Can I please get some advice? My darling little girl started the classic furball hack but instead of improving it only got worse over 3 days with her really straining and being miserable. I have taken her to the vet who vaccinated and wormed her and recommended catlax to solve the problem. Midge has never done this before and I am really worried about her. She is drinking a lot of water as well, this only started with the cough. Midge is slightly overweight and has been the same weight for 3 years (6.8kg), she is a big cat with a tonne of fur. I have reduced the amount of dry food she is getting although it is a mix of several types of furball food which she has always been fed in the 9 years since I rescued her. She's never had this problem before and has always managed to bring up furballs when needed (and I've stepped in several of them!). I intend to slowly convert her to a grain free diet in order to help her digestive system.
I am very worried about my furkid and hope someone can offer some advice. She still has the cough but it has improved as is not as severe, I've been giving her a minute amount of catlax (2cm) per day and have not found any hairballs as yet. Midge is using her litter tray as normal.
Thanks in advance,
Larissa and Midge
