Customer Question

My cat Bravo is mainly on moist food, he drinks TONS of water and per your advice on my last contyact, I supllement with potassium to keep him from "going down" again. That has been a real life saver.BUT, recently I'm noticing he's having trouble pooping, and when he does it's ery dry and hard. Can I give him magnesium citrate? If not, what can I do. Today he's breathing very hard and "straining" to go, now not necessarily in the box, which usually means he's in distress. HELP!
