Vomiting of Blood in Cats

3 min read

Treatment

 

Treatment varies greatly depending on the cause of hematemesis. Any underlying cause must be treated upon diagnoses. After this cause is identified and removed, if vomiting is no longer excessive, recovery may continue at home. For severe internal bleeding, ulcer perforation, or excessive vomiting, in-patient care may require emergency treatment for hemorrhage or shock, possible blood transfusions, and IV treatment to replace fluids lost through excessive vomiting.

 

Living and Management

 

A delicate diet of easily digestible foods is recommended after incidents of hematemesis. Foods should be low in dietary fat and low in fiber so as not to stress the digestive system. Further care is dependent upon the cause and on the consequent treatment given for hematemesis.

 

Prevention

 

Hematemesis due to the ingestion of toxic substances can be avoided by ensuring that your cat does not have access to poisonous plants and foods. In other instances, a healthy diet may aid against illnesses related to hematemesis and any resultant complications.
