My cat is throwing up clear liquid

My cat is throwing up clear liquid a lot. Is she ok? Is there something she can eat?

A:

It’s not your cat’s food that’s being thrown up, it’s what she eats. The stomach contents are being released to get rid of the stuff she has eaten.

You should take her to the vet as soon as possible.

A sample of the material in the vomit is sent to a lab to identify what she ate. If this is the first time she’s had this problem, you could have a bit of a wt, but it will be worth it in the long run.

A:

It is most likely the result of an indigestible item that was swallowed but has not properly moved through her intestines, so now is just being expelled.

So to prevent this from happening agn in the future:

You could change her food to a different kind that is easier for her to digest.

Or you could just cut her teeth out and not worry about them coming back.

A:

A cat may do this to remove a foreign object (e.g. a hrball) from her stomach. It's also possible that she's trying to get something to vomit out before it will do damage to her stomach or intestines. The best thing is for you to get her to the vet to get a diagnosis.

If you're concerned about her health then it may be worth seeing if she has a fever (or if she's acting sick/injured in any other way), but if the vomiting is normal then it may not be anything to worry about.

It might also be helpful to watch for other signs of illness, like vomiting (which could indicate dehydration, for example). If she's eating less and is not taking liquids (water, food) then she may be ill or injured.

I don't know what your cat is eating, but this article covers some of the different types of food, and might be of use. There are some foods that don't make cats very happy.

As a general note: cats are pretty much carnivorous. They need high-protein food to have good muscle and organ development, so you might want to consider a diet that includes high-quality meat. There are a few vegetarian options (eg: Hill's Science Diet Feline Dry Cat Food), but these are mostly higher in fiber, so you may not get the same amount of protein.

That sd, there are plenty of options for "low-meat" diets. You could do a web search for "cats on vegetarian diets" or "cats on vegan diets" to see what's avlable. I'm sure the various veterinary associations (American Veterinary Medical Association, American Animal Hospital Association, etc.) have more detled information.

And, as mentioned, if your cat has a fever then that's a good reason to take her to the vet. The doctor will have a better idea of whether it's something that can be treated.
