I have carpet in my room this is the only room my cat stays

Customer Question

I have carpet in my room this is the only room my cat stays in. The problem is she is vomiting hair and fur a few times a week. I vacuum every other day to keep the carpet as clean as possible but I think she's swallowing a lot of hair and fur when she stays under the bed. I'm afraid this is hurting her stomach and her throat what can I do to help her? Unfortunately my landlord does not want to remove the carpeting so that is not an option.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

Do you see her grooming excessively?

Or does she have any obvious bald areas?
