    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
    works for dogs too Our Akita was stolen and was badly abused. She made it home after 4 nights missing. She was hit at the base of her tail and cannot curl it. She screamed when trying to eliminate, hurt so badly. Our Vet gave us laxatone to help keep things "greased". She does much better after giving this to her - 2 times daily. After home 7 weeks can curl tail abit, but not the way it was. Hopefully with more time she will be able to. If your pet has trouble with elimination, try this. 03/03/2015
    Works great and my cats love it. Try putting Laxatone on your cats canned food...no fuss no muss! My cats eat it with no problem and enjoy the taste. 02/27/2015
    New formula is fine. I have been using Laxatone ORIGINAL flavor for a long time and was distressed when my latest shipment of "original" was a different formula. Now it is maple flavor and "gel." However, to my surprise my cat liked the flavor, and the consistency seems to be a little less thick. Since my cat hates the tuna flavor, I am relieved that the new formula is pleasing to him. I must recommend that this product be given very soon after removing from the tube. It will harden like old-fashioned toothpaste if left exposed to air. 02/12/2015

    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! :)
