Preventing hairballs

How you can help your cat with digesting its hair

Even when not in the seasonal moulting period as it gets warmer, cats are always replacing their fur. You can’t miss the lost hair from a Norwegian Forest cat, that of a Cornish Rex does not take as much effort to sweep up. While cleaning, cats will always swallow some of the hair that comes loose. The hair passes through the digestive system and comes out the other end without much change to it. When there is a lot of hair in the stomach though, it can be difficult for it to be moved on to the next digestive stage. The cat then vomits this hairball back up.

There are two main ways you can help prevent hairballs, especially on long-haired cats. The first is plenty of grooming with a brush. This removes much of the naturally lost hair and it never gets as far as the cat’s stomach. The other is to feed cat food that aids the digestion and passing through of hair. Grapeseed oil and evening primrose oil are particularly helpful in this, which is one of the reasons we add these to 3coty® natural cat food. That they also provide valuable omega 3 fatty acids means they have a double benefit to your cat.
