I have had a new kitten for about a week now, she is about 7 weeks old and has just recently gotten very sick. Since last night she developed a little cough. I immediately brought her to the animal hospital just to get it checked out where they gave her antibiotics and said it was normal for a cat being in a new environment. This morning I realized she had not eaten since last night and therefore decided to bring her back. The vet who I got today rushed me a little and was very degrading because I'm a younger female saying things like "have you ever had a cat before?" I explained I had had cats my whole life and never come into a problem like this before. He gave her new anti-biotics along with a tube of medicine called nutracal which is supposed to maintain a cats bloodsugar and keep them hydrated when their not eating. I don't know what to do because the cat is now throwing up everything I give her. Please someone let me know if their is anything i can do to make this little baby eat!!!!
