      Well, I thought things were settling down but he is regurgitating his food again since yesterday. I am at a loss and don’t know what to do. He does this with the hypoallergenic hydrolyzed protein food and the w/d prescription food. I’ve called and left messages with the vet but I don’t get a call back till sometimes the next day. I usually am the one that has to call back. I told them I wanted to try wet food but they don’t give me an answer. He ate a little chicken baby food Wednesday, about 1 tsp, at 10:50a, 2:03p & 4:55p and maybe kept that down. Today he turned he didn’t want it but ate the 12 pieces of w/d that came back up 5 minutes later.
       
      Does anyone have any suggestions what I could try that won’t upset his stomach? I even gave him a 1/4 famotidine at 8:25a this morning after he threw up the water he drank. Does anyone have the link to the pancreatitis group, I can’t find the email that someone sent me with it. I don’t even know if the atenolol I am giving him could be causing the problem. I am truly at a loss.

        Dear Mirsades,
        I'm sorry...you're going to have to get him to a specialist. Tomorrow, tonight? Asap. At least get an xray. This is serious, and you have every right to be frightened. Inevitable fatty liver disease is worth concern also, if he can't keep food down. But his reaction to trying to eat tells me and I think you too, that something else is the matter. Since your regular vet has been so unresponsive, you need to seek more reliable help. Can you get him to the ER tonight? Do you have a cardio specialist for him? If so, can you put in an emergency call to the cardio vet also?
        Please stay in touch.

         Marianna

        He is on 6.25mg atenolol twice a day and this morning I gave him 1/4 tab of famotidine. He just keeps vomiting right after he eats and he’s hungry. I can’t stand it, I feel so bad. He’s only had about 1 tsp. chicken baby food at 4:55p last night (Wed.) and 1 tsp chicken baby food at 10:10a this morning (Thurs.) that stayed down. That’s not much of anything. If I can’t get more food in him I’m afraid he’s gonna start getting fatty liver disease. I tried putting a teaspoon of fancy feast in the same bowl with the chicken baby food  at 3:00p today and he ate it but it came right back up. I honestly don’t know what to do. It is making me pretty sick too with the bottom half of me not working right, can’t get much sleep and my heart is acting up. I’m getting scared that I might end up in the hospital.

        Mirsades,
        Please switch to Wellness 99.9% protein wet canned food go with ''all chicken'' or ''all turkey'' to start. If he needs to put weight on get Wellness ''CORE" it's the same, but is higher in calorie. I fed this to my senior rescue heart/kidney/thyroid problem cat for his problems which included oral cancer. His kidney levels actually went back to the 'normal' range after just 2 months of feeding this.
        What meds is he on?

Does anyone have any suggestions? I don’t know if pepcid would help and when to give it, if the atenolol is causing the problem or ???? I know that he can’t be getting any nourishment out of his food if it can’t even stay in him for more than 5 minutes!! The middle of the day went ok but I have to feed him tiny amounts 1 teaspoon or 1 tablespoon every 1/2 hour or hour. This is very draining and I don’t know how long I can keep it up.

            Re: [FH] Romeeoh Vomiting Again Mirsades, Cerenia( maropitant)  is a drug that is used a lot for cats with CRF in particular to stop vomiting. Most vets have it. It is available at most vets as an injectable which may work best for Romeeoh, but is also available in pillform, below is th dosing recommendation  from the official Drugs .com site
             Pepcid which was mentioned earlier, does not seem to be indicated. Typical symptoms of too much tummy acid where Pepcid helps is clear frothy liquid vomiting, not food, esp. in the mornings.

