Customer Question

She is a bit of a puker anyway (11 yrs old) today I found a hairball and for first time it had blood on it
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know what to do about this bleeding. I'll connect you ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the cat?
Customer: She's eating and drinking , possibly drinking more than usual but hard to tell
