Ruffy is still refusing food. Gave 3ml liquid Pepsid and 1/4

Customer Question

Ruffy is still refusing food. Gave 3ml liquid Pepsid and 1/4 Tramadol at 5:30 AM. It is 4:00 PM now. He is very still and peaceful. I am trying to determine if I should go to Animal Emergency Center tonight, or wait for his vet tomorrow 8:00 AM. He vomited clear/yellow fluid overnight, and continues to drink water every hour.

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner and I regret that my state board of veterinary examiners doesn't allow my speaking with customers by phone in this venue. Please stay in this conversation if you wish. I'm unable to access your conversation with nekovet. Please fill me in. I can also tell you how to assess the urgency of having Ruffy attended to.
