    That means his stomach was empty. The yellow was bile. Did you run more than usual or at a different time? Remember, no exercise right before or for an hour after eating to help prevent bloat. Also, not too much forced exercise at his age. He is still young and his growth plates have not closed.

    We use TRUPANION but that was just what worked for us. Do some research and see what fits your budget and needs.

    All very good information that we will research. :) Yes, Cato had an empty stomach when he vomited the yellow liquid. I thought it might have been a bug induced vomit, but we could't find any thing in it. We jog Cato 4 to 5 times daily as he loves it. We know about bloat and how to prevent it. Cato's feeding times have been 8AM then again at 4PM. Perhaps 4 is too early, but I don't like him having a lot on his stomach at night. He goes down at 10PM. He is crated at night and wake=up calls in the early morning hours are no fun, so we feed him early hoping for a BM before bed time.

    We have found out why Cato was not eating. He missed his tuna fish we had been adding to his kibble. This is tuna in water with no additives. Last evening he cleaned his dish of three cups kibble and two tablespoons tuna and water. You could hear the crunch of kibble from any room in the house. I gave it to him this morning and will be looking for normal stools today. He still has a vet appointment and will be checked for worms. How often do we need to have him checked for worms?:)

    Great news that he's eating again!

    We only have them checked once a year at their annual check-up, but if they'd had prior problems it might not hurt to bring a stool sample in a little more often.

    Thanks:) I have made Cato an appointment for the 5th. A stool sample is in order and will be taken.
