Our 8 year old Lilac Point Siamese Cat was vomiting daily and it was very worrying. It got worse over a six month period and then we tried him on Wheat/Cereal free food to see if it made a difference. He has not been ill since. It has now been about 3 months and it has not returned at all. We are delighted!

Pancreatitis NEW
by: Anonymous

Siamese do seem to be more susceptible to pancreatitis than other pedigree breeds and moggies. I can only relate our own experience. Being sick 2 or 4 times a month on average, invariably after his most favourite food - prawns - denied after the 4th reaction - but subsequently any food could triggerit. This happened throughout his life with us (from 4 years until nearly 14, though we suspect it may have been present from birth. I also suspect selective breeding played its part. Difficult to diagnose but in his last few weeks it became much worse until we were left with no choice but to have him put down. That was 9 years ago. It's still one of the more difficult conditions to diagnose and treat and the older the cat, the bleaker the outcome.

Siamese that also vomits and became very thin NEW

It turns out that he developed Pancreatitis. I spent so much time trying every food available thinking it was allergies when what he needed was antibiotics.

Lilac Point vomiting daily NEW
by: Anonymous

Hello all, I have read the comments by Pat who seems to have some success with her Siamese keeping food down. We have a 3 year old Lilac point who has had extensive veterinary investigations, and tried different foods. The most successful was Royal Canin for sensitive cats, but she still vomitted regularly. The other problem is that it's miserable for her to have the same food day i, day out. She isnt poorly in herself, in fact apart from being incredibly shy and nervous, she is a happy bunny. So please could Pat (or anyone else) advise of a solution they may have found? Thanks, Carol

Raw
by: Allisha

Raw food is actually a good place to start. I work in a pet food store and when this happens I usually refer such sensitive tummies to raw food. Kibble is really processed which can hurt a cats delicate digestive system. Also kibble does not have enough moisture in it for them to be sufficiently hydrated. Raw is a reasonably priced substitute that is easy to digest, great for their systems, and if they have allergies - they won't react to it. As well, it contains a lot of moisture for them which will help their system overall - especially their stomachs. If you are worried about the protein - don't be. The actual meat content is not very high when put into perspective. It's mostly moisture so it will not effect stool or the stomach as well raw is a more balanced diet as you can switch regularly. I suggest getting a "full meal" or a "dinner" which already includes any necessary veggies they may require as well as meat.

Good luck!

Success
by: Pat

I have found a food that contains no cereal and my cats appear to love it, they get so excited at meal times and it stays down.
Thankyou so much from me and my lovely cats cleo and jasper for the advise i'm sure that their tummies must feel much better and i will have a lot less carpets and bedding to clean.

Thankyou again
Pat

Delicate Digestive Systems
by: Northcousin

Our cat was vomiting often after eating. I researched the problem and found that Siamese cats seem to have a delicate digestive system. Most cat foods have corn and wheat fillers. Since I found a cat food without corn and wheat, she keeps her food down. The fillers expand in their systems and they vomit to make themselves feel better. Without the fillers they eat the right amount and we`re all happy. Good Luck!
..Our cat is a sealpoint Siamese about 8 yrs old.

Yes i have taken them to the vets and was told this is common in older cats and they can develope these problems as they get older, they prescribed a food on presciption but that does not always stay down and is very expensive
