My male cat started vomiting this morning, why?
Cody is approximately 6 years old and is an indoor cat. He's always eaten in the morning, but this morning he ate and threw it up.
I waited a few hours before trying again and he threw it up again. It came up as fast as it went in. He is drinking water, but no more than usual.My thoughts:
I would call the vet. There are many possible causes for vomiting, including some very serious ones, such as ingesting poison (household chemicals, medications, etc.), swallowing a foreign object, or a severe haiball.
See this page for some possible causes:
"There are so many conditions that can lead to a cat throwing up, they are almost too numerous to list. They include feline diabetes, cat hairballs, intestinal parasites, heart-worm, bad cat food, feline hyperthyroidism, feline constipation, and many other conditions, some serious and others of little consequence."
It's good that he's drinking water, as dehydration can set in fairly fast with excessive vomiting.
I hope he recovers quickly and please keep us updated.
