Customer Question

I have 16 yr old cat getting skinnier n skinnier seems like maybe can't digest food or protein. I have tried blending Turkey all natural no preservatives of any kind in his kitten milk. Throws it up does eat kitten milk without throwing up tried adult cat milk throws it up. So believe maybe trouble digesting protein appetite still good still tries to eat. Also blend some c/d prescription food stays down but won't eat a lot of it

Hello. I apologize that no one has assisted you sooner. My name is ***** ***** I just logged in and saw your question. I would be happy to help I just have a few questions. When was he last seen by a vet for senior blood work and an exam? If blood work was done recently were there any abnormalities? Any increase in his drinking or urination? Is Somba on any medication? Why was he given c/d prescription food? When did he last pass stool and was it normal?
