Vomiting, sounds like labored breathing, lethargic cat

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the cat?

I don't think so

Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Have there been any changes to the diet? New food? New treats? Bones? Has any human food been fed? Torn up toys? Stressful changes to the environment?

Can you share video of what you're seeing with the labored breathing?

If her breathing rate is over 50 breaths per minute, I would urge you to take her directly to your vet or local ER as this may indicate that she is in critical condition.
