My cat is currently...

My cat is currently leaving small puddle of liquid feces around the apartment. It looks as if she's struggling to go and there seems to be solid waste coming out as well

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is your cat's name and age?

Morgan and shes about 14 or 15

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

Nothing as of now

Also she just vomited a yellowish liquid
Cat Veterinarian: Dr B, Cat Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

This means Morgan is severely constipated. This is a condition called obstipation.......this is a medical emergency.....Morgan needs to go to the ER tonight as this cannot be a problem managed at home....do not try and give her an enema as human enemas can kill cats......

Once she is cleaned out by ER vet then they can put her on royal canin gastrointestinal high fiber response food to prevent this from happening again. They will also need to do an xray of her colon and bloodwork to check kidney function...

Vomiting is common with severe obstipation and this is very painful for your pet so go to the ER now.....

One last thing. She has since gone into the litter box and has been grooming herself. She's no longer acting the same as she was
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I'm still going to take her.
Cat Veterinarian: Dr B, Cat Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

She still has stool most likely in her colon that she cannot get out...this does not get better on its own...she needs to be totally cleaned out and started on the diet I listed above or this will continue to happen......or have miralax added to her diet...but first she must get cleaned out....

I would very much appreciate it if you would rate me 5 stars for my very prompt and attentive service. And do let me know if you need any additional help! You can rate me in the top right corner of the page. Thank you very much! DRB
