High Fiber Cat Food

High-fiber cat food can often help when your cat has a gastrointestinal issue like constipation or diarrhea. When you need to get more fiber in your cat’s diet, there are foods specifically made to give them those nutritional benefits. Cat food with fiber from ingredients like beet pulp can help reduce hairballs, and the natural fibers can aid digestion. Not all feline pets need a high fiber diet for cats, and you should consult your veterinarian if you suspect your cat is having digestion issues.

FAQs About Hairball Cat Food

In conjunction with regular brushings and grooming, a hairball control cat food can be a great way to help keep your kitty from getting dreaded hairballs. Hairball cat food formulas contain high amounts of fiber to help push contents—including hair—through your pet’s intestinal tract. The foods also contain enzymes to help prevent the hairballs from forming.

Feeding your cat these special formulations may help keep the hair moving through their system and reduce the need for them to hack up the hairball on their own.

When picking a cat food for hairballs, keep an eye on the fiber content of the formulations. In dry foods, the crude fiber percentage should be around 8 to10%, while canned foods can be in the 2 to 4% range. Make sure the option you select still meets all your pet’s overall nutritional needs and is an all-around wholesome food choice. The best cat foods for hairballs should still provide a good source of protein and other important ingredients like Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids.

Wet food can help with the passing of your kitty’s hair because it’s made to be easier to digest than some other food types. Because it digests so quickly, it doesn’t allow the hair to clump and form a ball. This means cats that eat canned wet food may naturally have fewer hairballs than those that eat dry food.

Pet parents that want to keep pesky hairballs at bay can find cat food for hairballs online or at your neighborhood Petco Pet Care Center.
