Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
Is the increased thirst only since this morning?
What is he bringing up in his vomit? Just water?
Why is on Reglan/Flagyl?
How long as the cataract been present? Did his vet diagnose its source?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No the increase in his thirst has been going on for sometime....a mucous water right after he drinks ton of water in the morning. My vet thought he might have a parasite of some sort. The Regan helped initially but then the committing continued after I ran out. No diagnosis in the cataract, in fact, my vet initially thought it was just a deformity in his eye.

Thank you,
Since the thirst isn't a new finding, can you tell me if his vet has done any bloods or urine testing for this? What did they find?
