Hello,
I'm Dr. Jo and I'm a licensed veterinarian with more than twenty years of experience. I'm here to help with your question about your kitten vomiting.
I'm so sorry you're having this problem, but glad you're looking for the information you need. You may join the conversation at any time by typing in what you want to say then clicking REPLY or SEND. Then we can chat back and forth until you're satisfied with the information I've provided. I'll do my best to earn your good rating, because that's the only way I receive any compensation for helping you.
In the meantime, in order to help me help you better, I'll need some more information. To start with, can you please tell me:

  • Was she showing any signs of illness before today?
  • How likely is it she may have swallowed a bit of toy or a string?
  • How long have you had her?
  • Is she up to date on her vaccinations?

I'll be standing by and awaiting your reply. Thank you.
