I've tried everything. She constantly either has hairballs, or eats little bits of plastic that we didn't know were around. As a result, she throws up! I've tried every trick possible to stop her from puking on the carpet. Lame!!!

  • haha, my dog is actually really good about going into our bathroom to barf on the vinyl floor if he is feeling sick, but of course sometimes he doesn't quite make it. Thankfully I have berber that is pre-treated and easy to clean.

  • I believe that cats, and dogs, puke on the carpet as an act of rebellion. If you figure out the trick to get them to stop you could be rich!! :-) But yes, go get some salmom flavored hairball OTC meds at the pet store or Wal-mart. My cats loved that stuff.

  • my cat, don vito puss was my nemesis for years. nothing like walkingout of your room in the am and stepping in a pile of vomit or having to keep your furniture covered because of vomit. i tried every hairball rmedy known to man, gels,pastes and even foods, to no avail. if i caught him in the midst of puking i would grab him and run to the kitchen. now we have a new house and a large garage which the cats now reside in. and i changed their food and avoid any kind of fish or seafood on reccommendation from another who had suffered the puking blues. to my astonishment, the puking hasnt completely stopped.. now he only pukes once in a blue moon, i think he was sensitive to the fish/seafood which helped contribute insome way to his puking... dont ask me, i just know i took her advice and got them new food and now he isnt a puker and he is a totally opposite cat than he was now he is happy playful and fat.not much puking going on
