Hi this is Dr. Sara. How long has Africa been doing this? What type of food do you have her on. Is she an indoor only cat?

She is on soup of the soul Salomon indoor and hairball. Over night and early this morning. She is indoor only.

Alright, I would recommend trying some Pepcid for today and maybe tomorrow. If the vomiting persists I would recommend a vet visit. Would you like to try this?

I have zantac 150, how much can I give?

So, Zantac won't work because the mg is too high. You can use Pepcid AC 10mg and give her 1/2 tablet once daily.

I apologize for the delayed response, I was not feeling well last night.
