    Bernadine Cruz, DVM responded:
    I am hopeful that by the time of this reply that your dog is feeling better. There are so many reasons why your dog is demonstrating the signs you are seeing. Yes, cat food can cause intestinal distress and vomiting. If your dog is not used to eating this or if she ate too much of it, it can lead to vomiting. In the future, it is best to stop all food and water for an hour or so after an episode of vomiting...then gradually reintroduce a small amount of water. If that stays down, offer some more water then feed your pet lightly that night. If the vomiting recurs, stop all food and water and make an appointment to see your primary care veterinarian. If your pet seems distressed, is very lethargic or seems to be going downhill, see your veterinarian immediately.

    All the best..;.
