Regurgitation in Cats



Experimentation with the cat's diet will likely be undertaken to see if the condition subsides with modifications. In most cases, your cat will require some form of ongoing therapy to manage the regurgitation.


Living and Management


Ongoing administration of any necessary medications, as well as diet management, will be important in managing this condition.




There are a variety of medications that can help prevent regurgitation, as well as antibiotics that can help with any symptoms or signs of pneumonia, which is also commonly present in cases of regurgitation.
