What is the best way to take care of them? Spooks has coughed up 2 of them already, his hair is soooooo long, and even after we brush it, there is still some that comes out. Would it be best to have him shaved in the summer months?

Mix a teaspoon of pumpkin (canned) in the food twice a week.

We got some hairball treatment from the local pet store, tasted like malt...?
cats lvoed it, fixed the problem. Only had to use it during shedding season.

Would petsmart or petco sell that stuff? I am sick of getting up in the morning only to almost step on a hairball..... Good thing it has only happend 2 times..... but he always hacks one up in the middle of our hallway.....

Oh, and about what price is it, and how much do you get? I want to see when James and I could fit it into our budget. (if we should get it now, or wait until the next check) How fast does the tube get used up?
