Dehydration can kill in a matter of hours, it can also trigger kidney failure. Pinch the back of your cat's neck, does it stay in a fold? If it does or is slow to go back that indicates the degree to which your cat is dehydrated.
If your cat is not severely dehydrated and you are able to locate something called Pedialyte it will help to replace the lost electrolytes that result from vomiting and help to rehydrate your cat. It's for children.Available at any drugstore Get the unflavoured kind.
Buy an eyedropper and give several tablespoons of Pedialyte(tepid temperature)at the front of the mouth. Take your time to do this so that fluid does not inadvertently get into the lungs.Four tablespoons every hour. It is possible to overdose on Pedialyte so after approximately 8 tablespoons of this spaced over several hours begin to give some boiled cooled to tepid water and continue to give the Pedialyte, several tablespoons, every 4-5 hours inbetween. Then cat back further on the Pedialyte as you see improvement.
NOTE: If your cat is severely dehydrated, if the skin at the back of the neck stays pinched, if you open the mouth and it's sticky and dry, if the eyes appear sunken, GET TO THE VET because your cat will be too severely dehydrated for the above method to work. Please do not take a chance and try to rehydrate the cat yourself if your cat is more than a little dehydrated. Time is of the essence for a severely dehydrated cat. Again, dehydration can kill in a matter of hours and for a severely dehydrated cat he/she cannot possibly consume the amount of fluids that would be necessary to rehydrate them and save their lives. It would equal an equivalent in the area of 1/2 cup of fluid into the system fast and a dehydrated cat would vomit that amount if given orally. Their system shuts down and their body wouldn't be able to assimilate it fast enough. Not only that they cannot drink water on their own when it gets to that stage, even to save their lives. At that point a vet is needed to give subcutaneous fluids under the skin. It has been noted that once a cat is rehydrated they will begin to drink on their own. It's possible for the individual, properly instructed, to give sub-q's but this is not something to be learned while your cat's life hangs in the balance.
