Anti-Nausea Medication for Cats

Updated November 21, 2016

When your cat is ill and throwing up, it makes you both unhappy. Depending on the reason your cat is throwing up, your veterinarian can recommend an anti-nausea medication to make life better for your cat and yourself.

Function

Anti-nausea medication is meant to settle your cat's stomach and prevent vomiting, or at least keep it to a minimum.

Types

Prescription varieties of anti-nausea medication include Reglan Rx, Tagamet Rx and Propulsid Rx. There are also over-the-counter natural/herbal options like Homeopet Digestive Upsets.

Effects

Depending on the medication being used, it can stimulate stomach/intestinal mobility, prevent stomach acid from entering the oesophagus, or prevent vomiting in cats who have other diseases such as renal failure or cancer.

Side Effects

Allergies to the medication, behavioural changes, constipation, mild sedation, or drug interaction with other medications being used are all potential side effects of using anti-nausea medication on your cat.

Warning

Consult your veterinarian before administering any medication to your cat, whether it is over-the-counter or prescription. Contact your veterinarian immediately if your cat's condition worsens or if your cat experiences a reaction to the medication you have administered.
