Q. Wim-z hasnt been active and 1/2 hr ago she threw up. I took her temperature twice and both times came back 100.4, I know this is low... Correct?

A. If Wim-z is a dog or a cat, no, this is a normal temperature. They tend to be around 100 to 102.2 or so. There could be many things causing her to vomit and not feel well. If she continues to vomit, doesn't want to eat, has diarrhea, or the lethargy/inactiveness continues she should see a vet today. If you want to consult about the specific details I'd be happy to help.
