The best thing, along with the Furminator. Cats love it and it helps the hairballs come out one way or the other. The Furminator lessens the need, but if the need exists, Laxatone does the trick. And 9 out of 10 cats I've known have loved it. My only concern is it's probably not the best thing for their teeth but regurgitating is probably worse for teeth and overall health. 06/13/2011
Not good The product I've been using for a few years now seems not to be available so I tried the Laxatone tuna for my cat. It is so thick that no matter what you try to do to it ( and we tried several different things) he can not get it off the plate or any other surface to be able to eat it. It was a complete waste of money but more importantly I now have nothing to use for my cats problems. This is not a good product. 03/22/2011
The best I was happy to find the original Laxatone I have used for years here. Most sellesr have switched to the new all natural Laxatone. The all natural is very thick and sticky it choked my cat. which is the opposite of what I wanted. I threw it in the trash. I have used Laxatone for years and found the best way to give it to the cats is holding by my fingers at the jaw line on each side of the mouth. That way they cannot bite down with this flap of skin inin their mouth at the back of the jaw. Your vet can show you how simple it is . I just open, hold, and put blob of it in mouth and rake it off my finger with their teeth. It's fine after they get it in their mouth because they do like the flavor and it gets easier each time you do it as I never seen a cat that did not like the flavor. Keep carrying the original. Cats love it! 12/23/2013
Use on Kitties Paw! I've been reading a lot of the reviews here of people who were unsuccessful with getting their cats to ingest this product. The easiest most fool-proof way is to smear the dose onto the topside of their paw. Cats cannot help BUT to lick anything off their paws; it's a natural reaction and we all know how cats are about grooming themselves. Trust me, they will NOT leave this stuff just slathered onto their paw. I've been a vet tech for 6 years and use Laxatone on my own cat, and have always recommended and used the "paw" method. This product is excellent, and will definitely work to get those hairballs out! Follow the dosing directions to the letter. 12/04/2013
My Maine Coon was 15 this past July, housebound, and without a companion cat. He's devoted to us, and when we're gone even for a week, he starts to get constipated. Laxatone works wonders, not the least of which is that he likes it. We've relied on it for the past four or five week-or-more trips, and he's been fine. But thank goodness for the cat-loving neighbor lady, too, who makes sure he's fed and as happy as he can be when we're gone. 11/06/2013

Answer: 
Did you try the hairball med Laxatone and the cat is still throwing up?

When my cat throws up it is the food nearly every time.

If the laxatone does not stop it which it does not sound like a hair ball, I would switch cat foods.

I have a Maine Coon mix who tends to throw up a lot in the spring. He's also on the heavy side (currently on Prescription Diet for weight loss) and over 10 years old. Which is the better option for his needs?

Answer: 
Both products are great.The Laxatone helps prevent hair from clogging the digestive system, which reduces vomiting and hairballs. The Hairball plus is loaded with omega 3 & 6 fatty acids to help support your cat's G.I. tract. So if your looking for something that does a little more than just hairballs, then the Hairball Plus would be the best thing for your Furry Friend.

Answer: 
Absolutely no problem mixing it in the food. Another great way to administer Laxatone is to rub it on the back of the paw. Cats (of course) are very cleansy so they will start licking their paws to clean it off! :)
