Scans on head and back of neck Throwing up food and mucus and pooping right in front of me. Vet said it was eczema. Gave me a cream and I gave her one bath with aloe and oatmeal 3 weeks ago

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

Scabs

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

Corona

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Corona?

No nothing unusual. She is 13. She is also sleeping a lot
