Hello. My name is Carole Wilbourn. I'm the cat therapist here in New York City. In this clip we're going to talk about hairball blockage. So, let's take Orion. He normally doesn't have any hairballs, because I brush him daily. In fact, he loves to be brushed. And brushing is a good way to collect the fur. It's a very good way to collect the fur so your cat doesn't have a hairball attack. Signs of a hairball attack could either be coughing or even vomiting up the hairball. Aside from brushing your cat, as I'm doing with Orion, a pat of butter or perhaps a gel, added to your cats diet will help the fur to pass through gently. Because your cat ingests a lot, a lot of fur when he grooms. However, a cough doesn't always mean hairballs. So, if any doubt, do consult your vet for the best remedy. Once again, this is Carole Wilbourn, the cat therapist in New York City.
