Pet Talk: A hairy situation for cat owners

      During Pet Talk on 7&4 News Today, Dr. Jen Klabunde talked about controlling the problem of hairballs with your cats. Dr. Klabunde says there is a distinct difference when it comes to hairballs and vomit with cats.

      • Hairball

        long and cylindrical

        cat acts normal afterwards

        occurs at random intervals

      • Vomit

        food like or watery

        cat acts ill afterwards

        usually persists until seen by a vet
