She has issues with constipation. I'm wondering if a product like Metamucil would be safe to give to her on a daily basis to help with that?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?
Customer: a female cat around 10 yrs old
JA: OK. Welcome! What's going on with your cat?
Customer: I can tell she has a hard time going to the bathroom. I gave her Miralax for three days (suggested by a vet) and after the third day she had a huge bowel movement and also passed a hairball. So hairballs may be contributing to it. But she's not a big fan of the hairball paste.
JA: What is the cat's name?
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about billy?
Customer: Normally when she poops it's like pebbles. She may only poop every three days. When she had the huge bowel movement from the Miralax, they were huge long turds and some very dark coloration in it. Her food
support from Hill's diet as her kidney enzymes were high. She drink a ton of water and her urine in diluted. When she tried to poop, she continually inches forward and does outside the littler box. On rare occasion she will also throw up after she is able to poop.
JA: Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did billy eat anything unusual?
Customer: Not that I'm aware of. It seems to me the throw up is related to the constipation.
