I bought these for their laxative effect rather than fur ball prevention as I have an elderly cat who gets constipated, I tried the fur ball paste & none of them would touch that, so tried these instead. All my cats are happy to eat these thank goodness! They are a little on the large/long side for the elderly cat (not many teeth!) but they can easily be broken in half. Packet says feed 6 a day for prevention of fur balls or 10 a day to remove fur balls, 29 servings in a bag based on 6 a day. I wasn't sure if they would work for constipation as not much inulin in them, but I fed 10 in a day & my cats stools were too loose the day after, so obviously works! I now feed 6 a day & find it is the right quantity to keep bowels more regular
My cats all love these treats, so I'd recommend them as part of a palatable fur-ball maintenance regieme. I find that giving 3 treats every few days seems to keep fur-balls at bay. However, if they already have a fur-ball problem (coughing & regurgitating) then I have found that some laxative paste is needed in order to get rid of the blockage. I've given this product 4 stars because although it's great for preventing fur-balls, I'd say it's not the best product to use if fur-balls are already an issue.
My cat loved these treats and I have not noticed any furballs being coughed up. She grooms a lot so anything to help her. I will buy these again.
I noticed these as I also use the M&C Catberry treats, so I thought I would try these for by female cat. She loves them and I do think they help her with passing furballs. She grooms a lot and seems less troubled with furballs since having 3-4 of these a day.
