my cat gizmo hasnt been able to keep food down all day. If he doesnt eat he is fine. Can I give him chicken broth or what should i do to make his belly feel better?

You can try a little bit of boiled chicken and rice--that's the bland diet that my vet usually recommends. Is he throwing up undigested food? Did this just start today or has it happened before? Is he using the litterbox (peeing and pooping) normally?

Poor Gizmo. His tummy needs a rest, allow him the remainder of the evening without food. Make sure he has plenty of fresh water available. If he continues to vomit, it's very important that you take him to the Vet. Our kitties can become dehydrated quickly due to vomiting.

Perhaps if he'd like to drink the broth, that would increase his fluids.

If you use chicken broth, be absolutely sure it doesn't have any garlic or onions, and only minimal sodium/salt, if any.

I had that problem with snowbell before, vet ordered a medicated dry food. Maybe it's not ur case, I hope the kitten is well today

Have you changed her diet at all? Many food brands contain corn meal which is hard of a cat to digest. Some cats may digest it fine, but I have had more cats throw up from it then not.

My cat once ate some flowers, and she started vomitting up white foamy stuff..she wasn't eating and was a little lethargic. She ended up at the vet on 2 days of IV as she became very dehydrated and it cost me $800. She almost died.

She was fine after the IV for some reason though. I would take your kit to the vet sooner rather than later.

I will NEVER have flowers in my home anymore.

When Grizzly has upset tummy I withhold food and then I boil up a chix breast, cool and shred up the meat and give her a little to eat. That usually works for her.
