My 11 month old threw up a big hairball yesterday. Huge. Like a 7 inch sausage. And rest of his breakfast. Day before had diarrhea. Pooped late yesterday a d looked normal. Ate this am hungrily. Usual a.ount . Drank. Took for walk.peed. no poop. Called Ontario vet yesterday since we are in Florida and vet here closed for Christmas. Home vet said if got rid of it should be ok. Monitor. Needless to say we are worried about. Never seen this in previous dogs. Only in cats. We don't want to rush him to vet at.
It's close and 24 7. But it will scare him if not necessary. Hoping can take him to our reg vet here on Tuesday. Help.
Anybody have any experience with?

Luckily he has coughed it all up. This older thread is on hairballs in dogs:
