Q. What can I do at home for my 8-yr old cat who's been vomiting "after" eating as if she's renching? Seems to occur only after she eats (twice a day)

Answered By

A. Sometimes cats are really greedy when you feed them and because the stomach receives the food too much rapidly is not able to retain the food and that's why possibly is been happening. Try to split the meals instead of twice a day in 5-6 small meals. If you just allow her to small meals and the vomits disappear that's diagnosed! If not go to your vet for a proper check up. If you confirm is just eating really quick you can buy especial bowls to slow down you cat when eating.
