Q. My cat is throwing up and it's a bright yellow liquid,we don't know if he got into something or if something serious going on.we need to know .

A. If the vomiting is accompanied by diarrhea, lethargy or loss of appetite then you should see your vet. If she seems otherwise "normal", withhold food for 12-24 hours. Allow small amounts of water or unflavored PediaLyte. Resume feeding a bland diet (1:1 ratio of plain boiled boneless chicken and plain white rice). Feed in small, frequent amounts waiting at least one hour between feedings. If the vomiting stops, transition slowly to the regular diet. If not or you see other symptoms, see your veterinarian.
