how to get rid of cat hair that goes into the throat and sticks?

1 Answer:

Hello Yati,

Any foreign object that enters the throat (respiratory tract) will cause a cough reflex (like a choking person). If the size is large a person will have difficulty breathing and sounds like loud snoring when he breathes.

Cat hair that enters the mouth may be able to stick to the pharynx area (back of the mouth) before the throat or most likely if you have swallowed the cat fur will enter the esophagus (digestive tract) not to the throat (respiratory tract). Cat hair that enters the digestive tract will be removed with feces in an undigested form and does not cause any harmful effects on the digestive tract.

If you feel the sensation of a foreign body in the back of your mouth, try gargling while gazing up a few moments then urinating. If a foreign body sensation is around the neck (possibly entering the esophagus), you can drink more water, swallow foods that are soft / sticky like spoonful rice / bananas so that the cat's hair stuck to the esophagus can go down to the stomach and will later be processed and removed with feces.

However, if you cough and continue to have complaints of shortness of breath you should consult a doctor, to see where the foreign object is. Because if you enter the respiratory tract, examination is required with a special camera that is inserted into the airway to see and retrieve the object.

Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
