• My cat is throwing up foam. I recently changed his food to grain free because of soft stools. Now he's not moving them at all. Could the food be causing this?

    Hi Vernon,
    I recommend that you take your cat into see a veterinarian. A change in food can cause vomiting or diarrhea but there can be other causes for this as well. These causes include intestinal parasites, infection, a GI foreign body, inflammation of the GI tract, or even a severe underlying medical issue like kidney or liver disease. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of his symptoms after they have examined him. They may recommend some lab tests and/or x-rays to help diagnose or rule out certain diseases. The treatment that he needs will depend on the underlying cause and severity of his symptoms.
