Help! Sick Male Cat-Boots
I have a 7 year old male in-door cat, "Boots" who is the love of my life. On Friday (today is the following Thursday morning) I noticed 2 spots of milky white vomit, which over the next few days including Monday ("Labor Day") continued off an on. The milky substance was replaced with visible food which was being vomited up. Prior to vomiting Boots lets out a few howls and then proceeds to vomit, almost like with a hairball. I took him to the vet on Tuesday morning and his fecal was normal and they did a blood test all which came back normal. They gave him some fluids as he has not wanted any food/water. The next night he was OK but then on Weds morning I tried to put a little wet (vet prescribed food) into his bowl and he began to vomit upon seeing this. I took him back to vet for an x-ray which came back normal. I am so frusturated as I am now being told to give him 2 1/4 size pills 2x's a day which he hates and still no drinking or food! I am very concerned. He is a healthy 13 1/2 lb. cat but not eating/drinking is making me worried to death. The vet wants to treat it as pancreatitis. Does anyone have any suggestions for me?? Please anything will be helpful.

I have no experience of Pancreatitis and so can't really comment. Does anyone else have any suggestions.
