Back to the vet again :(

Poor Tigger, tomorrow first thing in the morning I have to rush him to the vet. Looks like he is blocking again.
I have an issue, this is the 3rd time, each time he is ok for 6 months, then blocks again. I tried the vet food they give, both kinds, all we got was major sickness, vomiting, and the runs. I put him on uretic, he is fine for 6 months then downhill again.
Is there some other food I can try . Right now he did not eat, which for him I know is a major sign.

Yup, wet food. Grain-free, such as Wellness, Innova Evo, Nature's Variety Instinct, By Nature Organics, Ziwipeak,..... Completely eliminate all dry food from Tigger's diet or this is going to keep happening. If he is really blocked, I have to say that he should be going to the emergency room tonight.

he still is eliminating a little bit, just often. I would love to take him tonight, I have no one here, Kayla is sleeping, no babysitter anywhere around me anymore
