Blue Buffalo’s nutrients are designed to prevent hairball and vomiting that may not be related to hairballs.
Digestion is the key to controlling vomiting. Since hair cannot be digested, the next best thing is to move it from the stomach to the GI tract.
Once the hair is moved into the GI tract, the vomiting or up regurgitating ends. However, in a vet visit for one of my cats, I found out that the hair could block the colon and cause additional problems.
We’ll talk about this later.
Blue Buffalo’s formula is loaded with protein and whole carbs for building a powerful structure and provide the energy your kitty needs.
As always, moderation is the key. Include too many carbs in the diet, and pretty soon you have an obese, lethargic cat replacing your energetic kitten.
Carbs provide energy, and activity directs that energy to fun, not fat.
The Blue Buffalo mix provides a good balance of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that may eliminate the need for additional supplementation.
Of course, you need to exercise awareness and watch your kitty. Not all kitties are created equal, and yours may have special needs.
Key Positive Points
• Assist digestion and help prevent vomiting
• Assist moving the food through GI tract
• Balance of proteins, whole carbs, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants
• Carbs are on the high side, which makes activity necessary. But, hey, what is more fun to have your kitty chase a light or a toy.
