Vomit Question.

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
My cat keeps throwing up all over the house. My mom is saying it is from hairballs. Sometimes they look like foam, there is also one that looks like his food just mashed up.

Well I'm 18. I'm about to take him to the vet. The only thing I needed was a ride. His butt has like slime on it and his eyes are really watery. I was wondering if it could be from ticks. A while ago I took a tick off of him. Stupid me didn't go to the vet then. I swear if thats what this is I don't know if I will forgive myself.

Alright so I took evan to the vet 2 days in a row. The second day he stopped vomiting and just wont eat. He still hasn't pooped but he is eating a little every once in a while. They gave me this medicine and told me it was the worst but it works great. Anyway, Me being stupid put a little on my finger and touched his tongue. He bit down and bit my finger so I'm bleeding. After that he ran into the other room and starting like foaming kinda. It looked like he was just trying to spit the medicine out though. Any questions or suggestions?

Did they consider that fact that a hairball could be causing intestinal blockage? They believe that is what killed Sunni just last month, and it happened very fast, within a few days. Please make your vet aware of every detail and have him/her give you every option! Good luck!

Foaming, in this case is the reaction from the taste of the medicine when you touched his tongue.

Not entirely true, the cat was foaming before the medication as well-

When it comes to giving medicine my mom will somtimes put a tiny bit of butter or margarine on a pill before she gives it to her cat. Makes it taste better and slide down easier.

I perceived the original foaming was mixed with the vomiting. The other foaming was after the medicine was given. Perhaps I'm wrong.

First she may be throwing up often if she's eating too much food, too fast.

She perhaps feels threatened that if her food isn't eaten, right then and there, that it may be taken away or eaten by the other kitties. So she's eating fast and alot of it.

Hair ball treatments should be given 3x a week, as needed. Especially, if they're excessive groomers, or have allergies they may lick themselves more. So more hairballs will occur.

Hairball treatments are for just that, hairballs. It is NOT intended to stop vomiting, but rather may induce diarhea. It acts as a laxative causing the hair swallowed not to be blocked, but, instead to be passed through their bowel movements or coughed up.

Giving hairball treatments everyday can take away the nutrients in her body since the foods' ingredients aren't able to stay in her body. Instead it's sliding right through her from too much laxative in her.

Hope I helped.

jamesd-

Have your cat been seen by a vet?

Are you feeding the bowl, or feeding the cat? Overfeeding a cat will cause it to vomit

What are you feeding? And how often

If you have three cats, they should each have their own bowl

You can elevate your one cat's bowl to stop the cat from gulping the food- cats are notorious gulpers and they swallow a lot of air when they eat.

Worms can cause cats stomach upset, so can IBS and other stomach disorders, if your cat hasn't seen a vet you should make an appointment.

Sorry about not answering before now- this kind of got buried in someone else's thread
