How Diet Can Prevent Cat Hairballs | Eukanuba

Can a healthy diet prevent hairballs?

Most cats, whether in the wild or the tame surroundings of your home, spend a considerable amount of time grooming their coat. As they do so, the hair is swallowed and may build up over time in their stomach. If the hairball doesn't pass from the stomach, the cat will attempt to eliminate it by coughing.

The diet you feed your cat can help with hairball control, by keeping their digestive system healthy.
