How to Reduce Cat Hairballs

Not only can hairballs get stuck in your cat's throat, but they can also become stuck in the small intestine blocking the digestive tract. In severe cases of blockage, your cat could require surgery to have the hair removed. But don't worry! You can help reduce your cat's risk by following these simple steps on removing existing hairballs and preventing hairballs from forming

Eliminate existing hairballs

For existing hairballs we recommend using a laxative such as Laxatone or Petromalt Hairball Remedy, which helps to expel hairballs. (Note: These products contain sugar. Speak to your veterinarian first before giving to a diabetic cat.)

Prevent hairballs from forming

To help reduce the formation of hairballs, consider giving your cat an Omega 3 supplement like Super Pure Omega 3. Omega 3 fatty acids are helpful in maintaining your cat's skin and coat health, reducing the amount of shedding, a key factor in the formation of hairballs. We also recommend grooming your cat regularly with the FURminator deShedding Tool for Cats to remove any excess hair. The less dead hair your cat can ingest, the less likely it is for hairballs to form.
