Why Cats Cough Up Hairballs

Your cat spends half of her waking hours grooming herself. As she licks her coat clean, she’ll ingest some of the hair along the way. Instead of normally passing through her gut, when too much hair accumulates in her stomach it can irritate the stomach lining which causes it to be coughed back up. This is a very common problem amongst cats and one that longhaired cats may suffer from more often. Hairball episodes averaging approximately four per month are usually nothing to be concerned about. If your cat has hairball episodes more frequently than average then she should be checked out by your veterinarian as it may lead to stomach problems and dehydration. A daily brushing can help to prevent your cat from developing hairballs, this will help to prevent loose hair from being otherwise ingested.
