Hairball Awareness Day Sweepstakes
Cat parents know that keeping your cat healthy is more than just a good diet and exercise. One health issue that cat parent need to keep an eye on is hairballs. Generally, infrequent hairballs are natural, but it’s something to keep an eye on. For Hairball Awareness Day, which is April 29th, 1-800-PetMeds invites you to enter the Hairball Awareness Day Sweepstakes.
Cats are self-grooming creatures with barbed tongues that help strip away any debris and the dead undercoat hair. All the barbs on a cats tongue face towards the throat, which is what helps grab everything when licking, however, it makes it nearly impossible to spit out the hair, resulting in your cats swallowing anything they catch while grooming. After swallowing the hair will generally travel through the digestive system and end up in the litter box, but sometimes the hair can build up in the stomach and turn into a hairball, resulting in your cat coughing up a hairball.
Hairballs can become a problem if they become more frequent or if too much hair builds in the stomach or small intestine. Hair buildup can cause a blockage in the intestinal tract that would need to be surgically removed.
