My Cats Coming out of Both Ends after surgery
seahawkchick22 posted:
So my cat Voodoo had surgery on Monday to get a drain tube put in his leg for a abscess. He was doing great after surgery until Saturday we took him in to have the tube removed. That night he started vomiting, then it went to both ends and hasn't stopped. I called the vet and they said wait it might be the anti biotics so stop giving them to him. I cant believe its that since he was on them for 6 days with no problems. Either way I stopped giving to him and he still cant keep anything down. He eats then not even 5 mins later it comes back up. I'm lost on what it may be. We did all the blood test before surgery. Would it be a weird reaction to coming down off the pain killers ( opiates)??

Hey there!

It sounds like your kitty probably needs to be seen by his vet to determine what's going on. While you're waiting for a response here, be sure to give your own vet a call.

Kitty might become dehydrated if he can't keep anything down.

Let us know how it goes.
