Customer Question
Cat threw up yesterday...

Cat threw up yesterday a few times, has been lethargic and not eating or drinking for about 36 hours. Noticed his eyes seems to roll up into corners. He just lays in one spot, we try to give him water and milk but he won't drink

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the cat?

He is an outdoor cat, but has not been in a fight has no observable injuries, his body seems stiff. We can't afford expensive medical testing
