Dr. Joey :

Hello I am Dr. Joey. Thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 15 years of experience. I look forward to working with you.

Dr. Joey :

I am quite concerned about your cat based on what you have written. We need to determine if this is an emergency situation such that your cat cannot wait until tomorrow. Signs that would indicate this is an emergency and you should not wait would include profound drowsiness/lethargy, pale/white (or yellow) gums, dehydration (dry gums), profuse vomiting/diarrhea, or abdominal pain (when you press on his abdomen he gets mean/tries to bite or howls in pain), or frequent trips to the litter box without urinating.

Dr. Joey :

Should you note any of those then I recommend have him seen right away on emergency. Otherwise, you could monitor. You should keep him somewhere safe indoors. Somewhere warm and out of drafts with his food/water nearby. Then, have him seen as soon as possible.
