Customer Question

He is gagging like he has a hair ball or something in his throat but doesn't throw up. He has been eating, drinking, and going to bathroom like normal.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the cat eat anything unusual?
Customer: As far as I know, no.
JA: What is the cat's name and age?
Customer: Boo and he is around 10
JA: What is the cat's name?
Customer: Boo
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the cat?
Customer: He had most of his teeth removed in 2011 because previous owners didn't take care of them. Other than that, he sees the vet regularly and he is healthy.

I am sorry Boo is not feeling well.

It sounds like he has a sore throat.

Give him two drops of honey every 4 hours. It will sooth his throat.

It is a remarkable healing agent:

Remove all dry food and any wet with chunks, pieces or shreds.

Feed only smooth pate canned food or baby food chicken with no onion or garlic

If he gets dehydrated give him tuna water drained from the can.

Please let me know how he is doing .
