What Causes Bilious Vomiting In Cats?
Very often, bilious vomiting in cats happens due to an empty stomach.
When your cat’s stomach is empty, any bile that flows back into the stomach will land on empty stomach lining, thus increasing the likelihood of inflammation and irritation. This is why frequent feeding often helps stop bilious vomiting.
However, if your cat keeps throwing up yellow liquid, there could be a deeper problem. Some other conditions that could cause your cat to keep throwing up bile and not eating include gastritis, liver disease, renal insufficiency, intestinal parasites, hyperthyroidism, pancreatitis, indigestion and constipation, inflammation of the liver or gallbladder, and gastrointestinal obstruction.
Your cat throwing up stomach acid can also be caused by ingesting something that your cat’s stomach is intolerant to, ingestion of toxins, kidney disease, diabetes, hepatic insufficiency, various types of cancer, or irritable bowel syndrome.
It is impossible to know the actual problem causing bilious vomiting syndrome in cats without a proper diagnosis, which is why you should always take your furry buddy to the vet whenever you notice them vomiting yellow liquid. Ignoring the condition may have huge consequences for your cat.
