Dechra Veterinary Products has added Lax-a-Past – a complementary feed designed to help eliminate the problem of hairballs in cats – to its portfolio. 

Lax-a-Past is a palatable paste that can be administered orally to kittens and cats aged over 6 months.

It can be used weekly to help stop hairballs from forming or in higher doses over a consecutive three-day period to help eliminate them. 

Carol Morgan, Brand Manager from Dechra Veterinary Products (pictured right) said: “Hairballs are a well-known issue for cats. Lax-a-Past is a complementary feed that offers a simple, easy-to-administer solution to help relieve the digestion problems caused by hairballs.  

“It is very easy for owners to administer as the required dosage can be squeezed out and spread on a front paw or given directly into the mouth."

Lax-a-Past is available in a 70g tube.
