Q. Took my cat to vet yesterday after a week of vomitting. Prescribed carafate and cerenia. She ate last night and nothing today, plus diarrhea today.
DR. MASSIMO ORIOLES, DVM, MRCVS
A. Sucralfate (Carafate) and Maropitant (Cerenia) are symptomatic treatment for vomiting.
Symptomatic treatment often are not resolutive and more investigations are needed to actually find the underlying disease (if any) causing the vomiting episodes.
The list of underlying diseases causing vomiting is quite long as this sign is very common and not specific (starting from gastrointestinal causes, to endocrine diseases and urinary/kydneys problems). If diarrhea occurs as well then gastrointestinal inflammation/infection is more likely.
I would recommend to take her back to your vet in 24 hours if the signs persist. Earlier if you notice any other signs such as lethargy, depression, any sign of pain/discomfort, any blood in the feces/sickness.
