I am so sorry Callie is not feeling well.
what foods does she eat? Is it mostly dry food?Has she ever been xrayed or had an ultrasound?Does she have normal bowel movements?Thanks,
I am so sorry Callie is ill.
There are several possibilities for a cat to vomit so much.
*food allergies, blockage, cancer, hyperthyroid, renal disease can all cause vomiting.
You may be looking at severe food allergies or IBS which is characterized by bouts of constipation, vomiting and diarrhea:http://www.marvistavet.com/html/body_inflammatory_bowel_disease.html
IBD or pancreatitis are also possiblities:
megasophagus is also possible.
Discontinue all dry foods and things with chunks, pieces or shreds. Feed smooth pate`canned or baby food. ( no onion or garlic in the jar).
Raise the hight of her bowls by placing them up on phone books.
Acid refluxcan build up between meals. Feed very small, frequent meals. Do not let her gorge.
You can give her one quarter of a ten mg pepsid a/c (famatodiine) every 12 hours.
If the vomiting continues do an xray with contrast and or an ultrasound.
Please let me know how she is doing. I hope all will be well
Sincerest best wishes,
First thing, stop all dry food for Callie. You can feed her only smooth pate canned food and see if the vomiting stops. Dry food is the biggest culprit causing vomiting in cats. That is because they are obligate carnivores that are meant to eat meat.
They were originally desert animals that stayed hydrated by eating the entire rodent or bird they caught.Dry food is unnatural carbs that are foreign to a cats system.
Please read both links written by a feline vet:
Callie can have human foods as long as they have not been cooked with onion or garlic.
Please let me know how Callie is doing. I hope changing her diet will do the trick.
