Q. My cat vomited up a large hairball with his supper. Over the past couple hours he has vomited 4 more times just puking up fluid. Should I be worried?

A. Yes I would be concerned here with multiple vomiting episodes and hairballs. If your pet is not keeping any meals down then a vet visit is in order to check for a potential hairball obstruction (termed trichobezoar). Even if this is by the case, kitty needs some good antibiotics and possible anti-nausea medication to help treat him symptoms and hopefully settle things down before he gets too dehydrated.
