I have a cat named taker for about four days now he seems to

Hello I have a cat named taker for about four days now he seems to be acting like he has my cold which is sort of weird because I was told that cat can't catch your cold so basically what he is doing and he's only six years old so he's still young is after he eat hard food he will gag and it's not really clear on Mike's bit with parts of the hard food in it but just two days ago if he even tried to eat hard food he would just gag it all up and not even swallow I mean not swallow or he wouldn't even chew his food he would just swallow it whole and then he Dagget up so I'm not sure if he has a sore throat his pink tongue is pink his tongue is pink I can't check his gums he won't let me but I did check his his tongue him he does sound like he's having a hard time breathing as wellJA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if taker will be able to digest that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about taker?Customer: His name is ***** ***** he is overweight he's a tabby I'm bangle which is a large breed of cat arm he's never been sick before he's never had this before the hacking is what scares me because it's after he eats I am he's not meowing at all and he's a big-time talker he's not meowing when I say tigger want a treat and he's right there and he's just talking his head off he doesn't follow me room to room like he normally does and we did get a brand-new kitten but this is not the typical I am jealous type of attitude because Tigger is very mellow time doesn't have that jealousy personality

My cat had an enema at the vet today around 7 am. He had

My cat had an enema at the vet today around 7 am. He had quite abit of stool removed. After, he came home he threw up twice. Called the vet who said not to give him food or water for a couple of hours. I removed food but not water and he's been eating all day. He is still super lathargic and doesn't want to eat. Just threw up a bit of stomach acid. Does he need to return to the vet or is this normal? He is 17 and relatively healthy for an old man. Just had his senior pet exam this year and all seemed fine with blood work, etc.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 your cat?Customer: He accepts pets and wants to be around people. He is not crying, but not purring like usual either.

My two year old has had a cold for about a week. The fever

Hello!My two year old has had a cold for about a week. The fever has been on and off, up to 101.6, for 5 days. We were at the doctor already (the appt. was already scheduled), and the doctor said it was probably a cold. But that was 4 days ago with only slight improvement. She is playing and happy, but snotty and not 100%.Can I just ride this out or should we head back tot he doctor? I'm mostly concerned because she hasn't kicked the fever yet. This is also the third cold she's had in 3 months.
