Customer Question
Hi, my cat threw...

Hi, my cat threw up a clear bubbly flem 5 times yesterday he sounded like he was gagging after he threw up. But with water and wet food it went away. Today he threw up like a pea size amount 2 times and then couldn’t get into position to throw up. He fell over 2 times. Should I be really worried?

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

I don’t think so. He doesn’t eat foreign things. Just his hair when he licks himself and if he finds it on the floor

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. The Expert will know what to do. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your cat?

I had yo change his diet about a year ago. He eats urinary hills science diet. With hair all control.dry and wet food daily

Have there been any changes to the diet? New food, including a change of flavors or protein source within the same brand? New treats? Bones? Has any human food been fed in the last few days (even if your pet regularly receives it)? Torn up toys or trash? Stressful changes to the environment? Addition of medication? Toxin ingestion?
