I believe that all of Royal Canin cat food contain chicken so I would avoid that one completely until you determine if Indy is allergic or not.

Brigitte,
What I find remarkable, is that when he is in the act of "chugging", if I come near him and talk to him, he often will stop and not vomit. That sure sounds like a separation anxiety or panic attack to me. Indy really thrives on a LOT of attention and encouragement. He is a very sensitive fellow.

One thing the original owner told me was that he had to have teeth extracted some years ago. I didn't have time to question her further on that point...................and neither vet remarked about it, so I didn't know.

He vomits wet food as well as dry so I don't think it's a non chewing issue either.
Maybe it is stress or anxiety...I guess if you find that consistently you can help him by reassuring him then you might want to work on that angle. It might resolve then in time as he settles into your home..

Yes Tinton Falls..........Apple and Hance Ave. Clean, new and modern facility with everything needed in one place.
Yes, I agree, a great facility. I've only been there a few of times to see specialists, it's 1-1/4 hour drive for me. I go to one of their local offices in South Jersey, but they only have 2 general and a bunch of emergency medicine vets.

The toughest thing about allergies is figuring out what they are allergic to. With Abby, we've been back and forth between food vs. environmental. When they thought it was environmental, they put her on Atopica, which worked, but required daily doses for 8 weeks then 2 or 3 times a week from then on. Eventually, I couldn't give it to her anymore because she would always run away from me so I couldn't give it to her. We now know she has a food allergy because she had a reaction 3 weeks ago when I tried to transition her to Orijen. Now we just need to find a food she isn't allergic to.

What was the previous owner feeding him? Did they have any allergy issues with him?

I counted the doctors on their staff whose licenses are all in a showcase on the wall near the cashier ................65 (yes sixty five) doctors in all.

More expensive than other places but it's a one-stop-shop, and also, like a top human hospital, it's worth it.

Previous owner was feeding him Natural Balance Green Pea and Salmon.

Problem is that he's not eating anything now. Not even his favorite Royal Canin Adult Sensitive Stomach formula

Royal Canin Adult Sensitive Stomach formula contains:
Brewers rice, wheat gluten, chicken meal, chicken fat, corn gluten meal....

If he is allergic to chicken, he cannot eat this.
