Cats with sensitive stomachs

Sunday, December 25, 2011
posted by Jim Murphy

It’s called inflammatory bowel disease, or irritable bowel syndrome but it’s just plain stomach trouble.¬† This is not a happy time for a cat with a sensitive stomach or for the people who care for the cat. Chronic vomiting and diarrhea¬† can have a lot of different causes.¬† If any of these symptoms are occurring, get your cat to the vet for a diagnosis. Your vet might recommend a change of diet. If your cat is overly sensitive to any kind of protein, many pet companies are aware of this and offer specially formulated diets that contain easy to digest rice and egg protein. Sensitive stomach is not at all uncommon with cats, and fortunately, it’s almost always manageable.

Remember, your pets count!
