Recently we started a Home Care series. The advice in these articles is not meant to replace the advice and consultation of your veterinarian ... but as I have seen in my practice, many well-intentioned pet owners try to help their pets at home and they inadvertently do the wrong things.
If you're going to care for your cat at home it's important that you understand what needs to be done. So we have been working on a Home Care series to give pet owners the information they need. We want to expand this to cover all of the common problems that affect our pets.
Today I want to tell you about the article Cats with Vomiting and Diarrhea. This is probably the #1 medical problem that sends cats to the vet.
There are lots of reasons for vomiting and diarrhea. But if you are at home, what can you do to help? What medication can you give? What is safe? What is dangerous? This article will answer your questions. Go to: Home Care for the Cat with Vomiting and Diarrhea
I recommend that you print this article and keep it handy. You never know when you will need this information.
I hope this helps keep your cat healthy. Remember, very common reasons for vomiting and diarrhea are food changes, being fed table scraps or getting into the trash. Keep trashcans inaccessible and if you're going to change your cat's food, do it gradually.
