Cat Hairball Control

Hairballs are extremely unpleasant for cats and humans. No one wants to hear their precious kitty choke on a hairball, and hairball cleanup can be messy for us humans. Thankfully, there are products on the market today that help minimize and even prevent the formation of hairballs. If you’re a first-time cat owner, you may not even really know what a hairball is and how they come about. If your cat licks his coat often to “groom” (it’s actually a misconception that cat’s can groom themselves), you will likely see some hairballs. When your cat licks his coat, tiny hook-like structures on his tongue catch loose, dead hair that is then swallowed by your cat. The majority of the hair passes through the digestive tract with no problems, but the hair that stays in the stomach forms what we call a hairball. Your cat must regurgitate the hairball to get rid of it. Unlike the name suggests, the “balls” are not round at all; as they pass through the tubular esophagus, they often appear thin and like a tube.

Cat hairball remedies from Zen Pet Supplies come in a variety of forms including wet shampoo, waterless shampoo sprays, chews, tuna-flavored edible paste, and even a malt-flavored edible paste.
