Take the Hill’s Science Diet 30-Day Hairball Challenge

  [caption id="attachment_7991" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Although more common in long-hair cats, even their short-haired cousins can suffer from hairballs."][/caption]   Hairballs. If you have a medium- to long-hair cat, you know what we're talking about: the undesirable bi-product of self-grooming. And, while regular brushing can help diminish the volume of these unpleasant little presents, they still pop up from time to time--especially when temperatures start to go up, which can lead to increased shedding. But now there's an alternative. Thanks to Hill's Science Diet Hairball Control Formulas, your cat CAN be closer to hairball-free in 30 days. And, to help you get started with your challenge, Hill's Science Diet is offering a $3 off coupon, good in-store or online. What causes hairballs: Simply put: most cats are clean freaks, washing themselves several times a day. As they lick and preen, they naturally swallow a bit of their own fur. When enough of this ingested fur collects in the digestive tract, it forms a hairball. Long-haired and cats that shed heavily or groom excessively are especially prone to hairballs. [caption id="attachment_7987" align="alignright" width="300" caption="Try the Hill's 30-Day Hairball Challenge today!"][/caption] What you can do: - Regularly brush your cat to remove loose hair and mats. Long-haired cats should be brushed daily. Have a short-haired cat? Once a week should do. - Give your cat a food that is specially formulated for hairball control.

    Hmmm…OK, I read the ad. So what exactly is “The Challenge”??? Money back if my Maine Coon gets a hairball? Return for product for a different brand of my choice? Normally, a “challenge” has some kind of “guaranteed outcome or______ “. What’s Hill’s?

    I guess the challenge is to feed your cat Science Diet for 30 days & see if the cat still has hairballs. I have a Maine Coon who refuses to let me groom her. I’ve been trying different things, but she still has issues. Hill’s is the name of the company who makes Science Diet.

    Read the article hoping for some help for my kitty who has problems with hairballs but it really wasn’t much help for my particular situation. The Hill’s formula probably works but my cat is on a specific urinary tract diet and while the hair balls are a problem keeping this male kitty from having further urinary problems is a more critical issue. I was hoping for some suggestions and recommendations that did not involve a change in cat food which I can not do. I do regularly brush him but he needs more. I have purchase several of the hair ball “gels” but he won’t eat any of them with out being forced. I felt like the article was not so much help in dealing with hair balls as a “AD” for Science Diet.

    My short-haired cat is an excessive groomer.I brush her at least twice a week, and I have had her on SD Hairball Control for years. It helps immensely, but she will still present me with the occasional “gift”. I have used SD exclusively since my previous two cats had 1) stones which nearly killed him, and 2) a low-grade, chronic infection that caused her to “leak,” that only SD would keep under control. After those two ordeals, I won’t feed my cat anything else. But I was hoping this article would offer me something to deal with those occasional presents!

    I have two Maine Coons, both are eating Pro Plan Weight Management dry. One has Urinary problems while the other has weight problems. Both cats are doing great on the this food, so for hairballs I give them Purina Friskies Indoor Adventures Crunchy treats and I have had zero problems with hairballs since after the first week, at first i gave them 4 a piece everyday for 7 days and then every other day for 7 days and now 3 days a week they get 5 each and its great. I am not a big fan of Purina foods, but my cats are doing great on the food and I will not change it if they dont need it changed.
