Our 9 year old female cat, Bunnymarie, is at the vets right now. She started throwing up and had loose bowels the other morning. I took her to the vet and had her checked. After checking her temperature( a adventure in it's own) they decided to keep her overnight. that evening they called and said they sedated her and gave her a enema. There was a lot of impaction. But there is a 4" blockage they can't seem to dislodge. Yesterday they gave her laxatives hoping to move it through. He is reluctant to operate because of the trauma involved. We have taken our cats to him for many years and I wonder if this the correct procedure to follow. Oh yes, Bun is a fairly long haired cat and both my wife and I believe the blockage is a hairball. I guess we are looking fro sme reinforcment that the right procedures are being done. Thanks for ANY help.
