Ինչպես վարվել կատվի մազակալների հետ
Cats are very attentive to the cleanliness of their body, licking themselves several times a day. During this procedure, they naturally ingest a small amount of their own hair. When hair accumulates in the animal’s digestive tract, it forms a wool ball. Most hairballs are regurgitated or passed out with the litter without harm to the health of the cat.
Especially often, such lumps form in pets that have long hair, shed heavily or lick themselves for a long time.
