Customer Question
My cats been throwing...

My cats been throwing up multiple times a day every day for some time now. I've taken him into the vet: blood test was perfect, I'm still trying to get a stool sample for them...he eats normally, has a good appetite. We're talking about changing his food to a prescription food but we want to be guaranteed that it'll work before we try since we're struggling with money at the moment. He poops normally, no diarrhea... one thing I noticed is he guards the water dish & eats very little at a time, but eats multiple times a day (we leave the food out all day since we have three cats). Any suggestions on what I should do?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your cat eat anything unusual?

No he's an indoor cat so he only eats the cat food

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the cat's name and age?

His name is ***** ***** he was born in 2012

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Edgar?

I told them everything I know /: they can't do an ultrasound since they don't have the right mechanics, so they've suggested to me to change to prescription food

I also think he's an anxious cat.. he's afraid to go outside & he also practically screams at my door when I'm in there. Could that be causing him to throw up ?

Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand Edgar has a history of vomiting multiple times a day. Blood tests were all normal, but no other tests such as x-rays or ultrasound have been performed. You are currently treating with a prescription diet. I hope I got that summary correct, but please let me know if I am missing anything. I am sorry to hear about his unfortunate problem. Can you please tell me what prescription food he is eating now?
