I am dealing with a sick kitty over here, and part of his therapy is giving him Petromalt to help him pass a hairball. Imagine my surprise when I looked at the tube and saw that the #1 inactive ingredient is BARLEY MALT SYRUP.

Please be careful and wash your hands thoroughly if you have cats and Celiac and use this product.

Thanks for the warning. In the 'old' days we used to put a small amount of butter on the kitties paws once a day to help with hairballs. Get a good hairbrush for the kitty and brush him a couple times a day to help prevent them and if your kitty will let you use the vacuum cleaner hose on him that can help also. Some cats hate it but some enjoy it.
I hope you kitty is feeling much better soon.
