Q: Is it normal for my cat to vomit once a week?
We are getting more and more evidence in cats that chronic vomiting is not “just hairballs” or “he eats too fast.” A recent article in Veterinary Medicine cited a study of 100 cats that were chronic vomiters. Of these 100 cats, only 1 was found to be normal on intestinal biopsy. The other 99 cats had abnormal intestinal walls. Of those cats with abnormal biopsy findings, 49 percent had inflammatory bowel disease and 47 percent had intestinal cancer.
