Yes, she does sometimes lick her fur. And she doesn't like knots so she tends to chew them off! I keep her very short for this reason (she's got a bichon coat that gets easily matted), but in January I'm afraid she'll be too cold if I cut her short. I asked about hairballs because these were the very same symptoms my cat had years ago.
Is there anything I could feed her to help her pass any hair in her stomach? ( the cat has a tube of laxatone that made a big difference for her).
