Vomiting and Diarrhea

Concerned that your cat's food is causing digestive problems? A number of other factors could be to blame.

One of the most common eating-related concerns cat owners have is chronic vomiting and diarrhea, which may or may not have anything to do with your cat’s diet, says Daniel Carey, DVM, of The Iams Co., Dayton, Ohio. There are a number of reasons for these symptoms: inflammatory bowel disease, cancer, or liver or kidney problems. Eliminate these possibilities and any other health concerns with your veterinarian before suspecting food.

“If you’re feeding good-quality, digestible food, it’s unlikely that the food is the culprit,” Dr. Carey says.
