Hello, my name is***** I have experience and education in exotic/avian medicine in addition to dogs and cats. I am NOT available by phone so you may ignore the request for a phone call if it automatically generates and we will continue the chat via text. I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you.  It may take me a few minutes to respond as I may be typing up a response or helping another concerned pet owner.

Veterinary Practice Laws of my state only allow me to provide general advice regarding your pet’s health condition. I cannot provide a diagnosis or prescribe medications without performing a physical exam on your pet.  I will help you decide if the problem with your pet is something you can manage at home, or if additional diagnostic testing or treatment needs to be performed by a veterinarian.

Did she go to the vet before or after the tylenol? Tylenol can be extremely toxic in cats due to their inability to process it. Do you know if she actually drank the water?

She went to the vet before the Tylenol was given and my mom said she made sure she drank the water
It was crushed and mixed in with the water

How long ago was this now?

I think it would be a good idea to bring her to emergency right away where they can induce vomiting and get her started on activated charcoal and potentially fluids as this can be so toxic to cats and she is so small. I would advise giving your emergency clinic a call before heading there to let them know you are on the way.

Ok. Thank you

I wish the best to you all. Hopefully rapid care will limit side effects.
