My 6 year old kitty has just recently spent 3 days in veterinary care for FUS - Feline Urinary Syndrome...He was flushed and able to urinate on his own on monday, so the vet released him to me. Now, 3 days later, he won't eat or drink - and he is violently vomiting bile - which the vet told me is due to the antibiotic I am giving him - because "he should take it with food". I am extremely worried. Anyone?

Cats dont usually vomit bile unless there have eaten or been given something that there body cannot handle this is there immune systems way of getting rid of the toxin...

I would take your cat either back to the vets or take him to another vet for a second opinion your kitty not eating and drinking is another bad sign as he maybe having an allergic reaction to his antibiotics...

Canned or moist food should be given with a cat or kitten recovering from this infection..

Heating a little canned food in the microwave will make the smell stronger and more tempting for your cat.
Try rubbing some on his tongue to try and get him to eat something...

please keep us posted..

My 12 y.o. cat just finished a 10-day course of antibiotics, the last day she started vomiting and couldn't keep anything down. What literally probably saved her life was plain yogurt with live culture. The vet at the emergency clinic we took her to told us to give her some yogurt as the antibiotics kill off the "bad" and the "good" bacteria in the stomach which can lead to digestive problems. Yogurt with live active culture replenishes the good bacteria. Within 1/2 hour of smearing some yogurt on her face, she was asking for food and, touch wood, she has been eating ever since. We gave her a very small amount of food at a time for several days and continued with the yogurt for a couple of days (just about 1/2 teaspoon at a time).

Thank you so much for responding - I just moved states a week and a half ago, which I am convinced helped cause the FUS (breaks my heart) and after $1000 last week in vet bills, I still don't know the veterinarian I took the boy to. I really really do appreciate the help.
