Sometimes vomiting is from eating a plant, a little acid reflux, eating dinner too fast, or stealing some people food. Other times it's due to more severe issues, like intestinal blockages, organ failure, or toxin ingestion. Fuzzy can help you understand if you need something simple- like a slow-feeder bowl or a little Pepcid AC- or something more serious, like lab work, ultrasounds, or even surgery.
Vomiting is a very common condition in pets, often because they eat things they shouldn't. However, vomiting can also be a sign of potentially fatal diseases. Vomiting should be taken seriously, especially if it happens multiple times in a day and is accompanied by lethargy, diarrhea, and lack of appetite. Pets with these symptoms should go to a full-service veterinarian. Cats especially known to vomit frequently, as hairballs, irritable bowel disease, kidney problems, high thyroid, and food sensitivities tend to increase with age.
An in-home visit with a Fuzzy Vet can help you understand why your pet is vomiting, and whether or not further diagnostics like blood panels, x-rays or ultrasounds are needed. They can also provide anti-nausea medications, antacids, food changes, and other treatments.
