He is refusing his tea-time pellets and any treats and is sat hunched up in his litter tray.

He has eaten well during the day and has had lots of hay.

He does this every few months when he has a bad moult and I think ingesting the hair gives him tummy ache. He also had a brush earlier which always makes him throw a paddy.

He has had some metacam and metaclopramide and we are now waiting for it to kick in and him start brightening up.

I have literally no idea whether it helps, and I have heard people say yes and no on here, but we give Beau pineapple tablets (bromelain I think it's called) from Holland & Barrett, the enzyme is supposed to help with breaking down hair balls. Might help?

2am and he has eaten all his pellets and snatched a treat off me! It's amazing what a bit of metacam can do!
