I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. It's best to stop the amoxicillin which is often the cause of vomiting in cats. Let his vet know what you've done and his vet may perform a urinalysis to see if an antibiotic still needs to be on board or not. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
