Cat Throwing up, NOT losing weight is he eating too fast and not chewing?

by Kellie

My cat keeps throwing up after he eats. He isn't losing any weight, but seems to be right after he eats. It looks as though he might not be chewing the food all the way from the remains of what he throws up. I checked his teeth and they are fine. Any suggestions on getting him to stop? I have 3 other cats and they are all on dry food he is the only one that is doing this.

I had the same problem with my cat years ago. In the end we fed her only dry food and just small amounts at a time. This would mean that even though she eat too fast and did not chew there wasn't enough t make her sick.

I would also recommend that you feed this cat seperate from the other cats. he may be feeling that he has to eat quickly because the other cats may take his food, even if they don't he may be anxious about this. Hopefully over time he will relax and slow down , at which time you can slowly increase his food amount.

If this does not work then I wouls suggest a visit to the vets would be good just in case there is a medical condition involved.

best wishes Kate
