cat throwing up, not eating or drinking after rabies vaccination
My sister's cat Daisy is about 8 years old and she just got her rabies vaccination on 5/24/12 which was a thursday and has been throwing up a few times a day for almost a week so she decided to take her back to the vet to get a blood test done and keep her there for 3 nights to get her supervised. While there he gave her a Penicillin and Cerenia injection, anesthesia (isoflurane)- he said she was aggresive, he did a Complete blood test and a blood profile major. conclusion: The vet said her blood test came back normal and that she is a healthy cat and nothing is wrong with her. But we got her home and she is extremely thin and has lost a lot of weight. She  isn't eating or drinking anything and the medication they gave my sister to give to her 2X a day to help her with nausea but she cant keep that down either. It is not 6/2/12 and i checked her to see if she is dehydrated and she is because when i pinch the skin on the4 back of her neck it goes back really slow and her gums are a pale pink.
what to do...? please help

hi, regardless of what the blood tests revel you have a very ill kitty, she cannot go this long vomiting and not eating....Hepatic lipidosis sets in rather quickly with cats.
she needs hydration via IV or else she is in extreme danger.....btw IMO a convenia injection should never have been given to a cat thats already not feeling well, thats just adding more stress for her system to deal with, I really think you need to seek another opinion quickly...
sending some prayers, keep us updated okay♥

I also went through similar trauma in regards to this rabies vaccination  in my cats case it was because they gave her 3 shots together, she was sick for a week but did recover okay
