My cat eats too fast, doesn't chew, pukes all out again.
Maybe the billions of cat owners here can help me:

This been going for years but now it's at a point where it happens daily.
I can give him only canned tuna, the dried food is being puked out every time.

But even with the tuna, it's like feeding a starved kitten.
He didn't do this before. Used to eat his dried food in a "normal" way.

Any ideas?

Please no endless discussions about which food is better/worse.

Could be VERY hungry, try mushed, wet. Then take him to the vet for a checkup.

If it continues, stop the dry, and try mushed wet.

Time for a visit to the vet. Happened with my 16 yr. old cat too. Vet said it's not normal for a cat to throw up (bar the occassional fur ball). Vet gave him a shot of anti-nausia medication. I'm also now feeding him a more expensive brand of food. He's better now. Best of luck with your buddy.

Done this about 5 times now, it's a short solution (expensive too)
Vet said his stomach is too sensitive.

The only food he eats now is mushed (tuna) but i'd like him to get on the dried again, since there is another much greedier younger cat: food wars!

They make slow-em-down bowls for dogs, but I'm not sure if they make them for cats or if a small dog bowl would work. I use one for my puppy and it works great.

Try a brand of food that doesn't contain any red dye (check the ingredients as it will be listed). Many cats are super sensitive to it. I had three cats and 2 of them had the issue with red food dye, when I switched them off of it, puking became rare.

How old is your cat? You may be facing an "old age and end of life" situation with your poor kitty.

OP, you said your cat eats very fast and then pukes. This can happen if they scarf it down. Try a tablespoon at first. If he keeps that down, try another tablespoon in 15 minutes...and so on.

we have the same situation with our cats except there is 3 of em lol. only one though needs to eat canned food, it is because of her age. going on 12 human years now the dried food is either to hard on her throught or stumach and she barfs it up so then shes even more hungy and the cycle continues till we get her canned stuff. soaking the dried food does help but only some times.

That's what we had to do with my cats, because one of them would eat like he'd been starved for weeks and then barf.

This works.

You need to put some olive oil (spoonful) over the cats food. Do it for at least a week. Hope kitty will be all better by then.

Do you leave food out all the time so he can eat whenever he likes? sounds as though he might be afraid of getting hungry. Access to food all the time should help with anxiety.

If the cat eats too fast and that's why he pukes try putting a spoon or a ball in the bowl of dry food. This way he has to eat around it and it slows him down.
good luck
ps. what do you use to clean up the puke. Mine has been puking a couple of times lately after giving treats...
any idea why that is?

Another cat around, greedy? That might be a part of the problem. Try feeding the cats in two different rooms, possibly this kitty in the bathroom with the door closed.
