How to treat cats with sensitive stomachs?

My cat has a sensitive stomach.

Make sure that the cat has a very gentle diet - probably the best thing to do would be to make your own cat food rather than buying it, or buying a sensitive stomach food. The cat will need a diet mostly made up of chicken or white fish.

It's very possible that the cat has hairballs and will need a hairball remedy. Have your cat checked not only for regular worms but hookworms as well. Hookworms are difficult to diagnose. Signs of hookworms include blood in the stool and a sensitive stomach. Have your cat checked by the vet and use a diet for sensitive stomachs.

The best way to treat a cat with a sensitive stomach is to figure out what tends to bother the animal. Some foods have fillers that don't get digested well by cats; sometimes cats have food allergies just like humans. Is your cat getting into "human" food? If so, that might be the culprit.