            <*** Metoclopramide is a less effective central antiemetic drug in cats than in dogs because serotonin receptors, rather than dopaminergic receptors, predominate in the CTZ of cats. For vomiting in cats, I generally usually use metoclopramide only if a promotility effect is desired. Chlorpromazine, dolasetron, ondansetron, or maropitant ( Cerenia) should be used as a first or second choice to control acute frequent vomiting in cats. Parvovirus can cause gastric hypomotility and therefore the promotility effects of metoclopramide may prove beneficial. However, maropitant, dolasetron, or ondansetron are likely to be more effective than metoclopramide.>

            This does not address the cause of the vomiting, but at least it would stop it.  Have you tried boiling white rice for a long time and feeding the thickened rice water with an eyedropper or 3cc syringe just for now to soothe the irritated stomach linings, (or inflammation that may be going on)? In a few hours you can see a vet to get the cerenia. Here is the information, it is now FDA approved as injection for cats as well, but the pills are still prescribed ‘off label’ and widely used.

            <What should I avoid when giving my pet Cerenia?
            Consult your veterinarian before using Cerenia with cardiac, anticonvulsant and behavioral medications as well as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) and so on

            From : http://www.drugs.com/vet/cerenia-injectable-solution.html
            CATS:
            The pharmacokinetic profile of maropitant when administered as a single subcutaneous dose of 1 mg/kg body weight to 8 cats was characterized by a mean (range) maximum concentration (Cmax) in plasma of approximately 165 (108-332) ng/mL. Cmax was achieved on average 0.32 (0.25-0.5) hours post-dosing (Tmax). Peak concentrations were followed by a decline in systemic exposure with a mean apparent elimination half-life (t1/2) of 16.8 (10.3-32.8) hours and mean area under the curve (AUC0-∞) of 3490 (1440-6760) hr*ng/mL.

            Hope this helps and that you both get some releif by morning.

                  I have a "healthy" cat who has (for the 10 years I have had her) would vomit when eating if she was "hungry" (or in her mind starving to death).  In the early days it was dry food and she would bolt it without chewing, it was barely damp and before you could get something to clean it up she would start to re-eat it!  Moving to better quality dry food helped.  Then as I got smart getting the cats on meat-based canned food instead of dry.  But still when there is a long time with an empty bowl she will eat too fast.  So the best solution has been letting her graze on the can food all day/night and I have had to compromise a bit on brand as the cat must eat and they don’t really care how good the food is for them.  Basically I don’t let her get "hungry" any more and save for occasional  hairball, no vomiting!

Food is essential, apart from the energy it takes to retch. if you have no access to a vet today to get the injection, get a script phoned in, so you can stop this terrible drain on your kitty's system. The body will start consuming its own muscle protein to raise the necessary fuel to keep the vital organs going. That muscle is very hard to build back in a heart patient, and the muscle consumption incl. the heartmuscle.  This is urgent.  I would not delay. You can worry about the day pause between the next courses of Cerenia later.
                    Hope this helps.

                    I have some Cerenia here from when he took 1 course of it (4 days) from 9/24 to 9/27. He didn’t seem to regurgitate those days but as soon as I stopped, the regurgitating resumed and you can only use it for 4 days. He eats fine after this first morning bout so I don’t think his stomach is irritated or wouldn’t he regurg/vomit after every meal?

                    Mirsades, Cerenia( maropitant)  is a drug that is used a lot for cats with CRF in particular to stop vomiting. Most vets have it. It is available at most vets as an injectable which may work best for Romeeoh, but is also available in pillform, below is th dosing recommendation  from the official Drugs .com site
                    Pepcid which was mentioned earlier, does not seem to be indicated. Typical symptoms of too much tummy acid where Pepcid helps is clear frothy liquid vomiting, not food, esp. in the mornings.

                    <*** Metoclopramide is a less effective central antiemetic drug in cats than in dogs because serotonin receptors, rather than dopaminergic receptors, predominate in the CTZ of cats. For vomiting in cats, I generally usually use metoclopramide only if a promotility effect is desired. Chlorpromazine, dolasetron, ondansetron, or maropitant ( Cerenia) should be used as a first or second choice to control acute frequent vomiting in cats. Parvovirus can cause gastric hypomotility and therefore the promotility effects of metoclopramide may prove beneficial. However, maropitant, dolasetron, or ondansetron are likely to be more effective than metoclopramide.>

                    This does not address the cause of the vomiting, but at least it would stop it.  Have you tried boiling white rice for a long time and feeding the thickened rice water with an eyedropper or 3cc syringe just for now to soothe the irritated stomach linings, (or inflammation that may be going on)? In a few hours you can see a vet to get the cerenia. Here is the information, it is now FDA approved as injection for cats as well, but the pills are still prescribed ‘off label’ and widely used.

