Help, My cat keep getting sick?
The cat is a 2 year old male that has never have any medical issues. Over the last 2 days he has thrown up his food within 20 minutes to an hour of consumption it, we have stopped feeding him for now (12 hours or so). He is drinking river, sociable with our other cat, and hasnt been scared or timid as a sick cat normally acts. In the year and a half that we have have him, he has only had 2 hairballs. Both cats own been eating the same dry food for over a month I would approaching to hear what other experices people have had near this sort of behavior.
Your cat could be throwing up the food because he gorges himself. Or, he possibly can digest the hard food, and a switch to soft or canned food will alleviate the problem. OR, you might want to try mixing dry near canned to see if that takes fastidiousness of the problem.
Many variables here. So, if you really care about your pet, It's best to bear your cat to the vet for the correct diagnosis.
pass him in to the rspca and get a ginger fat cat
they're the best!!
I have a similar problem near my calico, took her to the vet and he said that some cats have a bacteria in their stomach that will impose that . He put her on prednisone and that has stopped it for the most part. he may be eating too smartly or it could be something altogether different. I would take him to the vet and get him checked. You can always ask your vetif you can do payments, better not detrimental than sorry
I would still take the cat to the vet for a check-up just surrounded by case.
I hope everything is ok!
If he throws up every time he eat even a few bites, take him to the vet. If it is just occasionally or only after he have eaten a good amount, try doing smaller feedings and see if it improve.
A vet visit is really not expensive especially when compared to urgent care stop by when the cat starts to show other symptoms of something seriously wrong. I have had cats that threw up daily, normally right after eating but sometimes up to an hour after. I now know it was cheap cat food cause the problem. They got dry food and wolfed it down. Too much in a cat's stomach too fast, and up it will come.
Try smaller feedings and see how it go. If that does not work, call your vet. And get your cats on a good part food. Stay away from foods sold in grocery stores or department stores. Go to a pet food store. You can find some good option there. Read labels and go for meat, not fish. Grain-free is best. Yes, good food costs more than junk foods, but you will save money over time because you will enjoy fewer vet bills. Plus, your cats will actually require less food because the pious stuff is nutrient-dense. The cheap stuff is almost all grains and by-products. Any food that contains gluten is expected to cause vomiting. Wheat is typically an allergen to cats, so if the labels say wheat or gluten, put that one back on the shelf.
Feed grain-free high quality cat food individual, at set meal times, and you will have healthier, happier cats that are smaller number likely to become ill. They might throw up in the emergence of starting the new food because they are not used to it, so plan on feeding totally small amounts at a time for several days in the beginning.
Shouldn't own mentioned your financial situation...lots of people here are rich and never have financial difficulties and think that population who do, should have pets.
My cat have done that before. In her case, it was because she be "wolfing down" her food. I gave her smaller quatities at a time...problem was solved. Hope he gets better.
"It is regular for your cat to have hairballs occasionally. However, if she must deal near them frequently, dangerous problems can develop. Hairballs can block her intestinal tract, making it impossible for her to either vomit or eliminate. In reality, twenty-five percent of all impaction cases (something "stuck" in the digestive tract) that veterinarians see are due to hairballs. Signs of a major hairball problem, and possible impaction:
* vomiting of undigested food
* dry retching
* inability to defecate
* swollen belly
If you suspect your cat is impacted, see your veterinarian immediately. Your veterinarian has several options to resolve impactions, but serious blockages may require surgical removal. It is far better that you use preventive practices, and provide assistance near existing hairballs, before such problems occur. " -http://www.drsfostersmith.com/pic/articl...
