Morning Vomiting

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
For some reason my oldest cat, 6 years has been throwing up only in the mornings about three hours after she eats. I haven't changed her food, same snacks and free feed dry. She doesn't vomit after her evening feedings. Normal behavior, litterbox and play behavior. I did change her food about two days worth to see if she vomited, yep, she did so I know it wasn't that her food was disagreeing with her tummy.

I called the tech at my vet's office and she didn't seem to think there is a problem.

Any ideas why she is doing this, nothing in her daily behavior has changed.
Thanks for all your time!

Do you think this could be a hairball issue. I have been reading about hairball/vomiting and wonder if I could give her a bit of mineral oil, vaseline or pumpkin?

It could be a hairball, but you said you talked to a vet TECH, I would ask to speak to the vet him/herself. While we techs are very very smart we don't know everything, and maybe the vet can assist you better. If it's a hairball, I'd use Cat lax or a similar brand.

Just thought I could get a start on the hairball issue with a small bit of vaseline tonite until I could get to the store tomorrow!

Thanks for your replies!

does she gulp down the food in the mornings maybe because shes very hungrey?

gulping it down fast might account for the vomiting

Try elevating her food bowl, and instead of a bowl give her a cookie sheet (elevated) with the kibble spread out on it. Keep the water in the same room, but not real close to the food.
