Question about feline digestive issues

My 11 yr old cat has a medium length coat. He has been throwing up or having diarrhea off and on over the past couple months. He eats high quality dry and canned food: Instinct, Origen, Tikki, Weruva & fresh water). I’ve given him petromalt type of hairball relief because he has had hair balls off and on most of his life. I brush him to his limited tolerance. I feel at this point he may need to see a Vet although I haven’t been totally confident with current Vet. I also am having financial problems and can’t afford to go Vet shopping right now. He’s a wonderful cat, very playful and silly. He hasn’t had any changes in activity or hunger. I’m appreciative of any advice or insights you can offer. And lastly, I want you to know how much I wish you were still on tv. I was a faithful viewer. I do realize that in devoting all your time to DELTA, you are offering a wonderful gift to the animal world.



Answer from Dr. Gaylord Brown:
You may want to consider a fiber supplement to address this problem. Vetasyl capsules can be given orally or opened and mixed into the food. They will often help both the hairballs and the episodic diarrhea. Thank you for your interest in the Pet TV episodes!
