Hairballs are not usually dangerous, but they can be an irritation for cats and their families alike. Although persistent, frequent hairballs may require a trip to the veterinary hospital in Campbell, you may be able to treat occasional hairballs at home. Watch this video to learn more.
Regular brushing can remove excessive hair from your cat so that he or she does not consume too much of it while self-grooming. Talk to your vet at the animal hospital about a good diet for your cat, as feeding him the right foods can help to prevent digestive issues that can contribute to hairballs. If your cat doesn’t respond to these changes, contact the Reed Animal Hospital veterinarian for assistance.
