Helps reduce hairballs in my cat.
February 20, 2021
I have been using Lax'aire for years for my cat who sheds a lot, and frequently has issues with hairballs that upset his stomach. My other cat is a long-hair, and it helps him pass the hair. They get their Lax'aire "treat" every night, and we have far fewer hairball episodes.
  • Cats love the taste
  • Helps reduce hairball episodes
  • Sometimes a little watery (separates in the tube; have to manually mix)

Great product

No problems giving the Laxaire. It must taste really good! Essential for all cats, so that the fur that they swallow when grooming, passes through their systems. Also, it is good for elderly cats who might have a little problem with constipation occasionally.

  • No cons

Been using this product for several months and it truly helps my cat, mostly from vomiting until she gets rid of hairball. She gets 1/2" most days and runs to me when I show her the tube :)

Excellent - the only one my cats will take. We have tried every other brand when Lax'aire was not available.

I have an elderly beagle that has arthritis. Due to pain meds, sometimes she has difficulty with bowel movements, or even just stress. This is an easy way to get everything working again, plus she loves it on top of her food, like an extra treat!

My cats like it
June 14, 2017
Unlike other hairball remedies, my cats run over to me when they see me pull out the tube of Lax'aire. They lick it right out of the tube, which allows me no to have to smear it on their noses or paws. And it works very effectively. It's more expensive than some, but this one works.

The product is great. My cat loves it. The only problem is that it had a short expiration date. They expired in May 2017. There is no way that I will use up before I throw it away.

Our 14 yr. old sisters began having problem with their bowels. The Laxaire has helped them a lot. We were very worried that yet another trip to the Vet was going to be necessary. Thank goodness for Laxaire!

Costs twice as much from the vet. More convenient to have it shipped too!

Best stuff ever
June 3, 2016
This works great for our 16 year old tuxedo cat. She is still able to groom herself however she gets frequent hair balls and this helps her expel it. She also has scoliosis of the spine in which she is given meds to help alleviate her pain but causes constipation. Our previous vet started us on this and it works great especially if you use it either 2 hours after eating or 10 minutes before feeding. I hope Pfizer doesn't do something crazy again and stop producing this product because it works much better than the others we have tried.

Our feline "senior citizen," Sir Thomas, will only accept Lax'aire. He has always taken it willingly. Since I have not been able to get Lax' aire, I have tried to give him other products ( 2 different flavors of Laxatone) from our vet, and he refuses both.
Sir Thomas and I both say, "PLEASE hurry!!!"

I have used Lax-aire for years and my cats all like it. Most will suck it right out of the tube. Those that won't, I just fill a needle-less siringe and shoot it into their mouth.

Lax'aire... The best hairball remedy ever...
May 17, 2014
I was happy to find it here at "Entirely Pets" at a very reasonable price! I tried a different brand but my girls wouldn't touch it even mixing it in with their food. With Lax'aire they will lick it right off my finger. The results are better too. A lot less hairball pick up around the house.

My cats love this. I use it to mix in their probiotics (powder) and they don't bat an eye - just gobble it up.

My 18-year-old cat has digestion issues frequently. He swallows a lot of hair due to his fastidious grooming routine. This behaviour leads to vomiting bouts every other day. To soothe his digestive tract, I put a dab of Lax'aire on the tip of my finger and he'll lick it fast as he loves the taste. He is then fine for two days and then the same scenario repeats itself. This product helps his condition quite a bit.

This has proved to work best for our cats. They like the taste and the texture is much smoother than others. A little each week has helped keep hairballs to a minimum!

My cat is 4 yrs old and I have been purchasing Laxaire' since 6 mos old. She really loves it and it really keeps the hairballs away. Please keep selling it for it is hard to find in stores.

My cat loves this
September 22, 2013
This product is fantastic. My cat absolutely loves this. He runs to me when he smells me opening the tube. And what I like best about it is that it's not too thick so it's easy to get out of the tube on to a spoon.

I also like that there is no hard seal to try to get off in order to access the product. Other brands have a seal that unless your're Ms. Atlas you need a scissors to cut the seal off.

I recommend this to all cat owners.

Happy cat
August 24, 2013
We are very pleased with your product, Lax'Aire.. My cat was throwing up badly from hair build- up in her digestive system. 5 times in one day does NOT get it. I brushed her many times each day to no avail. Tried Lax-'Aire and she has stopped throwing up. She really likes the taste too. Just put the prescribed amount on my finger and she licks it off!! Thanks for a product that you don't have to force upon your pet!

This is the only hairball remedy my cats will use. They both love to lick it right from the tube. I've been buying it for my cats since 1989.

Is Lax'Aire for cats still produced and if so, when will it be available?

It is not likely that we will carry this product again soon as it does appear to be discontinued. I would recommend the Laxacat gel as a similar replacement product:
