My cat is about 10 months old and just yesterday got lethargic and started throwing up nothing but liquid. We are snowed in. What can I do

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 the Veterinarian should be aware of about your cat?

Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand your cat is lethargic and vomiting a fluid. I am sorry to hear about what is happening. Does your cat have a history of vomiting sporadically, or is this the first time it has happened? I can give you some ideas about what to give to help reduce nausea. Do you have Pepcid or Zantac available?

Zantac
Cat Veterinarian: Scott Perry, Cat Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Thank you. The Pepcid dose for a 10 lb cat is 2.5 mg (i.e. 1/4 tablet) every 12 hours. The dose for Zantac is 10 mg, although this is more challenging to achieve because it requires to get at least 1/8 of a tablet. You can give Zantac every 12 hours as well.
