Nona has been dry coughing for months. Our vet says it's fur balls. We've lubed her with Laxatone for days on end. We purchased a Furminator comb and still she wheezes. Her waste has always been in small pieces, and hard. (The vet says this is a sign of fur balls.) So Nona, now age eight years, is suffering from her own Nebelung fur.
Her Nebelung fur gets dense and strong when wet. I've described her fur as being like cement when it gets wet. I didn't realize just how correct I was...
Wish us luck in clearing her fur balls because the last resort option is surgery. And we definitely don't want to go there.
