Customer Question
One of my new...

One of my new kittens (2) that I adopted from the Oregon Humane Society this past Saturday is vomiting on a regular basis. Both males are drinking and eating. The color of the vomit is the same as soy milk but thicker in texture. Both males are active and playful and neither have any diarrhea issues. What’s my next step? Thank you

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

Not that I’m aware of. We cleaned, vacuumed, and cat-proofed the room before putting them in it.

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

Spot and barney

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

Nothing else

I am sorry one new kitty is vomiting.

Give him one quarter of a ten mg pepcid a/c (famotidine). I usually add it to a tablespoon of baby food chicken with no onion or garlic Or canned cat food.Every 12 hours.http://www.1800petmeds.com/Famotidine-prod11171.htmlRemove all dry food and any wet with chunks, pieces or shreds.Feed only smooth pate canned food or baby food.If he gets dehydrated give him tuna water drained from the can.Please let me know how how he is doing.I hope this information has been helpful.
