Hello, Buddy has been taking Miralax since we adopted him in July. He came to us very constipated. We started him on Miralax 1/4 tspn a day in late July. He has improved to having pretty normal daily poop for the last 3 week or so. It took a while to get to this point. The history we know from his previous home said he had digestion issues almost the whole time they had him (a year). Sounds like constipation as the notes said he would get really bloated and then have very stinky poop. We have tapered him down to 1/8 tspn a day. Any opinions/experience on how long is safe for him to be on Miralax? He is 2+ years old. I'd like to work towards weaning him totally off of it. He eats only wet food, and I add water to it. He is grain free fed, as he has food allergies, and we aren't sure if grain may be involved. He eats Instinct LID rabbit, Soulisitc Lamb (has tuna listed after the lamb in the ingredients), and Meat Mates lamb.
