Why Your Cat May Be Vomiting
Not all signs of vomiting in cats is a cause for immediate panic, but as responsible and loving pet owners, it’s best that we keep a close eye out for any severe symptoms in our precious little cats. Vomiting can be broken out into two main categories: chronic or acute. Cats with chronic vomiting may throw up with some regularity (e.g. monthly, or even daily) but usually only vomit once in each occurrence. Acute vomiting on the other hand happens when cats that don’t normally vomit begin vomiting multiple times in a single session.
Symptoms of vomiting can be fairly obvious, including drooling and abdominal heaving. Vomiting can quickly leave your cat dehydrated so if the symptoms persist, contact your vet immediately. Common reasons for vomiting in cats tend to be because they have eaten poisonous, inedible, or infectious foods. In more severe cases, it could also be caused by diabetes or urinary tract problems.
In general, if your cat throws up once or twice and seems to be normal afterward, it probably isn’t much to worry about. If you suspect that perhaps your cat has eaten something dangerous, or if you observe any blood, or the vomit seems to be really discolored with a strong smell, then this could be a cause for concern. The good news is that most vomiting in cats is treatable.
