Male 3 yr old vomits after eating anything. Started last night and otherwise seems to feel good

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the cat eat anything unusual?

Regular hard food and today tried soft. Not eating much but even bite or two comes back up within a few minutes. I'm not aware of him getting into anything. I did give him a Meow Mix treat he hadn't had before

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the cat's name and age?

Jazz 3 and a half

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the cat's name?

Jazz

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

Healthy but on Royal Canine dental diet for gum issues.

Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question.​ I'm sorry to hear that Jazz started throwing up last night. In a young cat with sudden vomiting, there are a few possibilities as to what could be wrong. The most worrisome is that he ate something that is now stuck in his intestines, causing a blockage. Since gut contents cannot get past an obstruction, they have only one way to go - out of the mouth as vomit. Hopefully he does not have an obstruction caused by eating something he shouldn't have. He could just have a viral or bacterial infection. I recommend getting him to the vet for some abdominal x-rays to make sure the does not have a blockage. If he doesn't your vet will probably want to treat with some anti-nausea medication and possibly antibiotics.

Thanks. Have appt at noon tomorrow. Is that soon enough. Also have access to emergency vet before then.

I'm sorry, I'm not able to take a phone call right now. I would not wait until noon tomorrow if he continues to vomit. If he keeps vomiting for a few more hours, I would take him to the emergency vet for the abdominal x-rays.
