Hairballs, Hacks, Gags and Gas:
I decided this was the purrfect time to continue with the tummy info.
We love greeting our awesome pet parents with wet kisses, happy tail wags, loud purrs.
Sometimes though, we greet them with hairballs on the carpet or vomited garbage on the couch.
Our pet parents may think finding a pile of vomit around the house every few days is “normal”, but as Animal MD posted the other day it can be a sign of a serious issue.
The important thing that our pet parents need to know is that many seemingly “normal” digestive problems are best checked out by Dr Bahns or Dr Boller. We know there’s a lot of information on the Internet that our pet parents can read, even though they should only be watching kitten videos, but nothing replaces a face (pet parent) to face (Animal MD) to face (furry family member) visit with Animal MD.
Well there is no need to fear as Dr Bahns and Dr Boller can discuss and answer all of our pet parents questions. During the checkup, Dr Bahns or Dr Boller will purrform a “hands-on” inspection of our abdomen by feeling each of the organs and evaluating the shape, size, and position.
They will listen through a stethoscope(I know..it looks scary but it isn’t) for any abnormal gut sounds. Dr Bahns or Dr Boller may want to take a look at our poop to check for parasites and harmful bacteria. I know, kinda odd, we work so hard to bury our poop unlike those silly doggies that leave their poop out for all to see.
It’s all about digestion and it’s how to keep us healthy!
So have you pet parents schedule that checkup so Dr Bahns or Dr Boller can determine what’s normal and what’s not when it comes to their furry family member’s digestive tract.
Just think, after your visit, you may never leave a hairball gift ever again.
