My cat has been throwing up for a full day n is acting lethargic

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 your cat?

How old is your cat?

Ask Your Own Cat Veterinary Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
9yrs old a male inside n outside cat, so he may have eaten something outside

Okay, that's good information to have. Is he interested in food right now?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
no or drinking, he did however go to the kittie litter box for pea several hrs ago, he has no evidence of a fight with another animal that I can tell and he did get up to walk by me to have me pet him

Okay, did you watch him urinate? Was there any straining?

Ask Your Own Cat Veterinary Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I did not get to see him urinate because it was when we were in bed, I think it was before 8:00 this morning n it is now 2:00, I also tried to check if he has a fever n I don't think he does nor does he seem to be in any pain that I would be able to know!!

How many times has he vomited?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
the first time was solid then after that liquid, any where from 6 to 8 times, the solid was only once! It looks like he dry heaves for the liquid, this has been within a day n a half he has not done it now for about 2hrs

Ok, I'm glad he has gone for a couple of hours without vomiting. I would not offer him anything to eat until this evening. If he throws that up, I recommend getting him into the vet tomorrow.

ok I will do it, I did try to put water in his mouth but he not want any, should I try to use a syringe to give him water?

You can give a small amount of water, but if he throws it up, stop.

why was I charged $17 after I saw it was only $5?

I believe the $5 was a starting point and if you are happy with my answer, you are charged the full amount.
