Hello and welcome. I am Dr. B, a licenced veterinarian, and I would like to help you today.First, I would note that if she feels feverish and has kept vomiting I suspect the hairball was a red herring and we may have something more ongoing.Common causes we'd need to consider here are bacterial or viral gastroenteritis, pancreatitis
, parasites, dietary indiscretion, or ingestion of harmful items. Though if she does have a fever then the infectious concerns would be higher on our list of concerns.With that all in mind, we can try some supportive care to settle het stomach. To start, we can try him an OTC antacid (ie Pepcid -0.5 mg per pound or Zantac -2 mg per pound, every 12 hours). Of course if she has any known health issues or is on any other medication, you'd want to check with your vet first.
Once that is on board, we can plan to try a light diet. We can use small meals of rice with boiled chicken
, white fish, cottage cheese or scrambled eggs
. The aim is these are easy to digest and thus reduce gut upset and help her stools too.
Further to this we do need to keep an eye
on her hydration. To do so, we want to make sure her gums are moist, and that she hasn't sunken eyes or skin tenting. Any signs of this confirm dehydration creeping in and would be a sign to have her seen ( especially that is often what makes them feel poorly).
Overall we can see these signs with a range of issues. Still, in this case, we can try the above just now to see if we can soothe her stomach. Of course if she cannot keep the above down, is dehydrated already, or doesn't settle in 24 hours, then we'd want to plan to follow up with your vet. That ways they can rule out harmful concerns and start anti-nausea medication by injection +/- antibiotics to nip this in the bud and get her settled.Please take care,
