Occasionally we feed our 17 yr old cat some fresh chicken or turkey. We break it up into small pieces. Animals, being the gluttens they are will eat until they gorge themselves. Hower, we do not feed her very much. After she eats the fresh meat, it is not long before she throws up. This is not every time but most often. Could this be from worms?

Dear Eric,

It is probably not due to worms. If you are feeding raw, not all older pets tolerate it well. You might consider giving H2O-IONX to help with digestion, because digestive capabilities diminish with age. I would also give PROBIOTICS, too to help with food breakdown.

However, I would suggest that you take a stool sample to your veterinarian to have it checked for parasites. As one ages, the immune system can become weaker and any immature parasites in the body can awaken and start growing. You do not want parasites robbing your cat of it's nutrition.

Please let us know how you do.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
