No one likes a sticky surprise on their carpet! Here are a few tips to reduce hairballs in cats.

During shedding season cats can over-groom and this increases hair excess. This isn’t just found on clothes and furniture in fact, most of it is ingested by the cat. Grooming your cat regularly removes all the loose hair before it is swallowed and can reduce hairballs dramatically.

Cats have primal instincts and believe it or not, where their water bowl is located can help reduce hair ingestion. In the wild, a cat wouldn't drag its prey to a watering hole to eat and drink simultaneously. Domestic cats have inherited this instinct from their wild cousins. Owners should keep a cat’s water bowl in a separate location to his or her food bowl.

There are several specially formulated cat foods and treats which aid in the fight against hairballs. Each pet is different, so always consult the cat’s vet first before making any drastic diet changes.

If you are concerned about your cat’s chronic hairball problem, be sure to consult a veterinarian for the best course of action to help alleviate the problem. Always consult with a veterinarian when it comes to major changes in health, diet and behaviour.
