Customer Question

My cat mat have gotten into the ant poison Terro. He has been vomiting for 2 days off and on, looks like bile. But his demeanor is still happy, purring, meowing, and rubbing up against me? Should I wait another day or so????

I am sorry to hear you are worried about your cat. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
The active ingredient in Terro ant bait is borax, which does not normally sicken cats. I suspect something else is causing him to vomit.
It is good he is happy and purring. Is he eating and drinking, or has he stopped eating since the vomiting started?
