I am sorry to hear about Timon vomiting so much. If he can't even keep water down, he may be getting dehydrated.

There are many possible reasons for him to vomit so much: pancreatitis, intestinal blockage from eating a toy or string or yarn, infection, liver or kidney disease, cancer. The best thing to do is to have your veterinarian examine him, and try to find out the cause of the vomiting.

You can't treat him at him since he would vomit back up any medication you give him. When a cat can't even keep water down, we give them fluids for dehydration, injections for vomiting, and then try to find and treat the underlying cause.

If you lift his lip and look at his gums, do they look pink, or pale? They might be dark if he is a black cat. If his gums look pale, he is possibly seriously ill, and in need of medical treatment.

Please let me know how he is doing and what other questions you may have.

I will use your service again. I was very pleased with the response and the fact that you have a low cost option so that those of us on fixed income can have questions answered. I will also recommend you to others.

KarenJackson Heights, NY

You helped us to come to what we believe is a better next step in Jack's treatment, and hopefully have saved us $800!! Thanks again!

Jack's MomTuscon, AZ

The vet said that the information and my following it will be what made the difference. Thanks again for being so very helpful.

TracyGrayson, LA

My oldest male cat had a seizure this evening. This site was the first place I could think of to go after the seizure had passed. Dr. Lucy was fantastic and she was spot on!

DebbieUSA

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
