Cat Hairball Treats Reviews

Hey Cat Owners, you know you will eventually end up finding or stepping into a cat hairball on the floor! You wonder to yourself...what can I do to help my cat out with this problem? The answer is to give your cat - Cat Hairball Treats.

The issue with cat hairball treats are that there are so many of them out there to buy. Which one should you pick? I thought I would write product reviews of a few cat hairball treats to help you decide which one might work for you and your cat.

Greenies Smartbites Hairball Control Cat Treats - by The Nutro Company

My cats do like these Greenies Hairball Control Treats a lot! They would eat the whole bag if I let them! Greenies Smartbites Hairball Control Cat Treats give a balance of plant based fibers to help diminish development of hairballs forming in their digestive tract. Greenies are made with natural ingredients. It features natural fibers, premium proteins, fish oil and coconut meal. The negative to this product is the amount you need to give your cat in order for it to work for hairball control. i.e. - The recommended dose is 12 treats all at once per day. The treats come in Tuna or Chicken flavors. There is a Guarantee with this product. "If you or your cat isn’t 100% satisfied, you’ll get your money back. Guaranteed."

Vet's Best Hairball Relief Digestive Aid - by Veterinarian's Best

The best thing I like about this product is that there is no petroleum-based ingredients to help eliminate hairballs in your cat! In the research I have done with cat hairball treats, petroleum-based ingredients are not the best thing to give your cat. This formula, in Vet's Best Aid, helps prevent and eliminate hairballs using herbs that lubricate naturally. Some of the ingredients includes: slippery elm bark, marshmallow and papaya. Most cats enjoy this liver flavored treat! The one draw back seems to be some inconsistent thickness of the pills. This creates a more challenging situation for the owner to break-up and give the pill to your cats. It is recommended that you break up the pill; this activates the natural flavorings of the pills. There is a money back Guarantee with this cat hairball treat product.

Pet Naturals Hairball - by Pet Naturals of VT

Cats enjoy the taste of this Chicken Liver flavor treat. This product does help support cat hair and skin health along with GI tract health because it has Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. The addition of cranberry helps keep the urinary tract healthy too! This treat contains no herbals or mineral oil, which both ingredients can give your cat an upset digestion and hydration in your cats. Instead, the product includes zinc, this helps fatty acid metabolism. In some situations, there have been cats that do vomit up the treat within 5 minutes after giving it to them. Make sure you keep an eye on your cat when you first give the treat to your cat. There is no Guarantee with this product.

Furball Relief Semi-Moist Treats for Cats

I always search for semi-moist cat treats only. The reason for this is that one of my cats doesn't have her top canine teeth! She needs a soft type treat in order to chew it. I don't want her to choke on a 'hard' treat! That would be terrible! Furball Relief Natural cat treats help your cat's digestive system. This treat is natural without the wheat, soy, by-products or petroleum. The treat really good for your cats because it has probiotics in them. The feeding directions are for cats up to 5 lbs give 2 treats per day, cats 5 lbs to 10 lbs - give 3 treats per day and cats 10 lbs and up give 4 to 5 treats per day. These treats are available in a Chicken flavor. There is no Guarantee with this product. The Furball Relief Treats are my cats very favorite! They come running when they hear me opening the bag! I highly recommend them!!

Friskies Cat Treats Tender Hairball Remedy - by Friskies

This treat helps prevent and eliminate hairballs in your adult cat only. This treat is not recommended for kittens/cats under six month old. Each treat contains does contain petrolatum to help lubricate your cat's digestive tract. The petrolatum helps control the development of hairballs while helping in the riddance of existing hairballs.

The definition of petrolatum is: "a translucent gelatinous substance obtained from petroleum; used as a lubricant and in medicine as an ointment base and protective dressing. Also called mineral jelly/petroleum jelly". Each treat contains 90 mg of petrolatum.

Friskies suggests feeding your cat the treats all at one time. "To Help Eliminate Hairballs in Adult Cats: Feed three to six pieces daily until the signs disappear. To Help Prevent Hairballs in Adult Cats: Feed three to six pieces once or twice a week." This treat is available in Chicken flavor and is made with real chicken. There is no Guarantee with this product. I am not sure I would use this product for my cats due to the fact that it does contain petrolatum in it. I don't feel this is a healthy ingredient for my cat's digestive system personally.

I would rather have my cat eat butter than petrolatum. We do use the Greenies though, but they are not consistently eating them. It seems that grooming them more often (with 4 cats it is a chore) helps more than anything.

Nice review. I used to have cats, but where I live in east Taranaki NZ, we are in a area where kiwis (bird) are and it is better not to have cats, because even the best feed cat will go hunting and that's not good. I love cats and miss them but we can't have everything.

I am sorry to hear you can't have cats where you live. :-( My cats are indoor cats only since they are declawed in the front paws.

That's a great idea, a indoor cat, but I don't think my husband would be very happy abut that, they would still get outside, we live in the country and the doors are left open in the day time, only closed in the winter.
