Cats throw up often, let’s face it. They usually throw up because of something they ate or because they have very sensitive digestive systems. In most cases, there is really nothing to worry about.

The concern arises when the vomiting becomes acute, meaning it isn’t stopping even though there is nothing left to bring up except for stomach bile. If this is the case, you should see your veterinarian immediately. Vomiting may also be the first sign of a far more serious problem, but because it could have so many possible causes, figuring out the exact one is difficult.

What causes cats to vomit?

A four year old Cheeto found in the couch or an insect from the yard could easily be the culprit of your cat vomiting. This is always the case however. Sometimes there are far more serious reasons your cat is getting sick, especially when it becomes a case of acute vomiting. Here are a few potential causes to be aware of:

  • Tumors
  • Heat stroke
  • Liver disease
  • A change in diet
  • Intestinal obstruction
  • Blockage of the esophagus
  • Pancreatitis
  • Stomach Dislocation
  • Intestinal parasites
  • Dietary indiscretion
  • Eating too quickly
  • Food Allergy
  • Food intolerance (usually to human food)
  • Adrenal gland disease
  • Kidney disease

There are a few signs that could help you identify if your cat is vomiting because of one or more of these conditions. Keep an eye out for weakness,pain or discomfort in your feline friend. Also look for blood in their stool or vomit. It you notice any of these, it’s time to make a call to your veterinarian.

treatment for vomiting 

Since there are so many possible causes of vomiting in cats, the treatments will vary depending on the cause. Some recommendations your veterinarian may make include:

  • Antibiotics, (for bacterial ulcers)
  • Change to diet
  • Medication
  • Corticosteroids (for bowel disease)
  • Surgery


Once you have begun a treatment pay close attention to your cat. If their condition does not improve, return to your vet.

Why CBD can be an effective treatment & preventative for your cat’s nausea

CBD – or Cannabidiol – can be an effective remedy for upset stomachs, and can help to minimize the occurrence of vomiting in cats.

Why CBD can be an effective treatment & preventative for your cat's nausea

Cannabidiol (CBD) can be very beneficial for maintaining your cat’s immune system, cardiovascular system and overall vitality.  CBD helps to lessen the effects of lethargy, gastrointestinal issues and reduces anxiety, aggression and stress-related disorders.

Think of CBD as a supplement that can reduce the severity of feline nausea and vomiting by limiting the number of infections, tumors and gastrointestinal issues.  It can be ingested, under the tongue, or applied topically to the affected areas.  One of the most beneficial components of CBD is that it does not irritate the point of contact, nor does it cause any hallucinogenic effects.  CBD has been shown to soothe inflammation in the GI tract, and can help to counteract the irritation, pain or discomfort affecting your cat’s stomach, gut or bowels.

Cannabidiol is a phytocannabinoid that has been shown to have a prominent effect on numerous ailments – including epilepsy, arthritis and cancer.  Remedies containing CBD achieve this by interacting with your pet’s endocannabinoid system. Almost all animals, like people, have an endocannabinoid system; this network of neurotransmitters is integral to physiological processes like memory, mood, pain, stress and appetite.

CBD can help your pet by producing anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, antipsychotic, antispasmodic and analgesic effects indirectly – that is, CBD interacts with a cat’s ECS (Endocannabinoid System) opposite to THC which directly binds to the Cannabinoid Receptors of the body.  This does two things: makes the positive remedial properties more bioavailable to your cat; and lessens or negates the psychoactive effects, such as those associated with THC ingestion.

As you can see by the scope of ailments that are affected by CBD, it is clear how introducing CBD into your cat’s routine can benefit their internal system.
