The pill had to come out, I just feel awful that she feels so awful. I found something online that said that peroxide isn't recommended in cats because it causes hemorrhagic gastritis in 25% of cats. Blech.

I wish they'd have mentioned that on the phone when I talked to the e-clinic, but geez, how often do you have to make cats puke? Usually the struggle is to get the pills *into* cats, not back out of them!

After reading the info I found below, I would take the cat to the vet to be checked out:

Generally, cats are only given hydrogen peroxide to induce vomiting if they have eaten something poisonous. If this is the reason you gave it to your cat, you need to take your cat to a veterinarian right away. The hydrogen peroxide may have gotten the cat to vomit and therefore taken care of any immediate danger, but there could still be some poison in the cat's system, or even other damage depending on what it ate. Also, hydrogen peroxide is given to cats in very small amounts. You would need to put it in a lot of water to be safe for your pet. If you accidentally gave your cat too much, this could be just as dangerous as poison. Hydrogen peroxide is highly corrosive, and can cause damage to membranes in an animal's stomach, resulting in internal bleeding. It can also cause blistering, stomach pain, diarrhea, and further vomiting. If this is the case, your cat still needs taken to a veterinarian promptly.

To summarize, if your cat is still showing symptoms of any kind after this, it needs to be taken to a veterinarian. This should be done any time a cat ingests something toxic, if that is why you gave it the hydrogen peroxide. If it is not the reason, and your cat is still showing symptoms, it is most likely caused by the hydrogen peroxide itself. Either situation is dangerous for your cat, and it needs immediate care.

I took her into work yesterday and she got Subq fluids and a shot of Cerenia to stop the vomiting. She is feeling much better today. No more vomiting and she's eating, though not normally yet. She's feeling well enough to be trying to steal my lunch.

We sent out a full CBC/chem profile/T4 because she lost another pound since July. She was borderline hyperthyroid then but couldn't tolerate the oral medication. She's slightly higher (3.86 --> 4.11, high end of normal is 3.9) so we're going to try the transdermal gel that we have compounded. I've seen it work for some cats, not at all for others.

My other cat had radioiodine treatment for his hyperthyroidism and it worked brilliantly. I'd like to get Jewel in for that, but I don't know when it'll be able to happen. I'd have to take off work to take her in (it's like an hour and a half away without traffic) plus it's $1000 and she has to live in my bathroom for three weeks afterward or something (maybe it's only two- it's a long time either way) because she'll be radioactive. But it WORKS and it's once and done and you don't have to mess around with twice-daily medication.
