My guys are not too crazy about Royal Canindry or canned SD.  They do like 
Royal Cannin Extreme Hairball dry.  I don't feed it as food, but as a treat.  
It seems to help Casey who has long, fine hair and is always getting hairballs.

 If you read the labels, so much of the high priced dry is really crap food 
 loaded with corn and byproducts.  It's appalling what is out there on pet 
 store shelves.

 Science Diet is really crappy food, and it's wrong of vets to push
 it. Not many people read labels or understand what low quality food
 it is, and they buy it because their vets sell it.  I'm sure vets get
 a kick back from the company.

Purportedly egg yolk lethicin dissolves hairballs, but I've not tried it.

Check out Dr. Deva Khalsa, author of The Natural Dog.   I don't recommend
her for homeopathics, but she is very up on research and does telephone
