He's constantly crying and occasionally vomiting

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the cat eat anything unusual?

Not that I know of. No access to strange foods either

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

Figaro and 8-10 I believe

Veterinarian's Assistant: How old is Figaro?

8-10

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

He's prone to uti and has been medicated for it before but this is different

I am sorry to hear Figaro is vomiting and crying. How long has he been doing this?

Cat Veterinarian: Rebecca, Cat Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Is he still eating? Is he keeping down most of what he eats?

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

Cats will cry and make strange sounds when they are nauseous and trying to vomit. Nausea medication may help. You can give a cat 2.5 mg of famotidine (Pepcid AC) twice daily.
