hairballs in catsAs a cat owner, you must be more than familiar with that age old problem the hairball. During the grooming process, hair gets attached to a cat’s rough tongue and is ultimately ingested. As a result, a hairball is formed which clogs up in your cat’s digestive system. Hairballs are a common but serious issue as cats with hairballs may develop other problems like constipation, a dry cough, or vomiting. A good hairball remedy can prevent the formation of hairballs and associated health problems making your cat healthier and happier.

One of the first things any cat owner needs to remember to do is regular grooming. In fact, grooming is a safe and effective hairball remedy that prevents hairballs before they form. Still, many cat owners who swear by regular grooming will also attest to the fact that grooming alone may not eliminate the problem. Veterinarians often recommend laxatone for cats.

Cat laxatone is essentially a laxative and lubricant for intestines which was designed to reduce the problems with hairballs. Laxatone is a medicinal treatment that is available in tuna or malt flavour (cats tend to prefer tuna-flavoured laxatone) and should not be mixed with food as this can reduce the effectiveness of the hairball remedy. Instead, laxatone can be dabbed on your cat’s paw and during grooming your cat will lick it off and ingest it. Otherwise, laxatone can also be applied to the roof of your cat’s mouth.

As far as the safety of the product is concerned, laxatone is trusted by veterinarians and has been used worldwide to prevent and eliminate hairballs for more than 25 years. Most of the ingredients in laxatone for cats are completely natural (apart from some artificial flavours) and there are no serious side effects. You can quickly and easily eliminate the problem of hairballs with a simple medication like laxatone.
