Re: Cat Throwing Up Before Feeding
Just an update. Baxter had a few more episodes of throwing up (brown liquid) just before feeding. We noticed he was not drinking much water and urinated on the bathroom mat twice. It's odd, he throws up several hours after feeding. We switched him to a mostly wet diet to help with the water issue and his weight (20 pds). Assuming he has a hairball caught, this should help him to pass it. He didn't throw up for a full day and when he did it was the color/consistency of the wet food (so at least it isn't blood in the vomit). Again, several hours after he first ate.
We took him to the vet this morning to have him checked out. Initial test shows that he has crystals in his urine, most likely from all the dry food and little water intake. The vet it recommending a "WD diet". The vet didn't have an answer for the voracious appetite, but thought he may have diabetes or fatty liver (they're also running blood tests).
Not sure what to do at this point, we've been told to get his weight down in the past, but Baxter simply won't have it. He wants to eat and if doesn't get food he goes nuts (pushes over lamps, jumps up on tables/counters, runs around, howls, throws up, etc). Not sure how to control that...Albert on the other hand seems to just react to Baxter. Baxter has been gone all day and Albert has only touched his food when he is hungry and at the appropriate times. Albert has always been easier from a weight management perspective.
Any thoughts We'll know more tomorrow when the blood and urine tests are complete.
