Customer Question

My cat has been vomiting and all the vets in my area are closed for the day and I wanted to know if I can give him Phenergan.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your cat eat anything unusual?
Customer: Not that I'm aware of. He doesn't want to eat at this time and I have been giving him fluids with a syringe today.
JA: What is the cat's name and age?
Customer: Zeke age 11
JA: Is there anything else important you think the veterinarian should know about Zeke?
Customer: He was recently diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome and has been having diarrhea for the past 2 months period but for the past two weeks he's been having relatively normal stools. Vomiting started spontaneously yesterday morning

Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.

I'm sorry for this concern about Zeke. I do have a few additional questions to ask about him first if you don't mind:

1. Approximately how much does Zeke weigh?

2. Has he been urinating?

3. Is he at all painful when you press on his abdomen in between his legs?

4. Is he lethargic?

Thanks, Deb
