Q & A: Hairballs in dogs

Q: Why don’t dogs struggle with hairballs?

A: Cats spend much time grooming themselves, which predisposes them to getting hairballs. Dogs don’t groom as excessively as cats do, and therefore they don’t ingest as much hair. We have diagnosed hairballs in some dogs with severe flea infestations, which cause severe itching and triggering the dogs to continually lick and chew their skin and fur.
