Dogs and Cats who eat too fast often throw up afterwards. Obviously you want to stop them from doing that. These special food dishes force them to ear around the objects, slowing them down a bit. It is simple and effective!
If your cat throws up after it eats, you should probably take it to the vet, just to be safe. But a lot of times, throwing up after eating is simply a result of eating too much too quickly. Eating quickly is less common in cats that have food left out 24/7, and less common in single cat homes. However, even these cats may eat too fast depending on their personality.DEAR DR. FOX: I saw your recent column about a cat eating too fast and then vomiting. We had the same problem, and our vet suggested spreading out the wet food on a large platter -- it has been a great success with our cats. I also observe their eating and have certain times that the cats know are for food. This has really worked wonders. I have five cats who range in age from 4 to 10 years old. -- M.W., St. LouisIn multi-cat and multi-pet homes cats will eat too fast so that they can make sure to eat all of their food before another animal comes along and decides to eat it for them! You can slow down each animal’s eating by simply isolating them for 20 to 30 minutes to let them eat alone and in peace.A sudden change in diet, furballs, being fed dry kibble (a non-species appropriate diet), eating too fast, food allergies, etc. are some of the more common reasons a cat will barf. All have easy "fixes."First, we have Steena. She says, “My cat eats too fast and then throws up. How can I get him to slow down? Even buying a special slow-feed bowl didn’t work because he just eats around the protrusions.” Before we weren't sure if he was vomiting or regurgitating; now we know for sure that he is eating too much too fast, and then regurg. We have tried just putting a few kibbles (like 10) in his dish at a time, and waiting until those are gone before re-filling, but it's not making a difference. My Cat does that off and on. About a year ago I had her to the Vet and they took all these expensive ultrasounds and discovered nothing. She was just sensitive to certain brands of food. She eats natural dry food now, but still does it sometimes when she eats too fast. I read that if you put a bit of water on dry food, it expands the food and they can't eat as fast, so they do not barf. It works with my Cat.A big reason, though, is that when you eat too fast, the stomach doesn’t have time to catch up with the brain so it thinks it’s still hungry—and everyone continues to eat. That can lead to obesity—and that results in health problems for your pet, even shortening her life by over two years.Another very common reason cats throw up is they eat too fast. Your kitty is a quadruped –his esophagus is horizontal rather than vertical. Food can slap against the lower esophageal sphincter and cause regurgitation of whole, undigested food several minutes after it’s consumed. Slowing down gobbling will help.
