Various factors, including hunger, slow digestion, intestinal parasites, upset stomach, gas, and more, can cause cat stomach gurgling. These sounds, coming from your little one’s belly, are your cat’s way of telling you that something’s not quite right in their gut. In this blog, we’ll dive into the world of these and other signs of digestive issues, providing insights and solutions to ensure your kitty’s tummy stays happy and healthy.

Diet Management for Digestive Support

A good starting point when addressing your kitty’s tummy health is diet management. Gas stuck on your little one’s belly and flatulence can cause sounds that point out possible dietary issues. In this case, discuss with your vet about adjusting your little one’s diet to reduce gas-inducing food.

Cat stomach gurgling sounds are a sign that something’s not quite right in their tummy.

Slow digestion can also lead to discomfort and gurgling sounds in your little one. Diet changes can also help address this concern. Feeding your kitty smaller, more frequent meals, providing plenty of fresh water, and incorporating fiber-rich foods into their diet can aid with digestion.  

These are some other diet tips that can help promote a healthier digestive system in your cat and avoid tummy distress:

  • Choose a high-quality, well-balanced cat food.
  • Avoid abrupt diet changes.
  • Keep your cat hydrated.
  • Provide fiber-rich ingredients, like pumpkin.
  • Regular exercise and playtime can aid digestion.
  • Consult your vet for guidance on any dietary supplements.

Natural supplements like the ones at NHV Digestion Kit can also help. This supplement bundle is designed to help our pets better absorb nutrients, help stimulate the metabolism, and help relieve inflammation along the digestive tract. The kit contains NHV Multi Essentials, which can also help fill any nutritional voids, and NHV Yucca, which can offer support in case of gas, nausea, inappetence, and indigestion.

Addressing Possible Causes of Cat Stomach Gurgling Sounds

If your cat’s stomach sounds seem to be due to hunger, try offering small, nutritious snacks or dividing their daily meals into smaller portions throughout the day to keep their tummy satisfied. If you notice your kitty is not eating as much as they should or vomiting, please speak to your trusted vet about a possible root cause. In the meantime, NHV Yucca works as a natural appetite support and can help with nausea.

In addition to the cat stomach gurgling sounds, watch for signs like constipation, diarrhea, lethargy, and abnormal stool. If any of these symptoms are present, speak to a specialist to rule out any severe digestive problems or underlying conditions like food allergies, infections, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and pancreatitis. For natural support, NHV TumFlora can help address IBD, NHV Plantaeris can help your feline friend in cases of diarrhea, NHV Maris can manage constipation, and NHV Probiotic & Prebiotic can promote a healthy gut.

Lastly, tummy issues can be caused by intestinal parasites. If you suspect a parasitic infestation, consult your veterinarian for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan. Worms and other parasites can cause digestive upset and other health issues, so early intervention is crucial. At NHV, we have Inulin-PK, which can work alongside the vet-prescribed medication for gentle deworming support and can also help overall gastrointestinal function.

Now you know how a cat stomach gurgling sound may be a subtle cry for help. By paying close attention to your feline friend’s signals, understanding the potential causes, and seeking professional veterinary care when needed, you are closer to ensuring a healthy tummy and a happy life! We are here to help you through this journey!
