Hi Mia,

Don't worry, cat eating dog food is not a big deal.

Give her one to two ounces of whole milk. It is a natural laxative that will bring on a BM in two hours or less.

You can try any ONE of these (not all at the same time).

An ounce of milk as that is a natural laxative

A half tsp of olive, fish or mineral oil. If you put some on her foot she may lick it off.

A tsp of canned pumpkin (not pie filling).

milk of magnesia or metimucil DOSAGE HERE:

An infant glycerin (only) suppository

Feed canned food with some warm water added.
