- Should I take my cat to the vets?
If you are worried about the health of your cat it is always recommended that you take them to the vet. It can be very difficult to know if an animal is suffering, so it is kindest for your pet to take them as soon as possible.
Your vet will be able to tell you if there is a problem and if there is they can begin treatment immediately. This will mean that your cat will not be suffering. If there is not a problem with your cat then the vet will be able to put your mind at rest and advise you on anything you can do to stop the thick saliva.
- What is the thick saliva coming from my cat's mouth?
It is possible that your cat has eaten something that it should not have eaten, such as a chemical or inedible substance. You cat's body will have this kind of reaction as the body tried to get rid of any last traces of the substance. Keep an eye out for anything that they may be eating and remove any possibilities.
It may be that your cat is feeling sick. A cat will have a similar response as some human responses and, like we do, they will have more saliva when they are feeling sick. This is to help the body smoothly remove something in the stomach that does not agree with the cat.
Try grooming your cat to remove as much excess fur as you can. It may be that your cat is malting and as it grooms itself it will end up with fur balls that could result in excess saliva.
