Customer Question

my 9yo indoor cat, male, neutered has been regurgitating a lot more than usual. this morning he threw up last night's food and then clear. He is whining a lot. We have a vet appt for tomorrow but I'm wondering if he's really ill. My husband says litterbox is consistent with 2 cats using it (we have a 2nd cat, his littermate, who seems fine).

Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about Buster. Can you give me a little more information so I can better answer your question. How long has the regurgitation been going on for? How are his bowel movements? Has he lost any weight? Is he drinking more than usual? How is his energy level? Are his gums nice and pink (vs. pale)? Have you changed his food or flavor of food in the past months?
