The color of the yellow vomit in cats it is due to a particular secretion: bile. This yellow / greenish color is secreted by the liver and takes part in the digestion process of food. If your cat vomits the bile, therefore, we must go and search for the causes of this digestive problem, which we are going to see below along with symptoms and remedies.
There are several causes of yellow vomit in cats:
One of the main causes of yellow vomit is indigestion. For example, yellow vomit can occur in conjunction with the expulsion of hairballs. Or, it could also be caused by your cat's prolonged fast: in these cases, bile accumulates in the stomach where, finding nothing to degrade, it attacks the stomach walls causing burning and acidity.
Intoxication or poisoning
A cat's intoxication can be caused by incorrect eating habits: make sure that your cat's food does not contain artificial dyes, preservatives or appetizing substances which in the long run could cause food intolerances or, in the most serious cases, real allergies. These manifest themselves through retching, sometimes immediately after eating, sometimes away from meals (due to irritation of the mucous membranes).
Yellow vomiting can also be a symptom of poisoning: be concerned with this option if your cat moves freely outside the house, or if you have used pesticides and insecticides at home.
More serious is the case of vomiting due to real pathologies, such as: intestinal inflammation, pancreatitis, liver disease.
All of these conditions must be identified by a veterinarian. Unfortunately, when it comes to this type of disease, vomiting occurs at an already advanced stage: for this reason, always try to pay attention to the changes in behavior of your furry friends!
If you suspect a food intolerance, make sure you feed your cat a proper diet. First, give your cat exclusively hypoallergenic kibble for at least three months. Subsequently you can reintegrate, under veterinary advice, even monoprotein kibble. If the vomiting symptom goes away, the problem is solved. Do not make your cat heavy meals: they are recommended, instead, regular and light meals based on proteins and rice that do not burden digestion.
If, on the other hand, the vomiting is caused by a disease, the only effective remedy is timeliness: have your cat do periodic veterinary checks (at least every 6 months) and try to promptly detect the signs of discomfort to intervene as soon as possible.
Dandruff is not just a blemish: in cats it can reflect a more serious health problem, and their constant scratching can cause skin lesions. A healthy cat will always have soft skin with no flakes of dandruff or visible irritation. We will tell you here what are the causes, symptoms and remedies for dandruff in cats .
There dyspnea in cats it depends on many reasons, or at least it can happen. The consequences are closely related to them. The famous cause-effect relationship that is talked about at school during the physics lesson and beyond. All this also affects us bipeds who care immensely for the well-being of our four-legged friend, both from a psychological and physical point of view.
The biliary vomiting in cats it is a condition to pay close attention to. In general, vomiting is never a good sign, apart from the sporadic cases in which Micio expels hairballs (which is quite normal). When the vomit is yellow, the cat obviously has intestinal motility problems, which means that the bile enters the stomach abnormally causing irritation.
There enlarged spleen in cats it is a condition also called splenomegaly and is the consequence of another disease. In essence, the spleen, an organ located on the left side of the stomach, increases its volume due to inflammation. It is due to a chain of events:
Have you ever seen a cat that slowly "fades", becoming gray or even white? This phenomenon (which is called cat vitiligo) occurs because Micio loses its natural pigmentation (hence the color). It is a rather rare condition, but absolutely possible!
