    1 Year Old Kitty suddenly ill
    RachCrowe posted:
    My one-year-old cat, Daisy, has been vomiting frequently in the past 24 hrs. She has stopped eating, but she has taken some water and her nose is wet so I don't think she is dehydrated.
    She used her litter normally so there is no diarrhoea.
    Her pupils have been a little dilated, but for the most part she is acting normally, if a little listless.
    Any help would be appreciated!
    Drew Weigner, DVM, ABVP responded:
    You probably know she needs to see her veterinarian. There are so many possibilities for her symptoms that only a thorough physical examination will help determine the cause. After 24 hours, she'll start getting dehydrated even if she's drinking, so don't delay any longer!

    Thanks for the response. She hasn't thrown up since I posted and is back eating and playing, but I've scheduled a check up regardless. I appreciate the advice.
