Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
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? How long has this been going on for? Any other probles going on with her?
Sorry about the delay for some reason this website was giving me problems so I was unable to respond so I had to switch browsers
As far as the hairballs are concerned you can try hair ball treats or a hairball treatment such as laxatone which you can put on their paws so they are forced to lick it off and see if that helps. However I am concerned about the excessive drinking so you may want to have her evaluated for that. With her age I would be concerned about a few things such as kidney disease, diabetes, etc.
You are welcome. Yes you can get laxatone or hairball treats at most pet stores like petsmart or petco
Let me know if you have any further questions or concerns
