My kitten keep on throwing up clear fluid, what do i do?
He is about 3 months old and he is at a healthy solidity and seems to be drinking and eating normally but everyday he throws up a clear but gooey soft. Why is this?
PLEASE do not post take him to the vet!!
only give me solid answers. please and thank you.
If you aren't "free feeding" him, try setting out a dish (square cake pan is good) of dry KITTEN FOOD, for him to "nibble" on during the daylight. If he IS getting too hungry before he's fed, this will take watchfulness of it.
I have 12 indoor cats, and one of them seems to do this a lot. I attribute it to waiting ( within line ) too long before eating. She doesn't want to get through when the other cats are around, even though there are two dishes of dry food ( separate rooms ) that she could eat from. There isn't anything else wrong, so I just verbs it up and don't worry about it. She never throws up food..just the foamy "stuff"!!
Hope this ease your mind about your kitten...Good luck.
Another possibility is gentle poisoning. Does he have access to any cleaning products, detergents, insect poison or traps, etc.? Household plants? Anything that could be poisonous if ingested? Kittens nick all kinds of things in their mouths. If he go outside (he really shouldn't be allowed outside) it could be poisoning from just about anything. The reality it keeps going on, though, suggests if it's poisoning, he's into it a lot.
He could also enjoy something lodged in his stomach, have an infection, or even be having a serious problem close to organ failure or cancer.
I know you don't want to have to take him to the vet, but deplorably that IS the real answer. There are too many things it could be to have someone diagnose it over the internet. This could be impressively serious. You're just going to have to deal next to taking him to the vet. Providing vet care is a major part of responsible pet ownership, and your kitten desires a doctor visit.
Withhold food for 24-36 hours. Cat can help yourself to Pepcid AC. 0.25 mg. per pound twice a day.
My cats puke up clear foamy/bubbly stuff every time they get ahold of cellophane or some other small plastic (usually packaging, like on DVDs). They can't resist chewing on it and shutting up ingesting it before we know what's going on.
Check to be sure there's nothing caught surrounded by your kitty's throat. Then check the kitter box to see if anything passes. If is continues and nothing have passed (assuming it is clear and kind of bubbly-foamy, and therefore likely plastic ingestion) you may own to seek veterinary attention, as it can cause serious damage to your cat's stomach.
Taking him to the vet is the REAL answer. If you threw up every day, you would need to see a doctor. Now do the right thing and endow with your kitten he care he needs.
p.s. human drug and home remedies can be very dangerous and sometimes butcher.
If you don't want to be in motion to the vet, you could at least call there and they can offer you some suggestions. My vet is very good about giving suggestions over the phone.
