Now, for the first time, Laxatone is available over the counter. Laxatone has been the veterinary industry standard for the prevention and removal of hairballs for more than 25 years.Cats shed to a small degree all year long and heavily during the spring and fall. Bathing, brushing, and combing help lower the amount of hair swallowed but some of it gets into the stomach and it cannot be digested. It builds up in the stomach and unless it is removed, it can block the cat's digestive system.Constipation, a dry hacking cough, gagging, and vomiting may be indications of hairballs. If your cat lives inside, you may occasionally see him vomit a long, dark mass of congealed hair.Regular use of Laxatone coats the swallowed hair and allows it to easily pass through your cat's intestinal tract.And, with Laxatone's great taste, getting your cat to take the medication has never been easier.

Laxatone Hairball Lubricant plain Flavor

posted 5 years ago

The vet gave this to my guinea pig Solo, because she had an hairball blockage and it took care of her problem. I give it to my guinea pigs once a week.
If guinea pigs ingest too much fur while grooming, it will build up in hairballs as it does in cats. Because guinea pigs can't throw hairballs up like cats can, hairballs can cause life threatening blockages in the digestive tract.

Pros: easy to use, works great, it natural

Cons: none

Vet recommended.

posted 5 years ago

Only one our two cats seems to get occasional hairballs, and our vet recommended we give him a little laxatone once a week. We put a dab on his cheek, and he will clean himself and ingest it. It's very easy to use and effective.

Pros: Helps reduce hairballs.

Cons: A little sticky.
