Hairballs

Filed in Cats, Health

Unless you have a hairless cat (such as a Sphynx) your cat is susceptible to hairballs. Cats are more fastidious than other animals and will spend a great deal of time grooming themselves. Self-grooming does more than merely keep the coat clean and neat, it serves to help remove dead hair and skin, stimulate blood circulation, and tone muscles.

Dead hair does not digest well, so it accumulates and at some point has to be expelled. Is there anything more thrilling than waking up at 2 a.m. to the sound of your cat coughing up a hairball on your bed?

There are several steps you can take to reduce hairballs in your cat. The most effective way of reducing hairballs is regular grooming and brushing. If you are removing the dead hair, there is less for your cat to swallow. Unfortunately, most people don't have the time necessary to perform daily grooming. The alternative is to feed your cat a food formulated to reduce hairballs or routinely give it a hairball remedy.