                    <What should I avoid when giving my pet Cerenia?
                    Consult your veterinarian before using Cerenia with cardiac, anticonvulsant and behavioral medications as well as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) and so on

                    From : http://www.drugs.com/vet/cerenia-injectable-solution.html
                    CATS:
                    The pharmacokinetic profile of maropitant when administered as a single subcutaneous dose of 1 mg/kg body weight to 8 cats was characterized by a mean (range) maximum concentration (Cmax) in plasma of approximately 165 (108-332) ng/mL. Cmax was achieved on average 0.32 (0.25-0.5) hours post-dosing (Tmax). Peak concentrations were followed by a decline in systemic exposure with a mean apparent elimination half-life (t1/2) of 16.8 (10.3-32.8) hours and mean area under the curve (AUC0-∞) of 3490 (1440-6760) hr*ng/mL.

                    Hope this helps and that you both get some releif by morning.

                    Well....Fed Romeeoh tonight and he regurgitated his food. This makes 3 times today. He usually only does this in the morning. I’m at a loss now what to do and what food to try. Does anyone have any suggestions? I don’t know if pepcid would help and when to give it, if the atenolol is causing the problem or ???? I know that he can’t be getting any nourishment out of his food if it can’t even stay in him for more than 5 minutes!! The middle of the day went ok but I have to feed him tiny amounts 1 teaspoon or 1 tablespoon every 1/2 hour or hour. This is very draining and I don’t know how long I can keep it up.

                      Mirsades,
                       
                      Now I am mostly feeding friskies and fancy feasy, only the pates,  they don’t like shreds or chunks which is go it avoids the glutens etc.  My 2 girls are very picky eaters and we ended up here as they started eating better while my Ragdoll was sick (hcm & liver dx) in fact the one got a little chubby.
                       
                      I had been feeding mostly Wellness (grain free) with some By Nature 95% meat  and other grain-free meat canned food they were not to thrilled with that were good for them and not cheap (to be throwing out so much). 
                       
                      Just some thoughts I had of what popped to mind reading the posts.  I wonder if 1) you can feed him enough small amounts forcing him to eat slowly (sit there with him and drop a tiny small cat size  mouthful into the bowl let him eat that than another one) till you get him full that you could leave food out.  to begin with I would be curious if taking his food and feeding it to him slowly would keep it down.  It just strikes me that since he has an appetite not like nausea normally in cats (usually begging them to eat).  2) the food,  is there something he is allergic to maybe or sensitive to? cat can become sensitive to even chicken and turkey hence the vension &rabbit foods. Or maybe grains or glutens?  A  higher quality food maybe more filling to him and may slow down his consumption rate (I have read some on on another group refer to Fancy Feast as kitty crack, it does work wonders on the picky cat, so it might go to the other extreme on a piggy cat.

                      Hi Debbie,
                       
                      What kind of canned food did you use. I am feeding fancy feast and was going today to try the bigger cans of friskies 5.5oz. I think if I left wet food out, he would eat everything in the bowl and for sure probably throw it back up. That’s why I was considering dry again, even tho I would find it practically whole like you did.

                      I have a "healthy" cat who has (for the 10 years I have had her) would vomit when eating if she was "hungry" (or in her mind starving to death).  In the early days it was dry food and she would bolt it without chewing, it was barely damp and before you could get something to clean it up she would start to re-eat it!  Moving to better quality dry food helped.  Then as I got smart getting the cats on meat-based canned food instead of dry.  But still when there is a long time with an empty bowl she will eat too fast.  So the best solution has been letting her graze on the can food all day/night and I have had to compromise a bit on brand as the cat must eat and they don’t really care how good the food is for them.  Basically I don’t let her get "hungry" any more and save for occasional  hairball, no vomiting!
