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
Great Product This product works well with our cat. Drastically reduced the amount of hairballs. She even likes the flavor and she is very picky. 11/11/2014
Wonderful My furchild has had issues with constipation and my vet gave me Laxatone a few weeks back and it has worked great. PussKitty loves it, she licks it right off my finger. Wonderful product. 11/03/2014
This is a great product, Ive been giving it to my 7 year old tabby, the vet showed me a trick in giving it to her cause she will not eat it on her own. Put your thumb and forefinger on each side of her mouth and open it, she wont be able to close her mouth, make sure you dab the Laxitone on your other fore finger then wipe it on the roof of her mouth using her top front teeth as a scraper to get it all in her mouth, then release her and she will lick it off the roof of her mouth for a few minutes. This product saved my cats life, she had a terrible hair ball blockage in her intestines. I give it twice a week, shes getting use to "Medicine Time". I strongly recommend this product. 10/22/2014

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! :)
