Cat Phoenix

Phoenix, my male cat unknown, has white frothy vomit

My cat phoenix has been throwing up white fluffy and clear mucus since last night I just would like to know what I need to do. He seems fine I’m just concerned I am a new cat owner and I love him to death

It is necessary to differentiate if it has been regurgitation (the food has not reached the stomach and you see the shape of the food / croquettes, etc.) or vomit (the food has already reached the stomach and has been digested). There are several causes of vomiting in cats: foods that your cat does not tolerate or is digesting badly, lots of physical effort or play immediately after eating, worms or parasites, etc. In adult cats the most probable cause is a change of hair and ingesting it more than normal. In kittens it could be something more severe, since the kitten can get quickly unbalanced and dehydrate.

If your cat regurgitate always after playing, having previously eaten, that can be the cause. To avoid it, you can try feeding him after the play or keep him calm after feeding. However, if he vomits several times a day and the next day does not improve (no playing immediately after eating), and if the vomit contains blood, your cat is lethargic and has diarrhea, it is recommended that you take him to a veterinarian as soon as possible to determine the cause and corresponding treatment.

All the best,
