This post is sponsored by Purina. We are being compensated for helping spread the word about the new Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets EN Gastroenteric Naturals formulas, but The Tiniest Tiger only shares information we feel is of interest to you.

Our cat Mercy needed to make some adjustments over the last year.  Not only did he move in with us, when he was used to spending most of his time alone with Paul’s mom, he suddenly found himself sharing a home with two other cats.  All three cats get along but we noticed  Mercy started grooming more than usual and we thought it might be from the stress.

When he began to throw-up a little more often and that gave us even more cause for concern.  Our veterinarians couldn’t find anything medically wrong with Mercy, so we decided to keep an eye on him and try to ease his tummy with a diet easier on his digestion.

 The Symptoms of Gastrointestinal Upset

Gastrointestinal upset is one of the most common reasons cats are brought in to see their veterinarian.  There is a wide range of symptoms for a cat with a digestive problem.  Some of the most common are:

  • loss of appetite
  • excess gas
  • vomiting
  • constipation
  • diarrhea
  • difficulty swallowing

Causes of Cat Digestive Problems

A gastrointestinal disorder can impair your cat’s ability to digest and absorb nutrients. The disorder can be caused by many factors, including:

  • an abrupt change in diet
  • trauma
  • eating something they should not have eaten.
  • toxins
  • foreign objects
  • parasites
  • medication
  • infectious agents

Treatment For Your Cat’s Digestive Problem

Your veterinarian will determine the best treatment for your cat’s digestive problem. This treatment could be dietary management, medical management or surgery. Since cat digestive issues can irritate the stomach and intestine your cat will need a diet that is easily digested to help ensure they get the nutrient balance needed to support their recovery.

  3. Susan Pertierra says

    This would be great for my sister’s cat who tends to vomit after eating.

  4. One of my cats has a history of vomiting without cause. I tried Purina Gentle and all the cats liked it. It seemed to ease the vomiting one a little but not completely. I wonder if EN Gastroenteric Naturals Feline Formula with Added Vitamins & Minerals could be the one to make a real difference? Only one way to know and that’s to try it.

  5. Janice Rockwell says

    I would love to try this. My cat is on ID diet now and still vomiting

    Peanut (19) has been sick off and on for her entire life (throws up hands in despair) and the vet could never find anything wrong. It is only is recent times that these special formulations have appeared – and not a moment too soon for the sensitive cat!

  8. Sheree Harrell says

    I’d like to try this food for my Violet. She throws up constantly and my Vet and I haven’t been able to find the reason. I have tried grain free, limited ingredients, Science Diet D/D, and nothing helps. She is a small cat – only weighs about 6 lbs, probably cause she is all ways throwing up her food.

  9. Linda Szymoniak says

    One of our three cats – Moko – does have a sensitive stomach and tends to throw up more than just for furballs. I’ve switched to a grain-free food, which does seem to have helped, but hasn’t eliminated the problem. This sounds like it might be good for her.

  10. Kathy Gale says

    I wonder if the food would help my Gaby. She seems to be fine, and then I’ll turn around and she is throwing up.
