Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis feline vomiting

pancreatitis

Avatar f tn my 10 yr old male cat has been diagnosed with feline pancreatitis. I have been feeding him smaller portions of low fiber high protein food many times per day. He is eating well and drinking plenty of water. His vomiting had become much less, but I am noticing that occassionally he may vomit up a blood tinged liquid/no food in it. is this to be expected with this condition?
Avatar m tn Yes, like you I found out the hard way. My vet told us that every time a summer holiday rolls around that involves picnicking, BBQing etc., he can count on having several pancreatitis patients at his door. It's such a serious and sometimes fatal condition, and most people have never heard of it.
Avatar f tn My senior cat has always had a tendency to vomit after eating, but now he is vomiting quite a lot. He was given a steroid (pred.) which has helped some. He is a very sensitive, nervous cat. His labs indicate that he does not have pancreatitis, and overall his lab work looks good. He had a full senior work up, as well as urinanalysis and the test for the pancreatitis (negative). He has been dehydrated, not eating well, nauseated and vomiting. Is the next step to do an ultrasound?
Avatar n tn Moochy is 3 years old and started vomiting a week ago. She coughed up two big hairballs in that time and wouldn't eat. I took her to the vet on the third day. The vet kept her for five days, did every test available and confirmed she has slight bilirubin and a very low white blood count but he couldn't find any cause. She doesn't have feline HIV or leukemia. He gave her broad spectrum antiobiotics and gave me some to give her now she's back home.
592969 tn?1248329005 I fed my cat some salmon canned fancy feast and within 20 minutes he was vomiting. He became lethargic and looked very sick. I took me to the vet at 1:00 a.m. and again today. The bloodwork shows raised levels in gallbladder and the doctor thinks this is hepatitis. Would this be an hepatitis A from food that he ate or how could he have contracted hepatitis?

13596572 tn?1431107976 My cat is 6 months old, male, and he has been vomiting since a few days, I want to know what's wrong with him, he is a long haired cat, not any special breed or anything. He eats and then pukes it all out. It happened 3-4 times by now. :( I am really worried, please help me as soon as possible.
Avatar f tn Vet doesn't think it's neurological, but metabolic. Repeated blood test with special feline pancreatic lipase test for pancreatitis. He ran up the stairs upon returning home. He's still not jumping onto his scratching post, but will onto my lap when I am on a chair or couch. He jumps down fine too. He was already evaluated by an internist 2 weeks ago. She is the one who ran the ultrasounds, and x-rays. There was a professional radiologist report from these images.

Avatar m tn We have a 12-yr indoor shorthair male cat. About 3 weeks ago he started vomiting phlegm (he urps a lot, but usually because he eats too fast). The vet gave him a shot of cortisone (he is allergic to some of the furniture in the house), which helped the phlegm. About a week ago we noticed that his breathing was rapid and shallow. We took him to the vet again, but they couldn't find anything. His breathing has since returned to normal. He was very lethargic as well.
Avatar f tn I'll give you a brief about her situation. 3 weeks ago she starts vomiting yellow Liquid with hairballs, stopped eating, her breathing was very fast 40 bits per minutes, I gave her the hairball remedy for three days in a raw, and I took her to the vet they gave her IV line for three days ( after the CBC test they found that she has a beginning of the dehydration) after that they took the IV line and start giving her boiled chicken she start having diarrhea again.
1176103 tn?1332974613 She was neg for feline leukemia, etc, and we left her to be spayed. However, when her presurgical blood work came in, her bilirubin and another item were "off the charts", we were told she likely had pancreatic or liver cancer. (although skeletally thin, she had a hard distended abdomen so we thought she was preggers.) They observed her all day, and stated that with her lab results, they expected her to be vomiting and have diarrhea and be completely listless.
12679876 tn?1426981493 Hi Darth, I think he should have an ultra sound or x-ray of his stomach and bowels also, if possible. There may be an obstruction or it could be pancreatitis. Blood tests are only part of the info for diagnosis. Good that he is getting his teeth taken care of that can be very painful to eat. My cat was throwing up for 3 days , was not dehydrated either, but the ultra sound and x-ray was needed to complete the picture. Just sayin---that is what I would do.
Avatar n tn I've been hospitalized twice in 3 wks, 5 days than 4 days now home dropping weight and in pain. I was diagnosed with severe chronic Pancreatitis, Duodenumitis, ulcers, gastritis and gastroparesis. When my GI said "you have a paralyzed stomach" I immediately asked "Can that be related to Chiari?" Of course his answer was no.
Avatar m tn We followed this regime for most of his life until about 6 months ago when Hudson started vomiting and having loose stools. A new vet suggested a new diet: Hill's d/d in venison and a stronger course of prednisone: 5mg twice daily for a week, 5mg once daily for a week, then 2.5mg once daily for a week, 2.5mg every other day for a week, and so on until we were back down to the 1.25mg every other day. The prednisone did not seem effective, so we switched to prednisolone.
1358341 tn?1282213443 Renal failure usually is not caught till the cat starts showing symptoms like Excessive water intake, frequent urination, vomiting, constipation, Diarrhea, loss of appetite, etc. Sometimes if a cat is dehydrated or has an infection their bun and creatine levels can go up and then come down after treatment.. That's all I know, I also am not a vet but a pet owner who has also lost one of her cats due to a four year battle with CRF...
541150 tn?1306037443 We're praying for you in our own feline way. We lost our Godfather recently and we know how you and your human feel. You're a young cat and we hope a strong cat. We'll pray and eat lots of treats to give you more strength. You know you have a wonderful owner who loves you so much; Anakin wanted to pack his suitcase and move in with her. PrettyKitty - this is about you and Abby not me. I know I fu** up a lot but I am really praying that Abby is alright.
Avatar f tn I had given her fluids at home and the next day when I brought her for an ultrasound of her abdomen, they thought from an xray that she had possible pancreatitis and had given her more meds for that, she had a large bruise at the site of the fluids. That day her dvm told me she was severely anemic and she thought Angie was dying... the dvm was very upset- she was crying. I took Angie to a speciality hospital where she was given iv fluids, pain killers and tested.
Avatar n tn Hello! I've an 11-year old long-haired feline who has megacolon. We move around quite a bit, and I have had to shuffle him between vets, and am about to shuffle him again. Four years ago, just a few months before we were about to move overseas, he developed a constipation problem. His American vet gave him an enema and put him on stool softeners to be used only occasionally. Once we moved overseas, he had several enemas before his vet put him on liquid paraffin every day.
1560663 tn?1298050127 I also have a 10 year old cat who had exploratory surgery because she was vomiting. They thought it was Pancreatitis, then an x-ray and u/s showed a thickening in the colon so that is when we scheduled surgery. This is not Mega Colon but IBS, and I treat her with 1/8 tsp Miralax in her morning wet food and her evening wet food. She is on a diet pf Z/D prescription wet food and dry, and takes Budesonide (formulated as a liquid) every day.
