Hoping some of you experts out there can help me. I have a 7 year old inside cat who is having difficulty keeping food down.
She is throwing up right after eating on a daily basis. It seems it's soon after she eats. She now starts "talking" right before she throws up as well, sounds like she is hurting.
She only eats dry food, no particular brand matters. This can't be normal, any suggestions what it could be without having to see a vet (low on finances right now)
By the way, it's not a hairball situation, little if no hair in the "Pile".
Thanks so much for any input

Sounds like she has a very sensitive stomach. Try Royal Canin Speciall 33. This has worked wonders for cats that throw up constantly. Sounds like she might need some wet food also for the moisture. If she's throwing up a lot, she's losing a lot of moisture which could lead to Urinary Tract problems. First, do the Royal Canin and then add some canned food after like Wellness or Active Life.

Could she be eating too fast?
Could also be just a very sensitive stomache as BengalLover said.

Where do I find this speciality food, like at a Petsmart store or do I have to get it through the vet?
She does it fast, she tries to get her fill before cat #2 comes by. Although she occassionally threw up before we even got the second cat.
Well, I really appreciate your insight and I will give that a try as well as adding the wet food as well.

Like nern said, eating too fast sounds like part of it. But if it was an existing problem, change the food. Is she throwing up in a tube of undigested food? Always remember to transition for about a week when switching food. The Special 33 tends to be higher in fat, so watch your cat's weight and portion the food. Also, try separating them while eating. This can be the hardest thing to do with cats. I think PetsMart carries it now, although they don't know anything about nutrition, so don't bother asking them. I would go to a smaller natural pet food store. Most places are going to carry it. It's a purple and white bag. Good luck!

Petco also carries it and Pet Supplies Plus (if you have one in your area).
There is a store locator on their website if you want to see what stores in your area carry it (click on "Retailer Search" at the left of the page): http://www.royalcanin.us/

I was always told that cats (some more than others) throw up a lot. One of our cats does not, but the other throws up after she eats. Not every day, and some weeks more than others, but rather consistently on the whole.

She is perfectly healthy and if anything is slightly overweight.

Cats do have a natural tendency to throw up, but the proper food can keep it at a minimum. They don't have to throw up everyday. It could be that the cat isn't digesting their food or that they need a little help. Wheat grass also helps. It doesn't have the barbs that normal grass does and it has the natural enzymes to aid in digestion. People that have tried the Royal Canin Special 33 have raved over it and it has even saved a few lives.

Also, neither one of my cats has ever thrown up and I think it is due to a very proper diet.
