When you have a cat, you might have the question: How do I know that a hairball has moved to my cat’s bowel?
If she displays some of these symptoms, she might have a stuck hairball:
- Loss of appetite or only eating small quantities of food at a time.
- Constipation or diarrhoea.
- Hair entwined with the faeces.
- Occasional vomiting.
- Dry coughing or hacking.
- Cylindrical masses on the floor or furniture.
- Depression or lethargy.
- Swollen abdomen.
- Regurgitation of undigested food right after it is eaten.
- Preoccupation with eating grass or plants.
If her symptoms doesn’t clear and she is clearly uncomfortable, take her to the vet.
