I am sorry to learn Nibby is vomiting. I will do my best to help you today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- How often is he vomiting?

2- Any pre existing medical conditions?

3- Any diarrhea?

4- Did he get into anything?

5- How much does he weigh?

6- Any other symptoms?

7- How long since the last time he vomited?
