There are many reasons that may lead to the issue of cat vomiting. If you are a cat owner, you must stay in tune with your animal’s signals to let you know that something is wrong. If you notice that your cat is behaving in an odd manner, keep an eye on them, it could make all of the difference in the world where their health is concerned.
When humans vomit there are usually some tell tale signs that let us know something is wrong, either immediately before or after the vomiting occurs. Because cats are unable to tell us in words that they are feeling poorly, you really need to watch their behavior if you suspect that something is up. You may notice that your cat is acting sluggish or even lethargic. This can signify the beginning of an illness that could cause cat vomiting.
First things first, you need to consider the fact that many cats throw up or vomit when there is no serious problem. Cats are known for hacking up hair balls because they spend so much time bathing themselves. You must consider that animals frequently swallow or eat things that are simply not meant to be eaten or are not good for their digestive system.
If you have a feline that likes to eat your flowers or plants, you may have issues with your cat vomiting. This is perfectly normal and while it is not attractive or appealing, you probably have nothing to worry about. However, if you do not think that your cat is throwing up as a result of simply eating the wrong thing or ingesting too much fur, you need to check a few things before proceeding.
Check out the litter box. If an animal or person has a virus, more often than not, there will be tell tale signs that accompany the cat vomiting. Look at the animal’s stool to see if it is watery, runny or inconsistent with it’s normal density. This could signify a problem that in addition to vomiting, can cause your feline to become dehydrated and very ill.
When you know that you have a cat that is throwing up, look at the vomit. Again, this is not a pleasant experience, but for the safety and well being of your cat, it is best to judge whether or not there are any foreign bodies in the vomit and whether or not there is any blood. If you see blood in the cat vomit, contact your veterinarian immediately.
Cats are emotional creatures. Sometimes, changes in the home or environment can spark your cat vomiting. If you are not witnessing any other signs of illness in your cat, think about the events that have been occurring in your home and whether or not your cat could just be upset.
Adding additional animals to the home and introducing new food to your feline can be other causes of cat vomiting. Check the warning signs and if the vomiting or other symptoms persist, contact your veterinarian and have your cat checked out.
