brick and mortar. i am not
going to commit e-commerce for cat food.
granted, cats throw up because they like to
, but changing their food just accelerates the process.
They are pretty good barf experts. LoL.
When it's hairballs, that's one thing. But one of ours is also throwing up food fairly regularly. He's about 11 or 12 now, and while still a total scamp and El Destructo, his face is looking a little old, and we don't think he's feeling too well. He and the dog go to the Vet tomorrow...the dog went yesterday for an ear infection--tomorrow is just routine, but the cat to be seen about getting sick and possibly a growth on his throat.
It could be a sign of kidney failure. One of ours did that and it turns out she has end stage kidney failure. We administer fluids with a vitamin mix under her skin with a fluid drip every day. Test the cat by lifting the skin, it needs to drop down relatively quickly. I’d take him to a vet to confirm. Administering the fluids is pretty easy, our vet trained us to do it. Some days we skip the drip, but if we go more than a day between she will throw up. So generally we try for every day. Sorry to hear your kitty has issues ours is 18 years old and she started getting the regular fluid around January. Before that we brought her to the vet once or twice a month.
Also could be thyroid or pancreatitis..have him checked.
