Caring For Your Pet Naturally and Holistically

What causes furballs?
Cats are avid groomers and seem to spend hours preening and licking themselves. Unfortunately this usually means that they end up swallowing a lot of loose fur which accumulates in their stomach to form matted lumps called furballs.
These are usually either vomited out or emitted with their feces. Problems arise however if the cat’s digestive system is weak or if their nutrition is inadequate as the furballs may remain inside the cat and act as a cork causing a number of problems including constipation, recurrent vomiting and a build up of toxins.
What is FurBall Dr.?
PetAlive FurBall Dr. has been specifically formulated for cats who suffer from furball problems and contains a combination of selected herbs and homeopathic ingredients to help with digestion and elimination, thereby preventing the distressing problems associated with furballs.

How has PetAlive FurBall Dr. helped others?
“We have tried everything to help our cat with furballs – expensive diets, cod-liver oil, medicines from the vet, you name it. This is the only product which has brought relief. We haven’t had a problem in ages.” Grateful owner.
“Since beginning on the FurBall Dr. we have seen far less throwing up and she seems to be able to eat normally again. Thank you for all the assistance!” – Thea.
“About once every two or three weeks we used to have problem after problem with our cat. Being Persian, she swallowed a lot of fur and the vet explained that this can build up in her stomach and cause a blockage and constipation. Your FurBall capsules are very easy to give to her unlike other pills and we know the early signs now and make sure she gets them for a few days every time which really does the trick. We have also found your Muscle and Joint Capsules helpful for our German Shepherd. All our thanks for what you are doing for the animals!” – Tomas.
How long until we see results?
An initial 10 day course is recommended to cleanse the system. Thereafter a maintenance dose will help to keep your cat free of furball associated problems such as retching, constipation and digestive discomfort.

What else can I do to prevent furballs in my cat?
* Grooming your cat regularly, especially while he is molting, will reduce the amount of hair he may swallow.
* Ensure your cat is eating a balanced, high quality diet with plenty of raw and unprocessed food (preferably organic). Also make sure his diet contains plenty of fiber, fats and oils to help the hair pass easily through the digestive system.
* Remove your cat’s food after a while if he has not eaten it all. Periods of fasting throughout the day are very important for effective digestion and detoxification.
* Use Immunity and Liver Support capsules to boost your cat’s immune functioning and resistance against disease and infection
