Hello, this is Dr. Linda. I hope I can help with your question today.

I have had very impressive results using Royal Canin Gastrointestinal Fiber Response cat food. It requires a script like the Hill's food does, but I have managed many megacolon cats with this diet over some of the other ones.

I would also talk to your veterinarian about using a medication called cisapride to help manage Snow's megacolon.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any additional questions or concerns.

Thank you.
