My dog has been eating all of the cat's food for the past two days, then vomitting all over the carpet. I don't really have a place up high to put the cat's bowl, so that's kinda outa the picture. I don't understand, he loved his food! It's the only kind of dog food so far that he likes and doesn't puke up! (he has a very sensitive tummy)<br><br>
I also, due to the nature of the apt, do not have a place that he does not have access to, in case I were to move the cat food. Any ideas on this? He just had a checkup last week and was healthy.

You don't have a room you can block off for the cat? I use a babygate to keep Rascal out of the cat's areas.

Maybe get a box, cut a door in it that only the cat can fit into & keep it's food in there</div>

I like that idea.

That is a great idea, we use a closed food box, all our cats know how to open the door with thier little paws but the dogs can not get in

Hey, yah! That sounds like an idea.<br><br>
I don't have a room I can shut off from the dog because I don't have any rooms. Our apt was unfinished when we moved in, and it's basically a really big studio apt right now. The only interior doorway we have is for the bathroom, (where her food is now) and even it has an exterior door with a window in it!

You just need something that the cat can jump over (like a baby gate) or into (like a box). Same for the kitty litter, best to block it off somehow before puppy learns how salty-fresh kitty poop is.

Hi evilvegan,<br><br>
About your dogs Vet check, did you have a complete blood panel done? If not maybe you should consider it. Sometimes an animal will go off their regular food because they have an underlying health problem like kidney or liver functions which may be impared. For some reason they just seem to know that they may need a higher protein or maybe a lower protein food because of their condition. So if you haven't done the blood work, maybe do it and just see if all the organs are functioning properly.

I had the opposite problem...my cat kept eating the dog's food. What finally worked for me was that whenever I saw my cat eating the dog's food, I'd gently scoot him over to his own bowl. When he ate out of his own bowl on his own, without me scooting him over, I'd pet him and praise him. If your puppy loves attention like most puppies, this might work.
