Question from Rebecca Hamlin


Maine Coon, age 7 years

About every 5 weeks, my cat Zoey, throws up for several days immediately after she eats. Then several weeks will pass before she throws up again. She doesn’t seem to eat too quickly and there usually is no sign of a hairball in the vomit. I have tried various premium foods and the results are the same. She is overweight, according to my vet, and right now I am measuring her portions and serving her cat food for weight management. She is always hungry, whether or not she is in the throwing up stage. She is not losing any weight since I started the weight management food. Also, do you have any suggestions on a product to remove vomit stains from the carpet. If I am close by, and hear her getting ready to throw up, I am right there and clean up the mess immediately, but there is always a reddish stain that just won’t come up completely no matter how quickly I attend to it.

Our Vet Says:

Dear Madam,

Change in food can be the reason for her throwing up. The change in food must be done step by step (food must be reduced gradually)

I have 12 yr. old Male Black Lab that weighs 133 LB & was just diagnosed with heart worms. Are there any other options for him other than the Immiticide injections? I�m worried about this option because of the risk with his age. A couple veterinarians have told me to treat with heartgard for 12 months & may get negative test results in that time if I was needing a more affordable & safer option? Only other problem, Jordan has arthritis in his hip & currently takes 2 Rovera 100 mg. tablets dai...?
