When cats clean themselves, their tongues often pull loose hair from the coat. When swallowed, it can accumulate in the gastrointestinal tract. This nearly indigestible material becomes a hairball, which can interfere with normal digestion and elimination. Symptoms of hairballs include constipation, straining during a bowel movement, dry cough, and vomiting after meals. The use of Petromalt and regular brushing of cat's coat will generally eliminate these problems.
To eliminate hairballs - Give orally a strip of 1.25 cm (1/2 inch) per 2 kg (4.4 lbs) of body weight, once daily for 3-4 days.
To prevent hairballs - Give Orally a stip of 1.25 cm (1/2 inch) per 2 kg (4.4 lbs) of body weight, 1 to 2 times per week. Brush coat frequently.
Warnings: Should symptoms persist, consult a veterinarian. Keep out of the reach of children. Store at room temperature.

My cat has loved the fish flavor for years and now that hey have changed the ingredients, he will have nothing to do with it. He like it so well after his nightly brushing he would wait for his treat and lick it right of my finger hoping for more. I returned the new stuff for a credit and now am trying to find someone that may still have the original one on their shelves.
my kitty buddy is a big 20ib male kitty w/ urinary problems! so in finding sulutions to those problems i took all fish away from him because of high magnesium counts! thats where the malt flavored petromalt came into play! this was several years ago, buddy is almost 10yrs old! when you find something good that works, you stick w/ it! my brothers kitty was the recipient of 2 of those pkg. of petromalt i just recieved! tyvm!
