I have a 6 year old car cat She ate a houseplant on Sunday.

Customer Question

hello I have a 6 year old car cat She ate a houseplant on Sunday. A non toxic one that is safe for cats but I think the amount she injested made her very sick. She had diorhea and vomiting Sunday. I took her to the vet on Monday morning and the vet said she was OK. He gave her an injection to help with the vomiting and said I should see a difference within a couple of hours
JA: I'll do all I can to help. Did you see what the cat ate?
Customer: She was doing a lot better yesterday and this morning. However I have come home this evening and she is not eating and its like food is making her sick. I got some treats to see if the smell would persuade her to eat but nothing. She has been sick once again but its just bile as I don't think she has anything in her stomach
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the cat?
Customer: no just that she did have an injection from the vet yesterday and it did help her im not sure if maybe tonight is just a reaction to the medicine and maybe she will be OK tomorrow. Im just worried its like she can't eat its like the smell and taste are making her vomit
