Don’t Ignore Your Cats Vomiting

Wednesday, February 21, 2018
posted by Jim Murphy

There are many reason why cats vomit that ranges from something serious to eating something that disagreed with them. An occasional, isolated episode of vomiting is usually normal.

Here’s a general rule of thumb.¬† If your cat vomits once or twice or infrequently and then goes on to eat normally, play normally, pee and poop normally and shows no signs of ill health then there probably is no reason for concern.

If your cat suddenly develops chronic vomiting, becomes listless and is not eating, take him to a vet right away.

My cat Molly used to vomit very frequently due to kidney disease. As the disease progressed, her vomiting got worse.

Keep in mind, one of the most common reasons for a cat to vomit is hairballs.Hairball medication will help with this problem. ¬†Sometimes a cat eats too quickly which causes him to vomit. Parasites could be another reason for the vomiting. Don’t guess and try to treat your cat by yourself. If the vomiting is persistent and he appears ill, take him to your vet for testing. Chances are, the problem may be taken care of with pet medication.

Remember, your pets count!
