Our cat Mercy needed to make some adjustments over the last year. Not only did he move in with us, when he was used to spending most of his time alone with Paul’s mom, he suddenly found himself sharing a home with two other cats. All three cats get along but we noticed Mercy started grooming more than usual and we thought it might be from the stress.
When he began to throw-up a little more often and that gave us even more cause for concern. Our veterinarians couldn’t find anything medically wrong with Mercy, so we decided to keep an eye on him and try to ease his tummy with a diet easier on his digestion.
The Symptoms of Gastrointestinal Upset
Gastrointestinal upset is one of the most common reasons cats are brought in to see their veterinarian. There is a wide range of symptoms for a cat with a digestive problem. Some of the most common are:
- loss of appetite
- excess gas
- difficulty swallowing
Causes of Cat Digestive Problems
A gastrointestinal disorder can impair your cat’s ability to digest and absorb nutrients. The disorder can be caused by many factors, including:
- an abrupt change in diet
- eating something they should not have eaten.
- foreign objects
- infectious agents
Treatment For Your Cat’s Digestive Problem
Your veterinarian will determine the best treatment for your cat’s digestive problem. This treatment could be dietary management, medical management or surgery. Since cat digestive issues can irritate the stomach and intestine your cat will need a diet that is easily digested to help ensure they get the nutrient balance needed to support their recovery.
