What can be done with constipated cats without a $300 vet bill?
By TBob from Dallas, TX
Vet had me once feed my cat tuna packed in oil, without draining the oil. He also suggested i add olive or veggie oil to her food but, if its an indoor cat, prepare for a possible mess when it works. :(
Per my vet, for my guy that gets constipated from hairballs:
1/4 tsp of flavorless Metamucil mixed in with his wet food everyday for a week then cut back to every other day. No more issues, he goes with out straining and doesn't cough up them hairballs hardly ever.
Add about a tablespoon of canned pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling) to some canned cat food. Our cat thinks it's a real treat. It really helps with their digestion.
Put a little not over l/4 cc of mineral oil in their canned food one time a day and that takes care of hair balls and constipation too. Cats don't know it is there. Got that from my vet years ago.
