Customer Question

my 19 yr. old Ragdoll is arthritic, loses urine and feces in her bed during the night on occasion but is eating & drinking about normal.Big problem is accumulation of huge hair mats that come back faster then we can treat them and she has never been a problem with mats before. Can this be a symptom of illness?

Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? Any vomiting or diarrhea? Have you noticed any weight loss?
