Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Hairball Awareness Day

Hairballs can be dangerous to pets, particularly cats, if they become impacted in the digestive system and prevent food from passing through. This can lead to serious health problems, including vomiting, loss of appetite, constipation, and abdominal pain. In some cases, hairballs can cause blockages that require surgical intervention.

To minimize the risk of hairballs in pets, it is important to groom them regularly to remove loose hair and prevent the buildup of hair in the digestive system. This can be done through regular brushing or combing to remove loose hair and prevent mats from forming. Some pets may also benefit from a diet that includes fiber to help move hair through the digestive system.

If your pet is exhibiting symptoms of hairball impaction, such as vomiting, loss of appetite, constipation, or abdominal pain, it is important to seek veterinary care promptly. Early intervention can help prevent serious health problems and ensure the best outcome for your pet.
