Hello,
I am so sorry Regi is not feeling well.
Can you please tell me what he ate just prior to vomiting?
Has he been having normal bowel movements?
Is he an indoor kitty?
After your reply please give me a few minutes to type detailed answer.
Thanks,
Terri

Hello,
I was hoping to hear right back from you so we could talk about Regi.
If he has ingested a toxic substance like antifreeze, he should be seen by a vet ASAP.
If he just has an upset tummy, go out and get these items:
A jar of baby food chicken or turkey (no onion or garlic)
A can of people tuna in water
Pepcid A/C (famootidine)

Add one quarter of a ten mg pill to a tablespoon of baby food.
After he takes it wait 20 to 40 minutes and offer the rest of the jar.
If he keeps that down, drain the water from the tuna into a bowl and see if he will lap it up for hydration. If he does, offer the tuna.
If he throws it up feed only baby food for the next 48 hours.
Please let me know how he is doing. Just press reply and I will be here for you.
Please be so kind as to rate my answer positively as that is the only way I receive credit for my assistance. Thank you very much!
