Hairballs

Hi anyone any idea how to prevent hairballs in cats ? My 13yo is throwing up quite large  plugs of hair , she is groomed ,wormed flea'd etc.She is prone to throwing up, can't eat dry food or whiskas as it will all return. Any thoughts ?

I had this with one of my cats too. It means there is some kind of obstruction so almost nothing, hairs and dry food, can find its way in the stomage and further on.

What you can try is giving it oil, like olive-oil. But if it's that bad as it sounds in your writing, it is better to go to a vet for a special treatment. I than got a special ointment that helped.
