Are there hairball remedies that are safe for diabetic cats? They all seem to have some kind of sugar in them. I'm open to home remedies too. The background, if it helps: My kitty, Pants, has had two episodes in the past six months where she's had trouble getting a large hairball up. The second time, she threw up large amounts of clear liquid and mucus more than a dozen times in an hour, so I ended up taking her to the emergency vet for fluids. In addition to being diabetic (but in remission), she's also got EPI and IBD, so she's underweight, and I worry more about minor illnesses than I would in a healthy, normal weight cat. She's got long hair and has always had hairballs, but they've been small and frequent, and I'm not sure what's caused her to shift to larger, less frequent hairballs. The vet was pretty nonchalant about the risk of large hairballs and didn't have any explanation for why this has become a problem. Even if it's not dangerous, it's very unpleasant for Pants (not to mention very expensive if it involves a vet trip). The vet suggested more frequent brushing and hairball food/products, but didn't have advice for finding ones that won't spike her BG. She's allergic to chicken and eats a prescription diet, so even if there's a low carb hairball food that would be OK for a diabetic cat, she probably can't eat it.
