Any suggestions on what supplements might help with a farty cat? We are trying (again!) to transition Taggy to new foods, but many of them, well, all of them, make him prodigiously gassy. He does not seem uncomfortable otherwise, normal poop, normal appetite, been to vet, has normal bloodwork, normal energy. He has been eating Friskies wet pate forever, but recently seems to have been having more episodes of vomiting the food up wholesale within a half hour after eating, probably from eating too fast? but in any case, some variety is probably a good idea.

I have tried giving him a little bit of Fortiflora, although that led to softer/runny stools.  And, um, on that note, any good tips on cleaning skid marks off grooved upholstery fabric?  Grin  Roll Eyes

Sorry, no tips other than patience. Unless he is intolerant to some ingredients in those, it will normalise with time when his digestive system adjust. Continue with probiotics and be patient, I guess.

Throwing up immediately after eating is most likely eating too fast. Max does that on regular basis, greedy boy.

One note of caution - once cats adjust to having variety, you'll have mutiny if you serve the same thing for breakfast and dinner  Grin Sophie jumps on kitchen islands and pushes cans on the floor to show us we should give her something else to eat.

 Grin Grin On Sophie & Taggy's gas problem! Alec0 is right ,try a different probiotic if forti flora isn't going well. Can you do part of the friskies with part of the new food added ? A slower transition might help . The only other idea I have would be add a teaspoon of pumpkin .

Lol Sophie. I am duly forewarned.    Wink

I can do half and half new food mixed with old. For some reason I just completely spaced on doing that--guess the vomiting freaked me out and I just wanted it to stop. I did also get a second probiotic (Vetri Mega Probiotic from Vetriscience if anyone has any experience with it?).

Patience it is, then. And ventilation. Lots of ventilation.  Grin
