Nursing home cat vomiting, losing weight
Hi all. I need some advice about one of the cats that I help take care of at work.
We have two girls, who are almost 7 years old. One or both of them have vomited pretty regularly (about once a week) for the 18 months or so that I've known them. In the past it's seemed to be related to people giving them too many snacks, and it was mostly Twinkle, the beggar of the two, who would be seen vomiting.
For the last couple of weeks, we've been seeing vomit every day, sometimes more than once a day. I know some of that's still Twink, but my co-workers say they've been catching Molly vomitting now, and she seems a little thinner.
They were switched to Purina Chef's Blend food a couple of months ago (I'm not sure what they were on before, but I can find out if it's important), and Molly has been begging for treats more, recently. So has Twinkle, actually; they may not like the new food much. They have always been free-fed their dry food.
At any rate, something needs to be done. We'd rather not take the girls to the vet if this is something we can deal with on our own, but there's no way that Molly vomitting daily can be a good thing.
Thanks in advance,
