Pepcid AC may help calm the stomach.
I would keep an eye on him, if the vomiting does not reside, he becomes overly lethargic, stops eating or has any additional problems I would suggest having him seen by your vet
I hope all goes well, please reply back if you have additional questions or concerns
According to the ASPCA animal poison control the roses are not toxic even the stem They can like any plant cause digestive upset.
Here is more from them on roses
If the anti vomiting meds were previously prescribed for this cat they may help however the Pepcid AC will help prevent acid build up and may be more effective.
If there were thorns on the stem this can pose a risk of perforation in the digestive tract, larg pieces of stem can also cause a problem.
Yes if you have to but it is more effective if you let the stomach break down the pill.
Make sure you get the original pepcid and not extra strength or pepcid complete
It will settle the stomach and help with the vomiting.
We do not normally use this medication in cats for diarrhea or any other reasons due to the risk of adverse reaction, so I can not advice on the use of this.If he has had this in the past then it should not hurt

I personally would try adding some rice to the food, you can also add 1 teaspoon of metamucil to the food or 1 tablespoon of canned pumpkin. Increasing the fiber will help firm the stool.
I am so glad Joey is feeling better, the Pepcid normally works very well.
I have no idea how any of the billing works, I believe if you are on a subscription then you should not be charged when pressing accept. Since I do not know how this works for sure I will send a request to customer service for them to look at it for you.
I am sorry for any inconvenience. If you do not hear back from them soon please let me know so I can try to help.
You did not mess anything up I did email them already as well, I am sure they will get it taken care of for you.
I am on everyday if you ever need help again feel free to ask for me by putting my name in your question line.
It means you accept my answer but you only need to press it once. Its only after you press accept that the expert gets paid.
This is an easy fix do not worry.
Best wishes and give Joey a good pet for me
Knowing I am able to help is what keeps me going. I am not a vet but I have been a vet tech for 23 years.
You have a great night to and tell Joey I am glad he is feeling better and no more eating moms flowers.
This can take up to 24 hours for his stomach to calm down. The pepcid will help try to offer some of the bland diet or some baby food in about 30 minutes.
Let me know how he is doing as the day progresses. If he is not better by tomorrow he may have to be seen by the vet to be sure he did not swallow a large piece of the stem that is causing problems.
