Ask Dr. Dobson: Sick Cat

My cat the other day, jumped into my lap, started twitching and puking up yellow bile, she seems ok now, but I was wondering if I should bring her in for a full blood work up just to be safe

Hello,

Your cat may have a small short-lived bug or may have eaten something that did not set well.  Blood work would be a great idea if you would like to know the function of your pets internal organs, hydration status and other things noted on a basic blood panel.

Even though your cat is acting okay now, she may still have underlying disease processes going on that would cause the vomiting and twitching. We would also recommend that your cat be brought in for a well check by our veterinarian so that she may discuss probable causes with you.

Call us at (801)224-2233 for an appointment at your convenience.

Thank you
