sensitive stomachs/foods

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello All!

I have an 15yr old male cat, (Casper), who seems to have a sensitive stomach. What I was wondering, can I give him tagamet(human medication)? I have been trying all kinds of different foods, but not one seems to be to his liking. I thought somebody came out with sensitive stomach food, but I can't seem to find it in any stores near me? Any HELPFUL suggestions welcome. Thanks

Science Diet has the sensitive stomach food. I wouldn't give any human medications to a cat without consulting a vet. There are certain medications that can be lethal to felines and not canines. What are the symptoms your cat is giving you?

I agree with Sandie - never give people medicine to your cat without consulting the vet.

Also, when has this started? Has the vet looked into any reasons for the sensitive stomach?

usually a single source protein such as chicken would eliminate a sensitive stomach. However since you never mentioned symptoms you should check with your vet first.

My cat Max also has a sensitive tummy. I have found that feeding him a good quality food is just as good as the food that the vet prescribed. Hell603...could you describe what a single protein food is? Thanks!

One of my cats is on the Science Diet Sensitive Stomach food and it has done wonders for her. Sometimes, as cats get older (you said yours is 15, I think), their stomachs become less tolerant of some foods. I would check with the vet to rule out any illnesses first though.

Single source protein: Boiled chicken, cooked beef, broiled turkey, cooked liver (ughh) anything on that order - NO SPRICES - mix with cooked veggies and rice. That should have a very calming effect on the tummy and his digestive system. I know it's extra work but I think well worth a try if your little one will eat it. Good luck!!!
