Cat Farting: What To Do If Your Cat Is Farting Too Much? The Vet'S Office Tells You What You Need To Do To Stop It
Cats have digestive tracts that are quite similar to a human or a dog. Excess gas may be produced from eating certain gas-producing foods, diseases, or parasite infestations. Swallowed air can also lead to farting or belching. When a cat doesn't get rid of the gas, pressure in the intestines causes discomfort. The treatment for cat farting can vary depending on the cause. Some cats have less gas on wet or dry food or do better with different ingredients. Diets that contain large amounts of common gas- producing foods, such as legumes, may also be contributing. Bring a fecal sample in with you to be checked for parasites such as coccidia, roundworms, and hookworms. Cats fart when they're anxious or frightened. It's normal, albeit smelly, behavior. Farting cats do best with wet food that's meat-based. Often, grain-based foods can cause gassiness. Avoid feeding foods containing lactose. If you think your pet is sick, call your veterinarian immediately. They have examined your pet, know the pet's health history, and can make the best recommendations.
