Q. My daughter has three kittens, 5 weeks old. All of a sudden two of them are vomiting and having trouble having bowel movement

A. If your kittens are experiencing a sudden change in health such as inability to have a bowel movement or vomiting it is best to schedule an appointment with your local vet for care. Vomiting, especially in young cats, can quickly cause dehydration and more health problems. Your vet will likely examine the kittens for any signs of illness, and may also recommend an X-ray to check for a stuck object in the body, or bloodwork to check for internal disease. Subcutaneous or IV fluids may also be given to help stop any dehydration and get the kittens feeling better.
