Over-eating + hairballs

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Just as the description says one of my cats has been eating more than normal lately and this morning when I woke up I found she threw up two times, once by my computer, it was whiteish with almost no partially digested food in it.(She must have gotten into my milk I left on my desk because it was knocked over) And this morning I awoke to a HUGE pile of standard cat puke(yellow/greenish with food bits) however it also had 2 hairballs, one pretty large and the other not so big.

Is there some way I should treat her without going to the vet? Can I get some hairball treatment & laxative from the pet store or something? Any help is appreciated. She is acting totally normal, she runs and plays fine with the other animals in the house.

You can buy a tube of Petromalt at the pet store, and please keep your kitty away from milk. Most cats are lactose intolerant.

It sounds like she's already gotten rid of the current problem, but Petromalt should help prevent any further hairballs. Daily brushing helps, too, if she will allow it.

Hairball gel can help prevent as well as brushing... I use hairball food ... If kitty eats fast elavate the dish or and put a rock or marble in it to slow them down... if anymore colored stuff go to the vet

How about changing her food to a hair-ball control type for a while?
