DAVID ELBEZE, DVM, MRCVS
A. the sickness can be related to the excessive grooming - due to hairball formation in the stomach. The reason for the excessive grooming should be investigated (sores, fleas, worms, anal gland impaction, chronic diarrhea, allergies..) and treated. Some cats are excessive groomers in nature, in this case he should get a nutritional supplement for hairballs.
