What to Do if Your Cat has a Stomach Problem?

Sunday, April 7, 2013

I’ve been writing about my cat Molly’s upset stomach which resulted in a visit to the Veterinarian. There are several issues which can cause an upset stomach in a cat. Hairballs is one of the main causes. You can see the hairball when your cat cough’s it up. This can be controlled by hair ball medicine sold over the counter in most pet stores. Make sure you groom your cat regularly to reduce the amount of loose hair. My cat had gastroenteritis. It caused her to vomit and diarrhea.

To ease stomach discomfort, stop all food and water for 24 hours. Then feed your cat a bland diet of boiled chicken and cooked rice.  I would take her to the vet as soon as possible to get to the bottom of the problem. Many conditions can cause vomiting and diarrhea in cats such as liver, kidney or pancreatic disease. Only your vet will be able to rue out these causes.

Remember, your pets count!
