My 18 month old female was vomiting up food (digested and undigested) so I took her to the vet on Weds. The vet isn't really sure what's causing it so said the best course of action would be to treat the symptoms.

The Vet gave two injections (antibiotics) and gave me oral antibiotics, worming drops, and hair ball stuff. Also advised me to switch to a diet of tuna, chicken etc for a couple of weeks.

So I've followed all that and she hadn't been sick since Weds although hasn't been quite herself either. I thought it was just a mix of all the different treatments plus whatever was causing the vomiting in the first place.

About 30 mins ago she was sick (looks to be everything she's eaten today - I gave tuna this morning with her antibiotic tablet) she's also eaten some dried food which I put out for the other cat, got distracted and didn't lift it away quickly enough. That's the first dried food she's had since Weds so now I'm wondering if maybe that's what's been making her sick? I haven't changed her food and she's had the same thing all along except from when I switched from kitten to adult but still the same brand.

I'm sorry this is long, I'm just really worried sad

Cereals make my cat throw up, applaws has potato in it as opposed to maize and he can eat that safely.

He doesn't because of course he went off it as soon as I bought the big bag of it home.

Do you think she could be fine with the regular food and then it could just not agree with her any more?

I'm just about to feed some tuna as its antibiotic time but I'll be sure to not let her get any dried food from now on and see if she's sick again or not.

Try butchers choice, it's cereal free.

Our vets didn't know what to do with our cat so I put him on cereal free and it's ok now.

He was nearly a year when the problems started, he'd been on tinned and pouches with biscuits too.

Ok thanks Fluffy, I'll try that and see if it helps.

It's butchers classic, just seen it in the cupboards.

Had a similar thing with our car last year but he was very wobbly as well and losing weight.

There is a specialist food by Hills for sensitive stomachs. It is very pricey but definitely made the difference. They do wet and dry version and vet advised wet food only.

Hope that helps

Just to add dried food really made our cat sick.

Thank you racmum, I'll have a look for it. It can't be more expensive than constantly shampooing my carpets!
