I’m sorry to hear about your cat’s diagnosis.You might try reducing the amount of Imodium you give her. Or even ask your vet if there is an alternative to the Imodium. It has been suggested that Imodium can affect gut motility which may be the cause for the vomiting. I would also avoid Kaopectate and Pepto Bismol, in her case. Here are some things you might try, but run them by your vet first:
• Feed her a highly digestible, low-fat diet (often called a “bland diet”) such as:
— Boiled chicken breast (boneless, skinless, no seasonings) and boiled white rice (no seasonings) — mix in a 1:1 ratio and feed in small, frequent meals throughout the day. * You can also replace the chicken breast with cottage cheese or boiled low-fat ground turkey or beef.
— A prescription low-fat, highly digestible diet available from your veterinarian — for example, Royal Canin Digestive Low Fat, Hills I/D, Purina EN, or others.
• If she’s not drinking very well, you can add water and a little bit of (low sodium) chicken broth, or some of the water from the rice boiling process, to any of the above diets to increase moisture content of the diet.
• Add probiotics to her food. You can try regular, unflavored, probiotic-rich yogurt, or you can pick up a probiotic like Purina’s FortiFlora, Nutramax’s Proviable, or Iams’ Prostora Max. Or even capsules of acidophilus that you can pull apart and sprinkle on her food. These add good bacteria back into her gut.
Good luck to you both!
I have been told my cat has chronic bowel disease, I have had her 15 years, she has had uncontrollable diarrhea for a while now, I took her to the vet, they told me to buy some from the pharmacy so I have been giving her that each day in her food, the diarrhea has stopped but now she is throwing up, what should I do.
