    Probiotics?

    I was given Fortiflora from my vet for my cat who suffers from chronic constipation...he has become almost addicted to the powder that I sprinkle on his wet food daily (1 sachet as prescribed daily) and I read the ingredients list as he is drinking more water and peeing more though his recent...

    Miralax dosing and response time

    I've been dealing with chronic constipation with my Spazzie now for over 2 years and have tried everything in every possible combo ! So frustrating especially when I have a vet that doesn't ever seem to take it seriously ( I live in an isolated town so no options). He had 8 enemas within 18...

    Miralax dosing and response time

    My cat also suffers from chronic constipation. I live in Canada, Miralax goes by Restoralax and is exactly the same. He gets 1/4 tsp. twice daily and I mix it in chicken with broth baby food, about 1tbsp for each dose. It must be dissolved in liquid of some kind not just sprinkled or mixed in...

    Question on Miralax timing and ranatadine. Megacolon

    Hello darkhorse321 !  I was wondering if you could possibly share your massage techniques with us ? My Spazzie was diagnosed with chronic constipation, bordering on megacolon almost 3 years ago now and we have tried everything. I switched him from a fibre wet food diet to a low residue diet...

    Constipation Issues

    I've been wondering about that also but would it be the human ones? I have to take Spazzie to the vets tomorrow and I'll ask and report back.   I think part of the problem with this issue is all the contradictory info that our vets give us. Mine has said no fiber as it bulks up the stool and...

    Constipation Issues

    I hope that my regimen of mixing it with the "chicken with broth" baby food is right  I mix it and let it sit while he eats his regular meal and then he licks it all off the spoon. I wonder if I prepped the daily doses in the baby food and kept it in the fridge if that would work too. The baby...

    Constipation Issues

    I feel your pain having lived with this issue with my Spazzie for the last year or so. It is so frustrating to try and control. Some vets say add fiber, others say low residue so as not to bulk up the stool. My regimen is Restoralax ( same as Miralax) 1/4 tsp x twice daily. I mix it in baby food...

    Constipation before and after his enema..

    Thank you ! He still doesn't go regularly but I figure every 2-3 days is far better than not at all! Maybe that is his norm. I give him 1/4 tsp Restoralax X 2 daily and Laxatone also, approx. 3X weekly.He still eats very well and is his usual doofus self so maybe I need to calm down and just...

    Constipation before and after his enema..

    Happy Sunday everyone !  Just a question please ? I have been adding 1/4sp. of Restoralax x2 daily to Spazzie's wet food and wondering if there are any long term side effects from daily usage. It helps a little, trying to keep his colon moving at least ! I also give him Laxatone 3x weekly. Thank...

    Constipation before and after his enema..

    Thank you and I will definitely check out the site you shared. I took him to the vets yesterday with a sample of his "black' BM and his vet old me it was nothing to worry about but it was full of hair, matted and twisted which could be blocking his colon. I brush and comb him daily but he is a...

    Constipation before and after his enema..

    Thank you again ! I left a message with the vet last night, 6PM and still waiting. I did explain the problem in the message. He is eating well, playing, everything normal that way. His gums are nice and pink. I thought possibly since he has only pooped twice in over a week, since his last enema...

    Constipation before and after his enema..

    Well Spazzie has finally pooped, actually twice now in 5 days but today it was black and soft and sticky like tar. Could I be giving him too much Restoralax (Miralax)? He is eating well and otherwise normal. Any advice please?
