    My 5 year old (very fluffy) dog has been getting hairballs every few months. Does anyone know what I can do to prevent them? I already brush him every week to get rid of as much loose fur as I can. What else should I be doing???

    Maybe he needs more stimulation — my pup licks herself when she's bored or anxious, but she has cut back every since I started giving her some rawhide chewies.

    I agree with Rebecca.

    Extra fluffy dogs tend to have issues with hairballs. Giving him some more chew toys will probably help him out!

    Thanks for the tips! I'll try some rawhide chewies and let you know how it goes :)
