Question:

pets.ca,

My 10-year-old cat vomited for most of one day. By the time she stopped she had nothing left in her stomach and was just vomiting clear liquid. It has now been 24 hours since the vomiting stopped, but she seems exhausted (probably dehydrated) and is just lying down unwilling or unable to eat or drink. As I don't think she can get her strength back without food and water, what can I do to get her to eat or drink? She is still able to walk and purrs when petted.

Answer:


HI, THIS IS AN EMERGENCY SITUATION YOU ARE WRITING ABOUT. YOU MUST TAKE YOUR PET TO THE VET ASAP.

If this were my pet I'd bring her to an emergency animal hospital. Cats purr even when they are sick or injured, and your cat is sick. She should be immediately rehydrated and examined by a vet.

Good Luck!
