My cat received a depomedrol injection at about 9:40 this

Customer Question

My cat received a depomedrol injection at about 9:40 this morning. Now she has vomited a few times, her pupils are dialated and she is excessively growling. What should I do? Is this a typical reaction?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your cat eat anything unusual?
Customer: No, the only thing different is the injection. She refuses to eat as well.
JA: OK. The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the cat's name and age?
Customer: Bronx. She is about 2 years old.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Bronx?
Customer: No. She has no medical issues

She is currently lying on the bed and every time someone moves, she growls.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

What did her vomit look like?

Can she keep water down?

Are her gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

If you press on her belly, any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing? Sore anywhere else?

Any diarrhea or black stool?
