I am sorry to hear Andra has kidney disease. How high are his blood kidney levels, do you know?

Cat Veterinarian: Rebecca, Cat Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

If he is vomiting, he may have high blood phosphorus, and may benefit from phosphorus binders.

You can try giving him some Pepcid AC (famotidine): 1/4th of a 10 mg pill twice daily.

As kidney disease progresses, cats will lose their appetites, and vomit more. It would help me to see his most recent blood tests, if you have them.
