I'm having to use more and more pressure with my right thumb to get the select and drag feature of my trackpad to work. Is there anything I can do to try to fix this before I have to spend tons of money on a repair? It may have dog hair in it... Thank you for any advice!

Does the trackpad work correctly in every other way? – DGund May 5 '12 at 18:35
