When a cat has a bright shiny coat, it's a sign of good health.
But when your cat's coat is not healthy, that shine will fade away. You could also notice more shedding in your home (and on your clothes), and more of those nasty hairballs.
When cats groom, the loose hair in their coat sticks to their tongue and is swallowed. Some of that hair naturally passes through their digestive system and is eliminated. But when too much hair is swallowed, it collects into a “ball” that cannot move through their digestive tract – and it is regurgitated in the form of a hairball.
A certain amount of shedding is normal for all cats. It's a natural process that occurs as old hair falls out and healthy new hair grows in to replace it. Many factors influence how much your cats will shed including breed, diet, sunlight, temperature, age and illness. But the more your cats shed, the more hairballs they will have. So keeping their coats healthy is important.
Tucker has lots of fur, he's not a long hair - just a lot of hair. He occasionally gets a furball. How do you handle your cats furballs??
Here's what you can do to help control shedding and hairballs.
• Regular Brushing and Grooming – The more you brush your cats, the less loose hair will build up in their coat to cause shedding and hairballs.
• Healthy Nutritional Supplement – Most cats do not get the essential fatty acids and fiber that they need for good nutrition. Fatty acids will produce a healthier coat while reducing shedding and hairballs. That's why a good nutritional supplement rich in omega fatty acids should be used to help fill in those nutritional gaps. I always recommend Hairball Plus For Cats.
