Customer Question

She has been throwing up 3 days, she drinks water, but lays around, I can't afford a vet for her
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the cat?
Customer: no, she is normally full of life, what I can do for her
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

I am sorry your fur baby is not feeling well.

Remove ALL DRY food.

Give her one quarter of a ten mg pepcid a/c (famotidine) in a tablespoon of baby food chicken with no onion or garlic.

Wait 30 minutes, then offer her more food from the jar.

To keep her hydrated drain the water from a can of people tuna into a bowl. Let her lap it up.

Please let me know how she is doing.
