Hairball Support for all cats
Did you know that your furkiddo spends 30% of their waking life grooming? And because of their natural habit, they tend to swallow a lot of hair! Long haired cat breeds like Main Coons, Persians, and Ragdolls are more likely to develop hairballs than their short-haired meow-sins; however, all cats can get them. If the ingested hair cannot get past your kitty's stomach and small intestine, then a hairball will form. NHV Hairball Control Kit contains Hairb-Ez, which helps to dissolve hair buildup, soothe inflammation along the GI tract and improve the motility of undigested matter, while Milk Thistle helps with detoxification, reducing oxidative stress on the liver, and supporting healthy kidney/gallbladder function.
How NHV Remedies Supports Digestive Health and Hairball Control
The hacking sound of your kitty retching is pretty unpleasant to witness for any pet parent, but hairballs are a side effect of your cat's constant grooming. Suppose your furry friend is throwing up a hairball more than once a month. In that case, there may be something more serious going on like intestinal motility problems, skin issues, abdomen issues, urinary tract problems, or musculoskeletal concerns. When your kitty is grooming, their tongue is barbed (like a miniature brush), moving loose hair down their throat. Typically, this ingested hair passes through their GI tract and into their litter box. Sometimes, however, the hair can get stuck in their stomach, and they throw this up as hairballs. Hairballs become a problem when your kitty's digestive system can't move the hair through the stomach and intestinal tract at an average speed, leading to a possible blockage and issues with other organs. NHV Hairball Control Kit contains Hairb-Ez and Milk Thistle to help support your kitty's digestive health, organ health and to help pass hairballs naturally.

Shake well before use. The easiest method is to use the dropper provided and place the drops into your pet’s food or favorite treat. You can also use the dropper and squirt directly into the pet’s mouth. Some pets can be finicky, if this occurs consider hiding the drops in foods most pet’s love such as fish, chicken or yogurt or a favorite treat. If your pet only eats dry food then soak a few kibbles at feeding time.

Is NHV Hairball Control kit safe to use every day?
Yes! All of our supplements are made with organically grown herbs combined with non-GMO vegetable glycerin (and no added colors or preservatives) which is safe for long-term daily use and tastes great too!
I noticed that there is alcohol in the formula. Is it safe?
A very small amount of alcohol is leftover after the extraction process - it is not an added ingredient. The medicinal properties of certain herbs in this recipe are more bioavailable when extracted this way. All of our supplements are vet-formulated and have been used safely on pets for decades. However, any pet parent can use a teaspoon of boiling water in the dosage to evaporate any leftover alcohol.
Do dogs get hairballs?
Yes, but it is much rarer in dogs than in cats because kitties have much more sensitive tummies than doggos. Hairballs in dogs can indicate an underlying issue. Any dog pawrent dealing with hairball issues should book a consultation with their vet to see if there is a skin allergy or parasitic infestation, which can cause more licking and gnawing. If an underlying condition does not seem to be the cause, your vet may recommend some kind of laxative or a temporary change in diet to help your furkiddo pass the excess hair in their tummy.
How do you help your cat pass a hairball?
To help your kitty eliminate hairballs, you could try using a natural hairball remedy like NHV Hairb-Ez (rated 5 paws out of 5). It can help dissolve ingested hairballs (in the stomach) and move undigested matter along the GI tract to pass out of their body naturally.
My cat is throwing up hairballs and bile, what do I do?
Hairballs (technically called “trichobezoars) are a mixture of hair, bile and sometimes undigested food. While an occasional hairball is no cause for immediate concern, if your cat is vomiting up a hairball more than once a month, then there could be something more serious going on. A loss of appetite, possible lethargy and ongoing vomiting, gagging, retching, or hacking without producing a hairball, could be signs that your sweet kitty is suffering from a gastrointestinal blockage requiring emergency surgery. If this is what’s happening, take them to the vet asap!
Why do cats get hairballs?
Normally, cats will swallow hair when grooming - their tongues are like mini brushes that remove loose hair. This ingested hair normally passes through the GI tract into their poop but sometimes the hair gets stuck and can irritate their sensitive bellies so it gets expelled as a hairball. Long-haired kitties like Main Coons, Persians, and Ragdolls are more prone to hairballs than their shorthaired cousins. While an occasional hairball is no cause for alarm, cats that vomit up a hairball more than 1-2 times per month should probably get their vet to do a thorough exam to make sure that there isn’t something more serious going on.
How do I prevent hairballs?
- Brush your kitty. Not all kitties will love this, but it can greatly reduce the frequency of hairballs.
- Try the ‘lion cut'. This cut is when your furkiddo’s hair is shaved down to the skin but a mane of hair is left around the head and ears. It can be a bit shocking for fur parents but many long-haired kitties love it, especially in the summer.
- Add Fiber to their diet. Pumpkin or cilium are great natural sources.
- Try using a natural hairball remedy like our NHV Hairb-Ez. It will help eliminate hairballs and vomiting by dissolving ingested hairballs, reducing constipation caused by hair build up, relieving discomfort, bloating, and discomfort and even supports the liver!
