I have an 11 year old Calico and she started vomiting her food one day this week. The next day she vomited what looked like foam and then stopped eating. She's always been a big eater so I took her to the vet. that day. They did an exam and blood work which came back normal. They gave me the Hill's AD and I've been feeding her with a syringe. She went in yesterday for a B-12 Complex shot, IV drip and anti-biotic. When I got her home she went pee pee and had a bowel movement. She went to her food bowel and acts like she wants to eat but doesn't. I did get her to drink some juice from Tuna. She's going back for more IV tomorrow and then Monday to the Internal Emergency Center we have near us. I've been crying for two days as she's just the best cat I've ever had. She's my little purr buddy. Sorry for the long message. Has anyone ever had this problem with their cat and the same symptoms? Thanks, Paula

Hi this is a follow-up to what I just wrote. I've tried as many types of meats as I can and also tried baby food and that doesn't work. My e-mail address is PMWB9058@AOL.COM. Any advice and/or help would be appreciated. Thanks..

Has your cat gotten any shots/vaccations within the last month? What is his temperature?
I have two, 5 months old kittens, and 1 week after the male got his shots he was very sick, throwing up, 105 fever, wouldnt eat or drink. I got an antibotic and had to feed him with a Syringe every 2 hours. Turns out he is allergic to his vaccations.....

Thank you so much for responding. She hasn't had her annual shots yet. Actually she was due for them after the 13th of Nov. She's started eating a bit more on her own but still not up to speed. I'm going to call the vet in a little while and I think he wants us to bring her in for another IV drip. There is a very good internal medicine center for animals near us so I think he's going to try and get her in on an Emer. basis tomorrow. She's acting kinda normal, doing her usual things and still sleeping with us at night. She's usually a bigger talker (meowing that is) but she hasn't been this week. Thank you again. Paula

Dear CLW,
Her Temp. was normal. It was taken twice both on seperate days. They gave her an anti-biotic as precaution. Something that she's taken before. Thanks, Paula

Is she an inside or outside cat? Sometimes outside cats can suffer internal trauma from a fall or something.

The first thing that came to my mind was a blockage, but I'm sure the vet checked for that.

How was her bowel movement? Formed or soft? Was there any blood or mucous in it?

Thank you so much for replying. She's an indoor cat. Actually the vet didn't check for a blockage but suspected it and that would have been the next step. She had a soft bowel movement friday night. She's had diarrhea since Sat. morning and we suspect that may be due to the soft food, liquids and possibly the anti-biotic. I was very pleased today when she took a very strong interest in her food and started eating her dry food again and kept eating eat. She then started getting more active and more like her old self. Now she's eating all foods and drinking. I'm happy to say this and don't want to jinx it so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I'm going to be up all night monitoring her if she doesn't stay in bed with us. Right now she's curled in her bed by the fire and sleeping sound. Thanks for all the help and support from everyone. I'm hoping she'll keep this up. Sorry for the long message. Take care. Paula

Glad to hear she is doing better. When my cat started vomitting and had some blood in her poop I took her in and the vet suspected a blockage at first but turns out she has Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome. I hope your cat keeps doing well.

I spoke to soon about her eating and thinking it was a good sign. She did fine until I gave her dose of anti-biotic tonight and 20 minutes later she threw up some of what she had eaten earlier. There was no blood in it so I guess that's good. She's still having bowel movements too. I will call the Dr. in the am and give him the update and see what route he's going to take with her. How did they find the inflammatory Bowel Syndrome and is it treatable? I hope it's some that's treatable and not fatal. Now I'm back to really worrying again. Thanks for everyone's help, support and input. Take care. Paula

The last episode could be the antibiotic upsetting her tummy. Should it be taken with a full stomach? Or on an empty stomach? Perhaps a different antibiotic might be in order.

Let us know what your vet says!

My 12-y.o. just finished a 10-day course of antibiotics, at the end of which she stopped eating and threw up everything she did eat. The vet told us to give her plain yogurt to replenish the "good" bacteria in her stomach, which the antibiotics will kill off. This seems to be helping, although I'm still not relaxing yet. Apparently yogurt is very good for settling stomachs and can help in Irritable Bowel syndrome. Read the article
