Does your cat vomit its’ food often?  What about hairballs?  It’s something that many cat owners have to face.  Guess what – there is a solution to this problem!

How to stop your cat from vomiting up its’ food

There are a few things you can try for a cat that is vomiting.

  • The first suggestion is to force your cat to eat slower.  If a cat is eating its food too fast it can cause them to swallow air which could lead to vomiting (we know what you’re thinking – how do I get my cat to eat slower?).  Give your cat smaller portions and more frequent servings.  This will help their stomach to better digest the food. 
  • Changing their diet may also help reduce vomiting as many cats have food allergies or cannot handle certain ingredients in their diet.

 

What you can do about your cat’s hairball issues

Hairballs can be a head-scratcher for many cat owners, almost like a double-edged sword.  Trust us, don’t worry about it, we’re here to help!  Take a look below for some tips:

 

Look into feeding a higher fiber diet.  This will help extra hair pass through the system, resulting in less hairball incidents for your cat. There are also many vitamins that can help improve the skin and coat which would reduce the shedding, which can play a large part in hairball problems.  Using grooming supplies on your cat such as 8 in 1 waterless shampoo or shed control & hairball shampoo along with brushing will help so they do not ingest as much hair when they clean themselves. There are products such as laxatone and Kittymalt hairball remedy paste that act as a lubricant to eliminate and prevent hairballs if other methods still are not effective.  If you need assistance or would like more information, please contact your local veterinarian or stop in and ask one of our knowledgeable sales associates.
