My Cat seems to be choking but nothing comes up

by Jennifer
(Austin, Texas, USA)

Several times a day my cat seems to heave, like he is choking, but nothing is coming up. It wears him out and it happens several times within a day. I brush him daily, vaccum to keep hair away from him...Not sure what to do!

Please help!!

Answer by Kate
well if he has digested some hair anyway this may have formed into a hairball which he is trying to heave up.

Sometimes this does take a few days and in some cases it may need help from a vet if it is particularly large.

i have a page about hairballs here which you may find of further help

If there is still no change a few more days then i would suggest that he may need to see a vet. As he will either need some help with the hairball or it may be caused by something else entirely.

Hope he is better soon

best wishes Kate
