Vomiting and Diarrhea in Cats
Cats are among the most common household pets that people have. Most pet owners look at their cats as members the family. As such, it is important for cats to have a place to go when they get sick. At A Cat Hospital, it is our goal to make sure that every cat in the Las Vegas and Henderson areas have a place to go for veterinary care. With the help of a trained veterinarian, every cat has a good chance of making a full recovery.
The Common Causes of Vomiting and Diarrhea
When a cat has developed vomiting and diarrhea, there are a few possible reasons why. First, cats might have vomiting and diarrhea because they picked up a stomach bug from somewhere. This might be a viral or bacterial illness. Next, some cats end up vomiting because they ate something they shouldn't have. Some cats are curious and end up eating non-food items. We also see cats who share a house with other animals and eat food that isn't meant for them. Finally, cats can also develop vomiting and diarrhea when they experience high levels of stress and anxiety. Cats can sense a shift in their environment. This can create a lot of stress for cats and can cause them to start vomiting or develop diarrhea.
Treatment Options for Cats with GI Illnesses
At A Cat Hospital, we know that it can be stressful to have a sick pet. That is why we work hard to treat these illnesses as quickly as possible. Our first job is to fix the dehydration that is going to result from vomiting and diarrhea. This can be done intravenously if the cat is not able to take anything by mouth. Then, we will figure out what caused your cat's symptoms. We may want to test the vomit, stool, or your pet's blood to look for answers. If there is an infection, we will treat it appropriately. Trust us to take care of your cat when he or she is suffering from a GI illness.
