Q. My female cat who was recently separated from her kittens has been urinating and vomiting blood + diarrhoea for the last 2 days.. What's going on?
A. The GI upset can have many causes. Unless you see a vet for an exam and diagnostics, you may never know the cause. Frequently, the symptoms resolve with supportive care. Withhold food for 12-24 hours. Allow small amounts of water or unflavored PediaLyte. Resume feeding a bland diet (1:1 ratio of plain boiled boneless chicken and plain white rice). Feed in small, frequent amounts waiting at least one hour between feedings. If the vomiting stops, continue feeding until the stool is normal. Transition slowly to the regular diet. If the vomiting or diarrhea donâ€™t stop, definitely see your veterinarian.
