Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

Any idea what he may have eaten?

Any retching, gagging, lip licking, drooling, or vomiting? If you meant he is vomiting, what does the vomit look like?

Can he keep any water down?

Are his gums pink or white/pale? Moist or sticky?

Can he pass urine?

If you press on his belly, any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

He moans is you rub his belly, won't drink water, won't eat, he barely pees, pink gums
Cat Veterinarian: Dr. B., Cat Veterinarian replied 2 months ago

Hello again,

Just for clarity, he is passing some urine? Is he straining to do so?

Forget this, I don't want to be charged for this, too stressed
Cat Veterinarian: Dr. B., Cat Veterinarian replied 2 months ago

No worries, I will pass you back to customer service as you may need to consider a local ER vet given his signs.

Take care,

Dr.B.
