Hairball problem

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Meeko and Sasha keep throwing up hairballs.
What can I give then for the hairballs?
Coco and Oreo never get them but they do not shed lie the other 2 cats.

Butter works great for Bugsy...

Butter like Carol said, or Katalax and a good quality fur ball kibble like Royal Canin Intensive hairball, because it works twice as much at eliminating them than other kibbles, and i must admit it does

Thanks to both of you for the ideas.
Sasha and Meeko are shedding like crazy and I hate stepping in barfed up hairballs.
I will try the butter and get hairball food.

Mine are the same with the shedding I brush them every day when it's warm like this and the amount of fur i get in the brush is unreal!. I think if this is what i'm getting in a brush, what's in their stomach

It's sounds awful, but with the Royal Canin you can actually see the fur in their stools!. Can you tell i inspect?!

These all work well, but my question is, do they affect the cat's bowel movements? Right now everyone is great - no loose stools, but Scaredy is barfing tortie fur everywhere, too. Will that stuff mess up a kitty's system in that way?

(Thanks, MTM, for letting me hijack your thread just a bit!)

They only get it now and again because i've heard too much of the Katalax means they don't absorb the vitamins that's in their food. But i think this is only if you use it every day week in week out.

How much and how often?
post #10 of 11
I only give it to Bugsy when I notice he is starting to have a problem; like as soon as he starts coughing.
I give about 1/3tsp. If the problem continues in a couple of days I give some more. He usually needs it once every 1 1/2month - 2 months.

Do you grow cat grass at all? Mine rarely get hairballs anymore. They always have cat grass to snack on.
