Now.... if you want to help us out mummies meow....you can see if we are having any problems with hairballs, just look for some simple signs like are we:
- vomiting long cigar-shaped material full of hair,
- vomiting food immediately after we eat and then attempt to eat again,
- passing hair in our stools
- not eating or losing some weight
If you see your little loved one having problems vomiting hairballs, you can try theses ideas:
1: Remove all our food and water immediately.
2: If you see any blood in our vomit or it smells wose than usual, contact our veterinarian immediately. If not, go to # 3.
3: Treat us by placing one or two teaspoons of white petroleum jelly our mouth and paws so we can lick it off. Do not give us any mineral oil.
4: Repeat the petroleum jelly treatment once a day while we are having difficulty. Meow....if the problem lasts more than two or three days, contact our veterinarian immediately.
