Some cats turn up their noses at hairball control gels or they won’t take supplements. If your cat is particularly finicky, or if you’re looking for a product to give him an extra boost of hairball protection, hairball control treats might be the way to go. Designed by a licensed veterinarian for hairball prevention, Feline Greenies Hairball Control Smart Bites are our top choice for hairball control treats.
In addition to minimizing hairball formation, these dual-textured treats also provide your cat with healthy nutrients to support overall health and wellness. Feline Greenies Hairball Control Smart Bites are made with a unique combination of plant-based fibers to minimize hairball formation and aid digestion. The treats also contain 25 milligrams of petrolatum per serving to help lubricate the digestive tract, allowing ingested hair to pass gently through without causing a dangerous obstruction. Available in both chicken and tuna flavor and packed with protein, each treat is less than 2 calories.
