Cat vomiting can be a disturbing thing to deal with for a number of obvious reasons, but most of all when our beloved cats become sick, we worry. When they vomit we grow more concerned. There are a couple of reasons why your cat may be vomiting. Some of them aren’t serious issues and some of them are.
Most felines will ingest small amounts of their hair on a regular basis. Cats clean themselves buy licking their coats, and naturally there will be an accumulation of hair in the feline’s stomach that will eventually “come back up”. There are materials that are foreign that cats have been known to swallow. Grass is frequently ingested by felines, and grass has a high affect in irritating the stomach, as well as intestinal parasites. Many cases of a cat vomiting involve a cat eating too fast. Fast eating for cats has the same affect that it does on humans, only a quicker scale due to a smaller stomach. You have probably seen cat food in your cats vomit before, and that problem usually sorts itself out right then and there.
Cat vomiting can be a problem when it becomes a routine process. If a cat is vomiting and there does not appear to be an eating issue, then there may be an underlying disease. Infectious diseases, liver and kidney disease, and disorders of the nervous system are all signs that your cat vomiting will become a bigger health threat. Other diseases that are associated with cat vomiting are tonsillitis, feline panleukopenia, inflammatory bowels, infected uterus, and sore throat.
The best way to understand the reason why your cat is having health problems is to monitoring when and how the cat vomits. Make sure that you note the rate at which it occurs, how often and if it repeats or is sporadic. Inspecting the contents of you cat’s vomit will help better understand the cause, and narrow in on any diseases that the cat vomiting may be inducing.
