Question by Elly & Pao: Cat throwing up at the same time every morning?
My cat has been throwing up water at about 6 am ever since the vet put him on a strict diet (only a couple of days ago) – two feedings, one in the morning, one in the early evening. Is it possible he overcompensating for his lack of food at night by drinking too much water? Should I change his feeding time?
He was getting a little heavy, so he’s still on the same food, but it’s not out all the time. The food is Innova Evo.
Answer by Ken
Please add some details. What kind of diet and why?\
Thanks for adding. Innova evo dry is a great quality for a dry food but for health and losiong weight, your cat would be much better off on canned foods w/o gravy. Also, cats like to eat small meals throughout the day. The water drinking is because there is not enough water in dry foods to begin with. Cats get most of their water needs from their prey/food.

Nutrition since there are so many bad things out there is very important to your cat’s health
Contrary to what you may have heard; dry foods are not a great thing to feed a cat.
Please read the label on what you are feeding? What are the ingredients? Do you know what they mean?
Dry foods are the number 1 cause of diabetes in cats as well as being a huge contributing factor to kidney disease, obesity, crystals, u.t.i’s and a host of other problems. Food allergies are very common when feeding dry foods. Rashes, scabs behind the tail and on the chin are all symptoms
The problems associated with Dry food is that they are loaded with carbohydrates which many cats (carnivores) cannot process them. Also, Most of the moisture a cat needs is suppose to be in the food but in
Dry, 95% of it is zapped out of dry foods in the processing. Another thing, most use horrible ingredients and don’t use a muscle meat as the primary ingredient and use vegetable based protein versus animal. Not good for an animal that has to eat meat to survive.
You want to pick a canned food w/o gravy (gravy=carbs) that uses a muscle meat as the first ingredient and doesn’t have corn at least in the first 3 ingredients if at all. Fancy feast is a middle grade food with 9lives, friskies whiskas lower grade canned and wellness and merrick upper grade human quality foods. Also, dry food is not proven to be better for teeth.
