I fed my car vanilla yogurt and I guess it may have

Customer Question
I fed my car...

I fed my car vanilla yogurt and I guess it may have artificial sweetners. He is now listless. What have I done. Have I just killed my cat??

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help your cat. What is the cat's name and age?

Shadow 7 years and just had surgery for stomach blockage a week ago and was doing just fine.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the cat's name?

Shadow

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Shadow?

Just his surgery that I just mentioned. I will advise her about this tomorrow, but was wondering if there is anything I should be doing now?

I am sorry you are concerned about Shadow. I would not expect vanilla yogurt to make him sick. Can you tell me the name of the yogurt, so I can look up the ingredients? Or can you tell me what the sweetener is, on the label?

It is a Walmart brand and it just says "added sugars."
Cat Veterinarian: Rebecca, Cat Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

I am sorry but I can't make calls for the website; that offer does not come from me.

"added sugars" would not be artificial sweeteners.

Then don't call me or charge me. Just type me and let me know what you think and if I should give him something of just wait it out until he feels better.
Cat Veterinarian: Rebecca, Cat Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

I can answer any questions you have here. I do not charge you; I just answer questions. Billing is done by the website.

Is he eating, and drinking? Any vomiting? If he is just lethargic, monitoring should be enough for now.

If you lift his lip to check his gums, are they pink or pale?
