Hi there and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed, internship-trained veterinarian with 11 years experience in general medicine and emergency and critical care medicine and I would be happy to assist you. Please be patient as there may be slight delays in responses as I research your pet's issue and as I am typing out a response.

Cats can vomit for many reasons, especially when they are older. Let's hope this is just stomach upset and treat it as such, and if things are not getting any better, see your veterinarian for some full blood work and possible xrays. For now... do you have any Prilosec or Pepcid at home?
