He has been trying to get it up all day. I can't take him to the vet because I am having surgery tomorrow and won't be home for a while.

Give him some Petromalt (or whatever petroleum based, malt-flavored or other flavored) hairball remedy you have available. That should help him pass it. Poor baby and good luck to you on your surgery!

Poor Beau! Our wonderful vet told me that if you don't have any hairball treatment handy, use vaseline. Put about a quarter teaspoon on his upper lip. As he licks it off, it will get his plumbing moving right along. I tried it on Groucho and it worked. Doctor said hairball treatments are basically flavored vaseline. She told me to put some on Groucho twice a day. So sorry to hear about your surgery, my thoughts and prayers are with you!

If you can't get to a store for hairball remedy, give him good old vaseline (pure white petroleum jelly). If he won't lick it, stick it right up on the roof of his mouth.

Good luck with YOUR surgery.
