Sadly, persistent vomiting in feline family members is so commonplace these days that many pet parents and even some veterinarians believe it’s somehow “normal.” However, the reality is that chronic vomiting is a sign something’s wrong.
It’s worth noting that big cats in the wild don’t routinely vomit. In addition, frequent vomiting is stressful and physically taxing. You can be sure your poor cat doesn’t enjoy doing it any more than you enjoy cleaning it up.
Common causes of chronic vomiting in kitties include an underlying medical condition, poor diet and food intolerances, enzyme deficiencies, eating too fast, too much time in between meals, hairballs (wild cats don’t get these routinely, either), constipation and toxin ingestion.
