Cats with inflammation of the stomach, pancreas, or intestines may vomit. Ingestion of excessive amounts of hair in cats who overgroom may also result in an upset stomach in cats. Foreign body ingestion is another possible cause, especially objects that cats find attractive such as rubberbands, tinsel, and dental floss. Dietary/food hypersensitivities may develop in a cat of any age and may also result in vomiting. Cats with acute vomiting often benefit from food restriction for 12-24 hours to allow the digestive tract inflammation to subside. Following this short fast, introducing bland baby food diets for a few days such as turkey or lamb baby food can be helpful. It may also help to give cats at a dose of 2.5 to 5 mg once or twice daily to help settle a sour stomach. For cats with suspected hairballs, products such as and are often given. Lubricants including cod liver oil may also be used to soften foreign materials or hair in the stomach. Homeopathic remedies useful in cats with acute upset stomachs include Nux Vomica, Pulsatilla, and Arsenicum Album. If one remedy does not help within 12-24 hours, then change to a different remedy. Cats with worsening signs and/or symptoms that persist for more than 24-48 hours should have a full medical examination before further treatment is tried.
