Customer Question
Sometimes right after one...

Sometimes right after one of my cats eats (whether it's dry or canned) he regurgitates. Sometimes he will throw up, but mostly he regurgitates. I have had him checked out outside of tests and the vets can't seem to find the answer. outside of that he is fine and healthy!!!

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your cat eat anything unusual?

It is not usually messy (unless it's canned food) and he won't touch anything outside of his own cat food!

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

Sammy is his name and he is 8 years old. My husband adopted him from a humane society near our residence.

Veterinarian's Assistant: How old is Sammy?

He is eight years old.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Sammy?

No, not off hand. He is very playful and active!!

Cat Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 4 months ago

Have there been any changes to the diet? New food, including a change of flavors or protein source within the same brand? New treats? Bones? Has any human food been fed? Torn up toys or trash? Stressful changes to the environment? Addition of medication?

What diagnostics have been run, if any, and when? I'm curious about any bloodwork, fecal, urinalysis or x-rays that might have been performed since the onset of symptoms.

When did this begin?
