Great. Please give me just a minute to review what you have provided already. I’ll have a few more questions. While I’m doing that, I need to know if your cat is strictly indoors and whether there are other pets in the home. I seem to ask everyone those two questions.
The two are same age? Both males? Neutered?
How do you feed the wet and dry food. Iams wet kitten 3 pouches given when? And the dry food, how is that fed?
Which variety/flavor of wet food? When during the day does he vomit? How long has this been going on?
How long have you had the bag of dry food? Are there plants in the home?
So he has only been getting dry food for 3 days? Is that correct? Wet only before that? Always Iams kitten chicken in gravy?
You added dry food to the wet to see if that would stop the vomiting? And it did not, correct?
When he vomits at night, what is in it? And the female has no problems?
Have you tried discontinuing the wet food? Feed only chicken baby food for 3-5 days. After the 3-5 days, if no vomiting, then add a little dry in a dish on the side. More as a treat than a primary diet. If the vomiting stops on the baby food. Restart the Iams pouches. If it resumes, you have your answer.
Do appreciate that pet food manufacturers change the composition and ingredients of their foods based on what is available on the market. The pouches may have a coloring or additive that is not sitting well with the cats.
Try the chicken baby food trial and see if you notice a difference. It is pure chicken, no additives.
Vomiting daily can have significant health consequences. It is not normal for cats to vomit frequently, hair or no hair.
