Customer Question
My cat does not...

My cat does not have much of an appetite and he just vomited up water

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

No. He’s not eating much today but when he did it was his normal wet cat food.

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. The Expert will know what to do. What is your cat's name and age?

Tigger and he is a Tabby that’s 11 years old

Veterinarian's Assistant: How old is Tigger?

Tigger was 1 when we got him in 2007 so he is 11 years old now

No appetite for 2 days and a little diarrhea but the vomiting water just happened today
Cat Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

Okay I am a little worried here since he is 11 years old

This may just be acute gastroenteritis but we also have to worry about pancreatitis and metabolic disease or infection

Cats that dont eat get that much sicker due to fatty liver

Lets see if we can get him sorted at home today but if not then he will need to be examined and his blood and urine testes

Okay?

Paul
