Prevent and Treat Hairballs


One of the easiest things you can do to prevent hairballs in your cat is to brush them more often. Skin and coat care is an important aspect of every cat’s overall health. Less loose hair means they will be ingesting less, which is a simple form of hairball control. If your cat tends to have issues with hairballs on a regular basis, digestive aids and fiber are a good option for you.


Soft treats like the Pet Naturals Hairball Cat Chews help reduce shedding and promote a healthy GI tract, two factors sure to decrease the number of hairballs your cat struggles with.
