Q. After a routine check up with fecal exam and the needed vaccines my 10 week old kitten has vomited and had bloody stools. Is this normal?

Answered By

A. Any pet, as with people, can have reactions even to the most common, safe treatments such as worm doses. It is not common to have signs of a stomach upset and it she is otherwise well with a good appetite and taking water I would keep her on a bland diet for 48 hours and monitor her signs
