We are going to switch to Pills instead of liquid Antibiotics

Coco keeps throwing the liquid up even with food. We get the Med in about a hour and I hope it works. Coco gives me a hard time with pills.

I really hope the pills will work. (Pills didn't work for us when just recently we had the same problem.) I have my fingers crossed for Coco that the pills will solve the problem. (If not, you can always use injections. It's easy and they can show you how to give them at home.)

Thanks,
Coco got Clavamox in pill form. I just gave her one in a pill pocket and she ate it with no problem.

That's wonderful, great news. I'm happy for you because you and Coco really needed a break after all the problems from the antibiotics.

Coco barfed last night. She acts like she can not taste her food and wont eat it. She steals the other Cats food. Can the Antibiotics cause her to lose her taste.

Oh gosh, I'm really sorry. I was thinking of you and hoping things would work out this time around.

If Coco absolutely has to have an antibiotic, please, talk to your vet about injections. I don't know of any other way to solve this truly terrible problem.
The injections bypass the stomach so you don't see any vomiting or loss of appetite. (We have to use injections whenever our Rosie needs an antibiotic, if we don't, we run into the same problem you're having with Coco.)

Thanks,
I will try a Pill tonight and see what happens. If she gets sick again I will ask about the shot. Today she ate some of her food.

Keeping my fingers crossed for you.
It never occured to me to ask my vet and an anti-emetic was never offered, but I'm wondering if an anti-emetic could possibly work in a situation like this. Please, try to find out.

I can ask about that.
