Hello and thank you for using this site to help you. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you today.
Because you know that she ate the hair it is possible you are dealing with an obstruction of the bowel. When hair gets wet it sticks together so this could have happened when it was swallowed. An obstruction would show signs of lack of appetite, vomiting, change in stool or stool habits and lethargy.
The only way to know for sure if there is a blockage is to have an x ray done. A blockage may need surgery.
