You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply. Please be patient. This may take a few minutes.

Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 1 month ago.

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Destolit is a bile acid ordinarily well-tolerated by cats. I don't believe it should be incriminated in Purdy's vomiting. Sinulukux couldn't be found. Please check the spelling of that drug and I'll see if it could be problematic.

anti biotic synulox is the other medication for purdy.
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 1 month ago.

Thank you. Synulox is the antibiotic amoxicillin/clavulanate which is known to cause gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea. Yes, it would be prudent to stop its administration and let Purdy's vet know that you've done so. Please continue our conversation if you wish.
