My 8 year old male cat is barely eating and drinking these

Customer Question

My 8 year old male cat is barely eating and drinking these past 3 days.. He's lethargic..and sleeping a lot
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the cat. What is the cat's name?
Customer: Poncho
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Poncho?
Customer: I had recently changed food from Iams Pro to Iams senior. Ponch has had issues with throwing up sensitive stomach, but was eating Iams Pro quite well before change. The other cat same age is eating both Iams OK without problems.
