I adopted Peanut in July of this year and she's now 4 months old. Ever since bringing her home, she's thrown up once or twice daily. She has gone 1 or 2 days without doing it, but not often.
She's the runt of the litter and wasn't well taken care of or watched at the rescue center when I adopted her. She just recently had a tapeworm and intestinal parasites, which I treated and are now gone (confirmed by my vet) but she's still throwing up. Not as much in terms of volume but still doing it.
She's seen my vet twice so far and they are kind of baffled at what this could be. Granted, I have not yet done blood work or x-rays because we all thought the tapeworm was to blame. I'm bringing her in for blood work this Saturday - one step at a time. I'm still trying to recover financially from having to put my 5-year-old Buddy to sleep. His emergency visits and medicines cost me over $2000.
Has anyone experienced this with a kitten? At first, she would eat WAY too fast and then throw up. She starting to slow down but now she throws up in the middle of the night. She's very active, has never had a fever, she's pooping and peeing fine, and her vet exams have been fine.
I've had her on every food that's out there, including the pricey prescription food from the vet and none of it's made a difference. She is gaining weight, however.
The vet had me try a 1/4 10mg tablet of Pepcid and that didn't seem to work either. Someone also suggested I give her a few licks of plain yogurt to get some digestive enzymes in her to aid in the digestion because they thought that might be the issue.
I'm sure I'll know more when they do blood work but just figured I'd ask if anyone's experienced this before. Having had to put my kitten Boo to sleep when she was 3 months old and recently Buddy, I'm just fearful of what's wrong with her.
