I have a 5 year old female Oci-Cat. She weights between 5-7

Customer Question

I have a 5 year old female Oci-Cat. She weights between 5-7 lbs. I took her to our veterinarian and found that she had an intestinal infection that was resolved by giving her Orbax for 7 days. The vet also changed her dry Buffalo Wilderness Indoor food as she was prescribed needing more fiber. The product recommended was Hill Prescription Diet Digestive Weight Management. Both the Blue Buffalo and Hills Diet food causes her to vomit almost every meal. Although she uses a litter box she often poops on the carpets. We clean the box multiple times a day but still no relief. Jan Clyde, San Juan Capistrano

I am sorry that you have been waiting for a response. I recently just logged onto the site and noted that your question hasn't yet been answered. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 25 years’ experience and would be happy work with you if you are still needing assistance.
Can you tell me how the veterinarian diagnosed the intestinal infection?
Was there any testing performed?
Are the stools consistently formed?
How many litter boxes do you have?
Thanks and I will respond further after you reply. There may be a slight delay while I formulate and type a thorough response or I may be offline, but if so, I will respond as soon as I am able.
