Ask a Vet Archive

When it comes to your pet's health, there's no such thing as a dumb question. Search questions real clients have submitted to our popular Ask a Vet Q&A series, and then submit a question of your own.

  • My cat Scottie is large, has been throwing up water, and not eating much. We think he got into the fake grass and ate some, but we're not sure. We have separated the other animals, food, and water bowls from him, but how long do we wait to take him to a vet?

    With Scottie continuing to vomit, I recommend that you take him in to your veterinarian immediately. The vomiting and not eating can be caused by a number of different things. Your veterinarian will be able to find out what is the most likely cause of the vomiting.

    Vomiting and not eating in larger cats is something to be concerned about. If the vomiting or not eating continues, it can lead to a serious disease of the liver. It is important to have him seen as soon as possible to prevent this from happening.
