Question

My senior cat has a very gurgling stomach. He also has occasional projectile vomiting.

Answer

It’s important to rule out hyperthyroidism. This is a treatable condition, diagnosed by a simple blood test. If the test rules this out, another possible cause would be Inflammatory Bowel Disease, which is often cured by using special hypoallergenic diets. You should take him to your vet for a full health review.
