National-Hairball-Awareness-Day-Last-Friday-in-April-1024x512

Celebrated on the last Friday in April, it is listed as one of the Pet Health Awareness Events of the American Veterinary Medical Association.  The formation of hairballs is a common feline condition that is brought on by self-grooming and the associated ingestion of hair.  While not usually an issue (except to your carpet), hairballs can occasionally collect in the stomach or small intestine, and can cause a potentially life-threatening blockage in the digestive system. Don’t wait to contact your veterinarian if your cat continues to gag, retch or vomit without producing a hairball, loses his appetite, has diarrhea or constipation, or is lethargic.
