While you’re waiting to see your name in lights, check out these FURminator tips on preventing hairballs in cats:

Fuzzballs, cat scratches and dirty litter boxes may be top complaints from cat parents, but paws down, hairballs are among the worst of the worst. With peak shedding season underway, our cats are in full swing when it comes to grooming themselves, which means an increase in hairballs (since hairballs are caused when the cat swallows the loose hair).

Here are some recommended ways to prevent hairballs in cats:

  • Regular Grooming: Hairballs occur when cats over groom. To help cats look and feel their best, it’s essential to regularly brush them. The FURminator deShedding Tool for Cats is recommended by vets and nominated by Tufts University School of Veterinarian Medicine as the number one product to reduce hairballs in cats. Using the tool on a regular basis, as well as the FURminator deShedding Shampoo for Cats, will help reduce shedding, thus reducing the amount of hair your cat ingests.
  • Home Remedies: Try adding a little butter and canned pumpkin to your cat’s meals once or twice a week. The butter may loosen the hair clod and the fiber in the pumpkin can help move it through the system.
  • Keep Hydrated: Encourage your cat to drink plenty of water by placing bowls in various places throughout the house. The water will help flush out the hair before it has time to clump in the stomach.
  • Consult Your Vet: If you believe your cat has chronic hairball problems, ask your veterinarian to recommend a laxative supplement to help prevent ingested hair from forming hairballs.

See you back here tomorrow at noon for the announcement of the contest winner!
