My cat has stopped eating her dry food no matter what brand.

Customer Question

My cat has stopped eating her dry food no matter what brand. When I give her canned food she throws it up and has diaharea. I have resorted to giving her canned cat food and now she will go to litter box and then come out and throw up everytime. There is not much poop in littler box but she pee's a lot.
