Cat is vomiting - I have a few questions

Hello all! Im new to this community and im hoping I can get some help with my furry friend.

My cat, Moo, is about 7 years old, and large (though he is a very large cat, nonetheless he does have some extra skin from being fatter in the past, and he is currently at 18 pounds and at a healthy weight according to his vet).

Recently, for about the past week, Moo has been regurgitating much more frequently. About an hour after he eats, he will vomit. Before and after vomiting, he is his regular self. He also lets me pet his belly without any issues whatsoever, so it really doesn't seem like he's all that sick. Also, he mostly only vomits after eating wet food. The dry food (he loves) is "Hills" Prescription multi-nutrition w/d. I try to give him wet food at least once a day because Ive always read that a sole dry food diet isn't good for your cat (I also want some advice about this, is this even true? why do people say that?)

Im suspecting this is because of a hairball that has yet to be passed or regurgitated, but my girlfriend thinks we should just stop giving him wet food completely. Im hesitant about that because of my previous statement. By the way, the wet food is Blue Wilderness (salmon and trout flaked w/ gravy).

Im here to answer any questions you may have that I missed! Dont worry, I am taking him to the vet this week for a wellness check up already so I have that covered!
