Customer Question

Hi, im pretty certain my cat (a mainecoon mix) has a hairball caught in her throat. She cant keep food down, and is constantly making strange noises and trying to throw up. Her health is deteriorating fast and I don't know what to do, i don't want her to suffer so im afraid that my only option is to put her down.

Were x-rays done with contrast like barium?
