Are Dreamies making him sick?

I bought Troy some Dreamies as a comforter when his brother died recently. Neither cat had had treats for over a year because Barnaby who had crystals in his urine was not to have treats so it was easier for neither of them to have any. Both times I have given Troy Dreamies there has been massive, and I mean massive, piles of sick everywhere. I haven't given them to him for a good few weeks and no sick. Could it be the Dreamies or not or should I try some again and be prepared?

i never feed biscuits to cats. My first cat would gobble them and then sick them up everywhere semi digested.

and one of my current cats gets cystitis and our vet said No,More.Biscuits

If they disagree with him, I simply wouldn't use them, even as a treat. They're quite concentrated and it sounds as if his stomach can't take them for some reason/because of some ingredient.

Possibly, I think they've got milk proteins AND cereal in them. Neither of which is normally part of a weaned cats diet.

I use chew sticks instead. We call them swallows though because he eats them so quickly while holding your hand still with his claws out just enough to hurt you but not draw blood.

Thanks, I'll give them to someone whose cat has no problem eating them. It's too much hassle to clean up sick at 6.30 in the morning. Especially when I've run out of kitchen roll. Smile

Dreamies are banned in my house. One of the cats is always sick after them and it's always a neon colour that stains the carpet.

Seniorboy isn't interested in them which I've put down to his minimal tooth complement. They're one of those items where it's not wise to Google though - some of the stories about their ingredients' list are ......less than complimentary. They also seem pretty high on grain content which might not be good for some cats.

All treats banned in our house due to cat having an unknown allergy. I wondered if it was the dreamies too.

My cat was fine eating Dreamies but I think they changed the recipe and since then she vomits shortly after eating around 5 squares. She'll vomit her food so if you do give your cat these 'treats' then make sure you do it when they have an empty stomach. Ideally if your cat shows a disagreement then just don't buy them anymore. I no longer give my cat Dreamies.

Seniorboy has a deep love of Vet's Kitchen Treats which seem more laudable than Dreamies. As thy're hard - and he has very few teeth - I have no idea how he eats them but eat them he does. (He has 7 for supper - I count them.) Might be worth trying for your girl.

Mine would probably leave home if I withdrew their Dreamies. Or kill me in my sleep.

You can get pieces of dried chicken, I think they're made by Cosma, from Zooplus. Sort of like beef jerky for cats.
