I have a mature cat who forever was throwing up. I got so tired of cleaning up after her. Now she is on Prednisolone, 5mg/day and if I cut back on the dose she will throw up. My vet won't renew the script without an office visit - which to me is just a way of taking more of my money. Can I fill this script some other way, or is there a natural remedy that would give the same results? Anybody use a product from Only Natural Pet Store that they could recommend, for instance?

Prednisolone is a steroid and can create many problems long term, like kidney and liver damage. I would look for another Vet as well. There are a lot of alternative treatments for animals that don't have the toxic side affects and do the damage that drugs do, and can turn disease around and heal animals.
   
Do you feed your cat dry food? Kibble is one of the worst foods you can give a cat (or dog) as there is not enough moisture and it almost always has corn, soy, gluten & by products which are very difficult for cats(and dogs) to digest. This may be why your kitty is throwing up. Her digestive system is being compromised. It has been my experience with cats to feed them either a raw food diet or an high quality canned food (Newman's own, Halo, Blue Wilderness, Precise, Instinct, and Natural Balance all come to mind.) You won't find these at your local grocery store, but Petco carries most of the brands I mentioned and all of these have *HUMAN GRADE* ingredients.
   
It is unfortunate that most people simply are not educated in regard to feeding and caring for their pets and don't realize that our pets develop the very same diseases that we do and so it truly is all about the diet. Also: ALL vets (unless they are Holistic) will push their Science Diet, Royal Canin and other junk cat/dog food that is anything BUT healthy for your pet regardless of what the vet tells you and how it will help(it is ALL about profit) so don't buy it! There is a plethora of info online about pet foods, healthy and not so healthy. The choice is yours.
   
One excellent online holistic pet store is: PetAlive.com You may find a product there that could help your cat. I have purchased many items there so I would recommend PetAlive.com for sure.
   
Good Luck!
