Cat Hairballs

First, make sure your cat is coughing vs. choking. Hair from cats licking themselves is normally expelled in its stool or when it vomits. Hairball problems can be detected with cigar shaped clumps of fur, vomiting after meals, constipation or diarrhea, lack of appetite and a swollen abdomen. 

Frequent or a large number of hairballs is more dangerous and you should see a vet. To help prevent hairballs brush your cat daily (especially long hair cats), water to aid in digestion, fiber (add a teaspoon of non-spiced canned pumpkin mixed with their regular food), flavored petroleum laxatives and possibly petroleum free laxatives (check with your vet).

FURminator - Hairballs

 FURminator deShedding Tool - $35 to $60 at PetSmart.

It reduces shedding up to 90% by removing the loose, dead undercoat without damaging the topcoat. It is for dogs or cats. In cats it helps eliminate hairballs and in dogs it brings out the pet’s natural oils, promoting healthier skin. Guaranteed to reduce shedding better than any brush, comb or rake. Plus it reduces the amount of airborne elements that cause allergic reactions in many people.   It is not designed for mats or tangles.
 
The FURminator deShedding Tool was nominated by Tufts University School of Veterinarian Medicine’s newsletter as the  number one product to reduce hairballs in cats. Using the FURminator deShedding Tool on a regular basis, as well as the cat shampoo will help reduce shedding, thus reducing the amount of hair your cat ingests.
