I have two indoor cats. Charlie is 2 yrs. old and Ellie is 1 yrs. old. I had Charlie for about a year, before adopting a second cat to give him company while I am at work. They get along really well. My problem is during feeding time. I feed them twice a day, in the morning and again at supper time. In the morning they get dry food and for supper they get wet food. Charlie will vomit right after eating his wet food meal. For variety, I give them a different flavor of wet food everyday, but Charlie will give me the same result. He vomits on average twice a week. I’ve taken him to the vet, had blood work done and nothing was found. For about 4 months he had the same feeding routine with no vomiting at all. Only recently, has the problem started again. For a mini experiment, I gave them both dry food only for both meals. He never vomited his food for those days. Should I be giving him dry food only? What is causing him to vomit?
I’m so frustrated, please help.
I have a cat that is diabetic; do you have diabetic cats in your place? What special diet do they get, commercial or do you prepare your own. If you make your own will you share it, and if you use a commercial product which brand do you recommend?

Enter your question here I have several male and female adult cats and 2 kittens. With so many food choices on the market, in your opinion which brand is the most nutritional for adult cats, and which brand is most nutritional for young cats? What brand of food is fed to the fortunate cats at DELTA RESCUE? The animals all look so healthy and beautiful, I’d love to know what they are fed on a daily basis.
Thank you very much!
enter your question here My lab has started eating the red berries of the rowan trees in the back garden. The wife has seen him jumping up to try and get these berries of the high branches. He has not been sick as of yet but I am wondering if this is bad for him,although it smells bad when he passes gas. I am also wondering why he has started doing this even though he has lived here for 3 years now and not bothered with them before.
I have an adult male cat. He has always eaten dry food with little problems, and with a healthy appetite. About a year ago, after he devors his food, he goes into the house and vomits it back up. We started mixing soft in with his dry, and this seemed to help at first, but he still does it. Any thought on this? Thanks.
Enter your question here Our dog is 14 years old and she passes gas quite often that will drive you out of the room. She now is fed 1/2 can of dog food mixed with dry food. She is a medium size dog, part lab and part unknown.
Monty(13)was operated for bladder stones in 06. The vet told me to feed him MediCall(Royal Canin)UrinarySO. I always put chicken breasts on his food to make it more appetizing. I hate giving him this horrible dog food…could I make my own food & still be assured his stones would not come back. Thanks Rosemary
I have a 5-month-old kitten, Maggie. Since I got her 2 months ago, I have fed her Purina Kitten Food. She is growing quite a bit, but is very thin. Am I feeding her the wrong food? Will canned food help her put on more weight? I don’t quite know whether I should be feeding her dry or canned food. Which do you recommend?
I have an 8 1/2 year old Dobie. She is quite healthy. However, she has begun to search out and eat potting soil in my potted plants. My vet was unsure why. Is she missing something in her diet?? Diet= proplan chicken and rice
roasted pieces of chicken
on that…2x a day.
Treats: milk bone Costco brand
chicken dental chews.
She is not on any meds. This happens generally after eating. It is not daily but often enough that I am comcerned.Thank you very much.
One of my cats has very loose stools almost daily.
She eats both canned and dry food. She has access to grass, but I don’t see her eating it. She is about 15 and has always been skinny (rescued about 2 years ago); she seems healthy and is active and loving, though she doesn’t like some of my other cats.
