    Beau has a hairball

    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!

    Beau's Hairball

    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.

    That's what I do and it works like a charm.

    Thinking of you today Nancy and sending postive healing thoughts your way. Please check in when you can.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!
