Hairballs can cause intestinal blockages which can be a serious health problem for your cat. It is a natural result of the grooming process. Usually this happens with long-haired cats because they swallow the fur.
The hairball can cause life threatening blockage look for these type of symptoms: ongoing vomiting, gagging, constipation, diarrhea, hacking if the cat dose not produce an hairball call the vet.
Brushing your cat can reduce the amount of fur your cat swallows during self grooming. To pick up any remaining loose hair take a damp paper towel or cloth over the remaining loose hair.
Some cat food prevent hairball formation and will help keep your cat’s digestion active to pass the fur the cat swallows through the system. Vitamins and oils will help keep your cat’s skin and coat healthy, reducing both shedding and grooming.
