Q. Diarrhea vomiting yellow loss appetite.

Answered By

A. This could be many things. Vomiting and diarrhea along with loss of appetite can be caused by problems in the GI tract (dietary issues, infections, food allergies, foreign objects lodged in the intestines or stomach, parasites), problems elsewhere in the abdomen (kidney or liver problems), or problems that involve the entire body (hormonal diseases like diabetes). The best thing to do is to schedule an appointment with a vet ASAP for an exam and diagnostics to figure out what is going on and get appropriate treatment.
