Help eliminate nasty hairballs and resulting constipation with Hairb-Ez, an all-natural herbal cat hairball remedy that helps unblock loose hair and keep it from forming into balls that become lodged in your cat’s stomach. Hairballs result from frequent grooming with the tongue and are common in long and medium-haired cats.
Hairb-Ez helps to dissolve ingested hairballs. It contains a gentle laxative herb as well as herbs that help relieve discomfort and bloating. Read how NHV Hairb-Ez helped Tatiana the kitty who had terrible bouts of hairballs until NHV Hairb-Ez.
This formula can also be used for dogs who may get hairballs, though this is a much rarer condition in dogs, and underlying causes should be looked at by your vet. For more tips on hairballs, visit Dr. Cook’s Vet Talks blog.

Can dogs get hairballs?
Dogs don't usually tend to get hairballs. This is mostly due to the fact that dogs don't have the little spines on their tongue. However, it does happen on occasion, especially if a dog has another underlying problem where they are chewing or biting at their fur constantly. The Hairb-Ez cat hairball remedy can be used for dogs or any other fur-bearing creatures like ferrets or rabbits.
I noticed that this formulation has alcohol. Is it safe?
There is a small percentage of alcohol left over from the extraction process. It isn't something that's added in. The medicinal properties of some herbs in the formulation are more potent when extracted in this method. These products are vet-formulated and have been used safely for pets for decades. However, pet parents who are concerned may use a teaspoon of boiling water in the dosage. This will cause any alcohol to evaporate.
Hairballs are normal, aren't they? Do I really need to worry about it for my cat?
A hairball once in a while is normal; however, it's a good idea to help your cat with a hairball remedy that will rid their digestive system of these hairy masses, as these can irritate the stomach and may even block the digestive tract.
What else can I do to prevent hairballs in my cats?
Along with this natural supplement, there are a few other tricks you can do to help your kitty with their hairballs. Be sure to brush your kitty often. Try the lion cut (when fur is shaved down to the skin). Give your pet a little extra fiber in their diet - pumpkin is a great addition.
