Help! My cat has been vomiting at least 2-3 times a week, several times a day for almost a year now…She makes this awful “screaming” noise just before she vomits, and while she’s throwing up, it looks like it’s very violent & painful. She’s a very loving, playful kitty, and acts normal when she’s not throwing up. Recently, she’s started throwing up more often (her record is 7 times in one day) and now has what looks like gravel in her vomit. She’s not eating her kitty litter, and I haven’t seen her eat anything foreign.
My vet has done many tests, but has no clue what could be wrong with her, and has just given her a shot of cortisone to help “correct” the problem. He says if the shot stops the vomiting, he’ll prescribe pills for her. Is this good for my cat? Is this solving the problem, or just covering it up?
