Wed, 22 Jan 2014 12:00:00 GMT —
Dr. Jen Klabunde from Northwood Animal hospital offers insight into the world of pets and tips on daily pet issues. Catch Dr. Klabunde every Wednesday morning on 7&4 News Today at 6:20 and 6:40.
This week Jen breaks down what to look for when your cat may be sick and throwing up. There are actually very significant differences between a hairball, and cat vomit.
Hairballs are long and cylindrical, and you cat will continue to act normal. This will also happen randomly opposed to vomiting which may be food-like or watery. The cat may act ill and this vomiting will continue until it is treated.
The kitten featured is available for adoption as well as many others at the Benzie County Animal Shelter. See the full interview for more details.
