Customer Question

Hi, I have noticed that lately my kitten has been throwing up frequently. It's mostly runny. She drinks plenty of water. Her personality has changed as well. She went from being very playful to secluding herself. Could that be related? Also she's been known to play with bugs outside and eat them as well. Could the bugs be making her throw up?

Hello, I am afraid that the expert you have requested is not currently available. Still I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today. How long has she had these signs?Is she keeping any food down? The water she has been drinking?Are her gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?If you press on her belly, does she have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?Could she have eaten anything else she should not have (ie bones, toys, rocks, plants, chemicals, etc)?What kind of bugs could she be eating? Anything toxic?Has she had any diarrhea?
