Vomiting pink liquid

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

Hey guys,

 

Newman is about 4 months old. Throughout the last 24 hours he's been throwing up about every five hours. He isn't drinking or eating and even though he's usually energetic, he's been sitting in the same corner all day aside from getting up to vomit. He did recently chew up one of his old toys. The toy was a fluffy hot pink feather boa-type thing. We thought that it was just upsetting his stomach, but he's chewed on similar toys before and never had a reaction like this. Although the boa was showing up in his vomit before, now there's only a pink liquid. I haven't been able to sleep because I just feel so bad for him. Should I take him in immediately or wait a little longer to see if it gets better? I read to take away his food and water for 12-24 hours and monitor him then slowly introduce a rice and boiled chicken diet. Should I try that or does he need to be drinking water? I'm a little lost and a quite a bit worried. Any words of advice would help!

 

Sincerely,

Sarah

It could be blood due to straining?

 

Personally l would take Newman to the vets just to gets checked over, especially when he's not drinking because he must have fluids in him or he'll dehydrate.

 

It happened with my Rosie and she was given an anti sickness shot

I wouldn't wait any longer. If your cat swallowed something, he needs to see the vet. I hope it all works out for him and you.

The cat must be checked immediately.Every colored vomiting may indicates bleeding somewhere in the digesting system.May be it's the throat or the stomach-both situations are dangerous.And throw away all toys that can be torn apart during the play-cat can choke with the pieces.

Hope,the cat has been checked already.

Since your cat has already not been eating or drinking for 24 hours already, I would NOT take away his food and water. You are risking dehydration and fatty liver. I would go to the vet.

I'd be concerned about obstruction/perforation at this point. I'd get him to a vet ASAP.

Hi Sarah, I would not under any circumstances withhold food from a kitten, sick or not and I would urge you to take your kitten to the vet right away. It is very important that he eat and drink. Kittens can go downhill quickly. Your worry is best solved by going to the vet on this one. Hard to really say what is going on. vibes.gifvibes.gifvibes.gifvibes.gifvibes.gifvibes.gifvibes.gifvibes.gif for your kitten. Keep us posted.

Hey guys, thanks for all the advice. I took him into the vet this morning and he's currently undergoing surgery. The toy that he ate blocked up a big portion of his intestine and one piece might have perforated the intestinal wall. Luckily since he went in early enough, the vet has high hopes for him. The surgery should be over in about 2-3 hours. I'll update as soon as I can. Please send all your kitty prayers to my little trooper.

Good news! The surgery went flawlessly and Newman is recovering well. He's eating small portions of food and keeping it down so far. He's drinking lots of water and seems to be in a good mood considering the circumstances. Hopefully his recovery will continue in this direction clover_smile_ani.gif thanks again for the support!
