Hi Teodora

Is Bertie up to date with vaccines, flea and wormer?

Thank you. And have you noticed any changes to his bowel movements? (diarrhoea)

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
I’m not sure he usually goes outside but he does have wee in the bath

Thank you. Has he been checked by any vets since January for sickness?

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
No he hasn’t

He went missing for a couple of months. Just after being sick for the 1st Time

I understand. And are you sure he properly vomits (gastric content), rather than bringing furballs up?

I think since January I only seen him throw up fur ball once

I see. Based on what you're describing I would suggest we are dealing with some sort of gastric problem. They can be very frustrating to investigate and sometimes hard to manage, but my best recommendation would be for Bertie to be seen for a hands-on examination by your local vet sometimes next week. Please give them a call and book a routine appointment for "intermittent sickness".

Ok will do

Thank you for your help

Normally there are a few steps vets take to investigate this. Causes can be multiple, from worms to sensitive tummy (Inflammatory Bowel Disease?). It all depends on a series of tests that the vets will perform.

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
Could it be the food I give him?

You are more than welcome. It can be a very frustrating road (speaking from my own experience as I went down that road with one of my cats), and after all tests and investigations, they might just require a special diet (mine "calmed down" on dry Hills i/d). But many other things need to be excluded prior to this (parasites, liver issues, etc)

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
Ok. I will book an appointment as soon as possible

Yes, sometimes a change in diet is beneficial. You could try a "bland diet" (like homemade boiled chicken and boiled rice) or special made diets (Hills i/d, Royal Canine sensitivity, etc)

Perfect. Sounds like a good plan. I hope they find nothing serious and I wish Bertie a speedy recovery.
