All cats get hairballs.
Whether your cat has long hair or short, he's going to shed.
All cats shed to some degree, all year round. When they groom themselves, cats swallow the loose hair they remove from their coats with their tongue, but they can't digest it. The hair builds up, blocking your cat's digestive system, and eventually it is vomited back up in the form of a wet nasty hairball.
Many cat owners brush their cats to remove some of the loose dead hair from their coat. Regular brushing can help cut down on hairballs, but it can't eliminate them altogether. That's because no amount of brushing will remove ALL the loose hair in your cat's coat.
Most of your cat's loose hair is in the undercoat - and most grooming tools and brushes are not made to penetrate all the way down to the undercoat. You can brush and brush, but you'll never remove all the loose hair, no matter how often you do it. So when your cat grooms himself he will still swallow loose hair ... and he will have to vomit it back up again as a hairball.
Hairballs are no fun for kitty, or for you. So why should either of you suffer through those unpleasant hairballs when there's a safe easy way to get rid of them?
Laxatone Is the Answer.
Laxatone® is a delicious easy-to-use gel that prevents & eliminates hairballs.
Cats just love the taste, so "taking their medicine" is like getting a yummy treat! They simply can't resist the taste. Laxatone comes in 2 great flavors - regular and tuna. Try them both to find your cat's favorite, or switch back and forth to give your cat more variety.
It's easy to get even finicky kitties to take their Laxatone, because cats just love the the taste.
Just put the gel on your finger or on your cat's paw, and your kitty will eagerly lick it off.
All it takes is a half teaspoon of the gel, 2 or 3 times a week, to keep your kitty hairball-free. For best results, feed it to your cat between meals, do not mix with food.
Here's how it works.
When your cat eats the Laxatone gel, it coats the swallowed hair in his stomach, allowing it to easily pass through his intestinal tract. The gel acts as a lubricant. When the coated hair passes through the bowel it is excreted. That means your cat will no longer need to vomit it back up - and that's good news for both of you.
Laxatone is safe to use in both kittens and cats, and it is a very simple solution to a very nasty problem. Laxatone gel has been used worldwide for more than 25 years.
If you've got a kitty, this is a "must" for your medicine cabinet. Veterinarians recommend it.
