Hairballs Feline

If you are a cat owner like I am, I know you have encountered this problem too: Hairballs Feline! This is a very common problem in all cats. Many of us cat owners have a ton of questions about hairballs, especially how to get rid cat hairballs, how to prevent them and what kind of cat hairball medicine is available? I have done a lot of research into this hairballs feline problem. You could also say cat hairball home remedy.

The first and most important cat hairball home remedy is Grooming! Yes believe it or not, grooming your cat frequently almost daily is the biggest and best thing you can do for them! By grooming your cat(s) this gets the cat's loose hair into the comb or brush, not into their stomach. The most recommended grooming utensil is a Flea Comb! This will get every piece of loose hair possible out of your cat. My cats love getting groomed plus it allows you more bonding time with your cat.

The second cat hairball home remedy is Fresh Clean Water Daily. There is nothing more important to your cat’s digestion.

The next thing you will want to implement is a higher- fiber cat food that is designed to eliminate hairballs. This adds moisture and bulk to your cat’s stool; helping your cat pass their stool easier. Another thing you can try is to give your cat hairball-fighting cat treats. If you do not want to buy a more expensive cat food, you can try adding a small amount of psyllium or other fiber additive to your cat’s canned food several times a week. Something else you can try is to add a teaspoon of canned pumpkin to your cat’s canned cat food several times a week to control hairballs for a home remedy.

Other item you might want to try to get rid cat hairballs is a Petroleum-based laxatives. This will allow hairballs to pass through the cat’s digestive system by coating the hair and stool. There are many commercial over-the-counter products that can be purchased for hairball treatment in cats. The basic overall active ingredient in these products is petroleum jelly. Please make sure you never give your cat just plain petroleum jelly or mineral oil for cat hairballs because if they vomit this material up and then actually aspirate it into their lungs that can be fatal. The hairball remedies for cats sold in retail stores for this purpose actually have flavoring agents that tend to prevent this by the cat’s normal gag response if the cat should vomit.

Now that I have given you some suggestions on how to help with the hairballs feline issue, I feel that grooming your cat very frequently if not daily is the easiest to do! The other very important and easiest cat hairball home remedy is fresh clean water daily! I would also definitely implement a higher-fiber cat food as well that is suppose to eliminate hairballs. Well I hope this article helped you understand what to do to help your cat and their hairballs feline problem.
