Ask a Vet and Get Your Veterinary Questions Answered.
Hello, My name isXXXXX will try and help you as best as I can. First, what is you kitty eating? Is she indoor only? Does she live with other pets? Is she on any medications right now? Any previous diseases? What does the vomit look like (food, bile, hair, etc)?
So far as the vet report that came with her says, she has a pretty clean bill of health. We have a chiweenie, she is not on any meds, and the vomit looks like undigested food or barely digested food
is she indoor only? indoor/outdoor? outdoor only? What diet is she currently on? When was the first time you noticed the vomit (how long ago)? Is she on any flea or parasite prevention (ie revolution)?
Indoor only, though the dog goes out several times a day. She is eating Meow Mix, though it's not the best, XXXXX XXXXX caused the least vomit out of the few brands she will eat (won't eat the vet brands). It started shortly after I got her, about 5 mos ago, and isn't on any flea or parasite prevention. Our dog also has a clean bill of health, has never been sick except a brief bout of ringworm.
There are very many things that can cause vomiting, and it is pretty much a symptom for most diseases. That said, I think the first thing I would recommend would be blood work. We will be able to rule out many things based on the bloodwork. The disease I would be most concerned about would be inflammatory bowel disease. This condition would be managed with oral steroid medication and a change in diet.
If it's bowels, is there something I might have noticed about the fecal material I scoop out of her litter box?
you may notice vomiting, but not always diarrhea
Ok, thank you for your time.
