Based on the symptoms you have described, it is possible that your cat has ingested antifreeze. Antifreeze contains ethylene glycol, which is highly toxic to cats and can cause serious health problems, including kidney failure.
If you suspect that your cat has ingested antifreeze, it is important to take immediate action. First, try to remove any remaining antifreeze from your cat's mouth. Then, contact your veterinarian or an emergency animal hospital right away. Do not induce vomiting unless instructed to do so by a veterinarian, as this can cause more harm than good.
In the meantime, you can try to keep your cat hydrated by offering small amounts of water or an electrolyte solution. However, it is important to note that these measures are not a substitute for veterinary care.
If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to come back to us! Thank you.
