Question by heart o’ gold: Cat gets really bad hairballs – looking for suggestions?
My cat has very long very fine fur and grooms himself constantly. He gets really nasty hairballs, very dense, 3/4″ thick by up to three or four inches long – disgusting!
He’s on hairball food both wet and dry, gets “hairball treats” once a day when he’s having a problem about once a week when he’s not, and slicker combed every day during shedding and randomly at other times.
All of the above keeps the hairballs smaller and less frequent, but he still gets them. Any suggestions on things I’m not doing already?
I also worry that he may really choke on one of these things one day – if I am present, what can I do to help him?
Answer by Emi
you could try a cat treat with a hairball additive in it.. that has worked for my cats before.. you could trim your cats hair.. but you should see the vet if you think that the cat has a serious problem.
