Customer Question
I took my 2...

I took my 2 1/2 year old cat to the vet on Friday for throwing up. They did X-rays and examined her and said nothing was wrong but that she had an empty stomach. I got her home fed her some wet food to see if she would eat. She ate it but threw back up. She has been getting sick four days now. Again the vet told me the couldn’t find anything wrong and that she just had and empty stomach. They also told me if she was still getting sick bring her.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the cat will be able to digest that. What is the cat's name?

Luna

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

No she’s just not keeping food down and she has an empty belly from the X-rays from Friday
