Hi, thanks for your question, I'm a licensed veterinarian and I'll be happy to help.

Fortunately, Taytay is not likely to be harmed or get sick from this Ex-lax. Some soft stool or even some diarrhea might occur, but this should last 24 hours or less, and would not usually require any veterinary care.

Thank you. She is having some sort of reaction to Trifexis and has not pooped in two days. I guess this could possibly be a good thing.
