Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** and I've been a veterinarian for 15 years. I'm sorry to hear about Spokes situation. How long ago did she vomit? Is she looking depressed?
Thank you for that information. Constipation can be a persistent issue with some cats due to underlying metabolic issues that dehydrate them or due to motility issues with the colon. Really severe cars are called megacolons and they definitely need a balanced approach to manage them through diet and medications. With your little one, could there be enough stools to need an enema? That is the unknown. I don't recommend an owner trying them at home as they are uncomfortable and messy. An enema should be done by a vet to have it done safely and effectively. As far as managing them with oral medications, I like Miralax as it can be mixed in soft food and taken pretty easily. Lactulose is another very good one. Could she have underlying renal issues that are making this happen easier? That is a consideration. Given her age, it would be best to have your vet assess her. When I use Miralax, I will use 1/4 teaspoon once to twice a day and then adjust as I see what the stools are doing. Here is a great link for you on all this.
Helps if I attach it. Sorry about that.
