Hairballs and Cats
If you have an adult cat at home, you’ve either already encountered hairballs or you soon will.
Where do hairballs come from? As cats lick, they naturally swallow some of their hair. When enough of this ingested hair collects in a cat's digestive tract, it forms a hairball. Most hairballs are harmlessly coughed up or passed through your cat.
Do some cats have more hairballs than others? Yes, Cats with long hair and those that shed heavily or groom excessively are especially prone to developing hairballs.
How do I minimize the occurrence of hairballs? By brushing your cat regularly and thoroughly to remove loose hair and mats you can minimize the occurrence of hairballs. Long-haired cats should be brushed every day while short-haired cats should be brushed weekly.
How do I know if my cat has a hairball problem? Look out for these signs:
- Vomiting, retching or excessive gagging
- Constipation or extraordinary amount of cat hair in stools
- Loss of appetite or less energy

Signs of a Problem:
- Bad breath
- Yellow or brown buildup on teeth
