You may have seen a cat vomit a few times without a lot of thought. Vomiting can be caused by something small like eating too quickly or it could be a symptom of a serious condition that may need immediate medical attention.

What Are Some Treatment Options?

bar

The common action course is to withhold water and food until the vomiting has stopped for two hours. Afterwards, water will be introduced slowly, followed by a bland diet. You can baby your cat like you would a sick child and give them homemade foods like cooked, skinless chicken, rice or boiled potatoes.

In some situations, your cat may need fluid therapy or antiemetic drugs to help control vomiting. You will need to see your vet in order to find the right remedy.
