My cat is losing weight and throwing up her food, but she is healthy otherwise...?
I got my cat over a year ago from a rescue place, and she was always a little more on the ''dopey'' side, slept more than my other cats - I then took her to my vet who discovered she had severe gingivitis and some rotten teeth - he removed a couple of her teeth, she went on antibiotics and over the past few months it was like she was a totally new and improved cat.
I thought about Hyperthiroid but no other signs, such as heavy breathing and no such thing as loss in appetite - also her throwing up is more like a quick regurgitation of food, it hasnt even been digested yet. Tho it is worth having her tested for this.
Normally the rule is that if they are puking every week, then they need to go to the vet to be evaluated. Having the doctor pull a little blood sample and running a full profile would probably be beneficial. Chronic vomiting in cats can be caused by a lot of things unfortunately such as pancreatic, IBD, lymphoma, foreign bodies, or food allergies to name a few. Are you only feeding a raw diet? It might be possible that she is lacking something in her diet or the raw meats arent settling well. I would just take her in and discuss it with your vet. One of my cats had chronic vomiting and ended up having IBD, another one couldnt handle the corn that was in most foods. Hope that helps!
If she's throwing up like you say, she's eating too quickly. But the weight loss is a definite concern. Check to see if her gums are lighter in color because she could be anemic if she's lost a lot of weight, but your best bet as someone else said is to get her to the vet and have them do a blood panel to see what is actually going on.
Have you had your cat tested for hyperthyroid conditions? Often, cats with hyperthyroid conditions will vomit more often and will lose weight. Some signs that she may have an issue such as this is heavy breathing, weight loss, and sometimes loss of appetite. Simple blood tests can confirm this. Good luck!
The losing weight is a sign that something is wrong and needs to be done. Hyperthyroid, ibs, diabetes are all common in cats but are easily treatable. If it was just throwing up or an upset stomach, I could give you some advice but you really need a full blood work done to find out what is wong Best of luck
I'd take your kitty into the vet and see what the vet has to say. seriously. even if otherwise she looks healthy to you and she was tested for problems 3 months ago. the vet is specially trained to figure out what's wrong.
at what age was she tested for feline leukemia and AIDS? if it was only in kittenhood, you need to re-test her once she is at least 6 mo old as maternal antibiodies can interfere with accurate test results.
Ohoooo, eating disorder!!!
Is she getting too skinny or is she a fat cat that's losing weight? If she's too skinny, she could be reacting to her food.
