Hi Doctor Paul, Haley Gene, my cat, took the 1/2 pill of the pepcid ac 10mg and she has not thrown up. She did hide, but, I got her out of her hiding place and took her to the cat bed room where her comfy bed awaited. So far so good. She seemed uncomfortable. She did not purr when I held her.

That's a good start

Update me in the morning

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Haley Gene is much better this morn. She hasn't eaten yet though. However, two more of my cats are sick... I'm thinking the recent food I bought. If there is anything else you can think of, please advise. Should I give the others a half of pepcid ac?

That does sound like it could be the food

Lets give them all Pepcid AC yes

Thank you, again. One of the cats is much sicker. He is 13 years old and actually he is a friend's cat, that she dumped on my several years ago. Don't get me wrong, I consider him my cat. I'll keep an eye on him.

Okay

I wonder if this is unrelated to the young ones problem?

Paul

Me too, I wonder. I gave him the pepcid ac this morn, the 2nd half. And he is hiding, sleeping, and when he threw up it was clear, no blood. I gave him a small syringe of water and I just checked on him, and he had some drool coming out of his mouth. He was raised on dry cat food. I give my cats a mix and with plenty of water around the house.

Oh, the younger ones are back to their fun, young selves!
