My new kitten (4.5 months) is coughing like she will vomit; I assume from past experience that this could be a hairball. I bought some of the gel for this, but it says only for cats >6months of age.

Any recommendations?

Thanks,

Valerie

has the kitten been checked for worms? sometimes this type coughing can be a sign of a belly full of worms..

hairball - worms?

She was dewormed by the shelter with strongid, but that could mean they want to come up now after dying or something?

Thanks!

how long ago and did they get them all, (the worms can give the same full feeling as a hairball) looking at the length of fur on your kitten, hair balls could be going on, I would consult a vet. most vets will check a just fecal (very cute pointed kitty)
