My cats don't like this laxative as much as Katalax, however, the low price is a plus point, so I keep some in a drawer as a back up. It's gooey and quite messy, but if that's not a problem for you, it's an effective budget fur-ball remedy.

I have used Katalax in the past for hairball problems with my cat who is now aged 16 years 4 months, but I decided to try Defurr UM from Vet UK and in my opinion it is just as good as Katalax, it is a larger tube so is less expensive to use. My cat has always suffered from hairballs, but since giving him Defurr once weekly after the initial dose of 3 consecutive days, he has not had any trouble at all from hairballs. My cat grooms himself a great deal even though he gets combed on a regular basis so hairballs were a constant problem for him, some of these were very large and did give him a lot of pain and stomach problems, it is great that he doesn't suffer with hairballs now. He has always had a very good appetite except when he had a hairball that he needed to get up, since giving him Defurr once weekly he doesn't have any problem at all with his food and his appetite is that of a much younger cat. I put some of the paste on my finger and he licks it off, he seems to like it as he did with Katalax, he is a very fussy cat as well so if it didn't taste good, he wouldn't touch it. I will definitely keep using Defurr UM and cannot recommend it enough.
