Today is also National Hairball Awareness Day! We know all about hairballs since we're very floofy. Did you know shorthaired cats get hairballs too? Tamir sheds even more than we do!! We love the FURminator!
Here are some Hairball Tips from Furminator:
In observation of National Hairball Awareness Day (April 30th), to help both cats and parents alike, FURminator, Inc. created five quick tips for hairball prevention.
1. Regular Grooming: Decrease the amount of hair your cat ingests by using the FURminator deLuxe deShedding Tool, which reduces shedding by nearly 90 percent.
2. Home Remedies: Add a little canned pumpkin to your cat’s meals once or twice a week. The fiber in the pumpkin can help move any hair clods through their system.
3. Stay Hydrated: Encourage your cat to drink plenty of water by placing various bowls throughout the house. The water will help flush out the hair before it has time to clump in the stomach.
4. A New Menu: There are several specially formulated cat foods that aid in the fight against hairballs. Always consult with your vet first before making any drastic changes to your cat’s diet.
5. Ask Your Vet: If you believe your cat has a chronic hairball problems ask your veterinarian to recommend a laxative supplement to help prevent ingested hairs from forming hairballs.
