Taking Care of Hairballs

Wednesday, November 20, 2019
posted by Jim Murphy

My cat Atlantis is a long haired Siamese cat. He does have a problem with hairballs every now and then. If you have a long haired cat, it’s important that everything flows through their digestive system to prevent a serious blockage.

I started giving Atlantis some hairball medicine every week or so. It didn’t seem to work and Atlantis was still having hairballs frequently. I decided that  I would administer the medication more frequently. I give him some nearly everyday and this seems to do the trick. The key is not to give too much. If it’s a gel, about one inch is fine.

Atlantis likes this medication because it tastes like fish. He thinks it’s a treat. I let him lick it off my finger. Keep in mind, some cats may be more fussy and not take this medication easily. So be creative, try mixing it with food or put it inside of a treat.

Watch out for frequent hairballs, they could be dangerous!
