Hello, I am sorry to hear you are worried about Turbo. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help. Is he eating, and drinking? The best enemas for cats are DSS enemas: A mild, warm soapy water enema is my next choice, but you have to be careful not to give too much. The Pet Enema is much safer, premeasured and easy to administer. Sometimes with constipation we have to reach in and manually remove the stool that is causing the blockage. Is he taking methimazole for his hyperthyroidism? Or just the Y/D?
