48 hour D and V?

(3 Posts)

Hi all,
Just before Christmas my ginger boy was suffering with horrible D and V. I took him to the vet who was great and assured me he had picked up some kind of bug from stuffing himself with dirty voles, etc. she gave me anti biotics and some stuff called pro-kaolin which I think is like "cat Yakult" and soothes the gut.
The last two days, tortie girl has been having the same symptoms. Horrible pale, chunky sick (sorry) and some bile, combined with very loose poo on the floor. She was very down in the dumps this morning - didn't want to go out, hid under table, I was really worried. Managed to get some pro-kaolin in her and in a very short space of time she perked up and wanted to go out.
She seems fine now....should I take her to the vets? Do cats get fleeting bugs?

They do sometimes get fleeting bugs yes. If they start eating again and can keep it down, and seem OK in themselves, then you probably don't need to do anything.

Thanks, catneuterer. Yes, she's eaten a little and not vomited again. In fact she's lying belly up on my lap right now and my wine is out of reach! God I love her!she would sit with her nose to mine all day if she could.
