My cat has a loose stool and is vomiting – is he sick? — 8 Comments

  1. Monty was having loose stools and vomiting awhile ago and the vet determined it really was just hair balls. He gave sub-Q fluids and a medicine to suppress vomiting. We brushed Monty really carefully several times also and the problem stopped. It was right around the start of warm weather and he just was shedding heavily and ended up with hair balls. So vomiting and diarrhea don’t necessarily mean the worst or even a big vet bill. However, dehydration is serious and hard on the kidneys, so I chose to get him to the vet if only to prevent future problems. You don’t want a small problem turning into a big one.

    Monty also had chronic diarrhea on and off for a long time and we figured out it was chlorinated city water causing it. He gets Dasani now and unless he gets really bad hair balls or eats way too much grass he never gets diarrhea. Before it was two or three times a week.

    If I feed Monty those fancy meals with hunks of real chicken he’ll do a frothy vomit. He does not chew his food! When he gets big hunks of unchewed food in his system (dry biscuits sometimes are problematic also) he will vomit a frothy liquid. I won’t give him those chicken appetizers anymore. They are food for cats, but really high grade cuts of meat. He just doesn’t chew it enough.

    So it’s possible to have a cat vomiting because he hovers his food instead of chewing it.

  2. I have a 5 yr old male cat who in the past 2 days has thrown up clear and then a little brownish/yellow he also has loose stool makes it too the litter box but leaves some on the floor when he comes out.is this something serious?
