Need help with cat problem
Our cat is about 12 years old. He's had alot of throwing-up-fur-ball issues in the past several years. I bought some high-priced anti-fur-ball food from the vet for him recently, and mixed it with high-priced-weight-loss food. He continued to yark (throw up). Now I'm giving him almost all anti-fur-ball food and he's thrown up several times a day in the past 3 days.
Tonight, he projectile yarked a ton of bile-type stuff.
Now I'm getting worried its more than just a fur ball problem.
I've taken up his food dish, so he won't eat tonight. He does still want to eat.
What else should I do? Do you think this warrants a visit to the vet? the vet has always taken all this throwing up fairly non-nonchalantly. I bought some of that stuff you put on their paw, and they lick it off. I think its high in mineral oil and molasses, and that doesn't help much either.
What should I do?
I have a doctor's appointment in the morning, but if you think this is serious, I'll cancel and take the cat to the vet.
Is all this throwing up normal? Is the projectile vomiting normal? Is it possible there is a huge furball in his stomach that needs to be removed??
