Customer Question
Hi, I have a new...
Hi, I have a new kitten and he is acting lethargic and is not eating much. Yesterday he was throwing up a clear to greenish fluid. It was not frothy or milky. No diareah. More than one cat in house so not sure about stool or urin. His gums are nice and pink. He received first vaccinations and was wormed about two weeks ago.

Katherine, I have not had a response from you in over 2 hours. Perhaps you have gone to bed.

I'm going to opt out of this question because I am leaving soon. Perhaps another expert can assist you with your question.

Hello,

I am sorry to hear you are worried about Smudge. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help. It appears your first expert has left the conversation.

How is Smudge today? Do you still need help with him?
