My cat eat a small piece of orchid leaf

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What seems to be the problem with your cat?

He immoderate threw up im wondering if thats toxic or if he may need some kind of emetic or anti toxin or something my vet told me to call poison control

Veterinarian's Assistant: Did you see what your cat ate?

Orchid leaf

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

from google it looks like the phalaenopsis orchid
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
he ate part of the leaf - not the flower

Thanks

Okay no worries beyond what we already saw

Any leaves can cause GI upset

This species/orchid is not toxic beyond that

You do not have to do anything else

I hope that helps

Paul
