Yes, Violets_are_Blue is correct, this community is for information only and unfortunately pets can't be diagnosed or treated over the internet. Community members also cannot share their medications with others. Please contact a vet for help with your goat and let us know how you and your goat are doing once he's been seen by a vet.
Thank you for rescuing your kitten. I sometimes think that when a kitten has been a starving one like yours probably was that it's ingrained on them that they have to fight other kittens or other animals for their food. Have you tried giving him treats when he's by himself so he doesn't feel anxious and feel like he has to steal food from the other pets?
I'm sure that others here will also have some ideas for you!
Her clinic has a cat patient named "Sunshine" (you can see a cute photo of this beautiful Calico cat in her blog) and "Sunshine" who has intestional cancer also developed an intestional blockage due to a hairball. Sunshine also has been diagnosed with exocrine pancreatic insufficiency too.
So the moral of the story is brush your cat, use a deshedding tool, and give your cats plenty of treats that reduce hair balls.
Have hairballs ever been a problem with your cats or dogs for that matter?
My first two cats were Siamese but they would regularly upchuck hair balls along with their dinner. My current big boy mutt doesn't seem to have hairball problems. He enjoys being groomed, he especially likes to have a sticky lint roller moved along his fur. It's amazing how much loose fur those things can pick up!
My dog however chews off her long golden retriever fluffy tail fur and throws it up! Can I just say Ewwww...
How about you and your pets? Are hairballs a problem for you?
