Customer Question
My cat is 18...

My cat is 18 months old. She had a litter of kittens three months ago. We still have two kittens here who occasionally still nurse. She has been throwing up her food but continues to eat and drink water. She's quiet and it's obvious she isn't feeling well. She has loose stools but she had that when she was nursing all 6 kittens and I think that's a nursing mother cat thing.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your cat eat anything unusual?

I don't think so. She was throwing up about two weeks ago and then she started the throwing up a few days ago again. I had started feeding her wet food about sux weeks ago twice a day along with dry food because she was so hungry from nursing all the time. I cut back on the wet food but she's still throwing up whatever she eats.

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. The Expert will know what to do. What is the cat's name?

Tootsie

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Tootsie?

Nothing I can think of.

Hi.

Dr. Paul Brazzell here.

Can you confirm then how long she has been vomiting for and how often she has been vomiting.

What is the brand of cat food that you are feeding?

And does she still have diarrhea?

Paul
