(Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.

OK, she does need to go to an emergency room. Do not give hydrogen peroxide. We need x-rays to evaluated her lungs, she may require oxygen support, fluid therapy, electrolyte regulation, and temperature regulation. I highly recommend keeping her hospitalized for at least one night. She may require more if she is seriously affected. Please let me know if you have further questions. I am happy to continue until I provide the service that you seek.

Okay even if the cat was only in there for a minute or two. It is a kitten maybe 2 to 3 months old
Expert:  brisadog replied 2 years ago.
Yes 1-2 minutes is absolutely enough for her to aspirate a significant amount of soapy water. Hopefully it won't be serious, but I do not think we can assume that.
