It’s not that cats’ stomachs are sensitive per se. It’s that the bacteria population in their intestines naturally adapts to their diet, and if you introduce a new food they’re not ready for, it will usually result in diarrhea. This is only really a problem with pets that eat the same food at every meal, and it can be solved by slowly changing their diet to ...

I'm not an expert, but having cats for many years, gives me some ideas you could try out: Put small portions on her plate; Don't leave the plate for a long time; Vary the place where you feed her, without putting her in front of her plate. Let her discover the food somewhere she wouldn't expect. Maybe serving it on something lese that is not her plate. Hope ...

It's hard to know for sure, because it seems unlikely anyone's taken a formal survey on the subject, but I suspect that while some owners certainly do give their cats variety, that a reasonably large percentage really do feed their cat the same food unless they are forced to change it, usually to address a new health problem. The reason why I think this is ...

Carbohydrates Corn, Potato Starch, ...

In this case, it ended up not being a problem. After a couple of weeks, he's now grown to the point of being able to swallow the pellets easily.

Yes, it's normal. Search "cat vomit food" and you'll find vets suggesting 1-3 cat upchucks a month is normal, but to only worry if it's twice a day for several days in a row, possibly with blood. My cats seem to barf up some dry food at least weekly, and have been in fine health for decades (combined). It wasn't the food, since the other 6 days of ...

C.Koca is spot on with expanding food. Dry food with a high grain content expands more that food with a high meat content, so switching brands might help. Please keep in mind that grain content is proven to increase the risk of urinary tract diseases in cats and that male cats are much more prone to those stones than females, so switching food might be a ...

It is not normal, although it also doesn't seem alarming. Cats usually vomit furballs. If you only see dry food, it is not the usual vomit. The usual cause is cats eating too much dry food and then drinking water. Dry food expands with water and might be disturbing their stomach. This theory has more credibility since the puzzle feeder helped it. My ...

Leave in the Bones. My dogs will gobble down any meat I give them. Cooked or uncooked. Seasoned or unseasoned. My dogs like eating bits of dead animal. I will presume you are feeding raw meat as that is preferable for dogs. In that case leave in the bones. This should make the food more recognisable as a chunk of dead animal, and appeal more to your dog's ...
