Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi there- I am Dr. Kane and I will attempt to assist you with Missy today. Sorry to hear she is having some trouble! Constipation in cats is a fairly common issue, and there can be a few different underlying causes for this. One would be something that is causing overall dehydration which results in drying out of the stools (kidney disease, diabetes, or any illness that results in her not drinking enough water). Other possibilities are inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), or a GI motility disorder. It would be a good idea to get her checked by her veterinarian to help determine whether she is experiencing one of these disorders. In the meantime, you can try adding Miralax powder to her food- 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon twice daily. Continue to give her the canned food- as the extra water should help with hydration. Has this helped?
