Default My baby Meeps is sick

My 2 month old kitten, Meeps, just recieved his distemper and dewormer today. I know that being sleepy is a side effect, but he has also thrown up some white foamy stuff 2 times this evening, and 1 time was orange colored(like his food) I did get warnings each time before he thre up, he started meowing like crazy and then heaved. I am thinking this is a side effect of his vaccination, but would like to know if anyone else has had this happen and how long it could last. Any replies would be wonderful!

Other than the shots, I don't know what is going on either. Call the vet to ask...

Just wanted to say how cute Meeps is (love the name ) and hope kitty feels better soon.

What a pretty baby Meeps is, and your other cat looks gorgeous too! Looks like they already get along well. The deworming medicine could make him sick and vomit, and the distemper shot could also have negative effects.

For future, you may want to consider separating these kinds of treatments. Get the deworming done, then wait a week before vaccination. That's a lot of chemicals all at once in that tiny body.

If he does not eat tonight or in the morning, or if he is lethargic, get him right back in to see the vet.

Welcome to the forum, and please keep us posted on Meeps!

Poor Meeps! What a cutie!

My little old lady cat has issues every single time she has to have a shot of any kind...most recently, she had to have one of her back teeth checked. Luckily it didn't have to come out, but since she was sedated already she got her teeth cleaned, so needed antibiotics. Because of digestive issues, my vet and I opted for a time-released injection instead of having to give it orally for days on end, and it was awful...I got her home and within an hour she threw up 4 times and had very loose stool. She was fine after that episode, but I watched her like a hawk until I was sure she had recovered. Just keep a close eye, and if things appear to get worse instead of better, definitely take her in.

All my rescues have been adults. Of course I have never known their exact ages. One is very sensitive to everything, one is hardy and one is variable. As unique as they are! Just want to wish you the best.
