Can you give a cat laxatives?

Which ones and how much?


Answer by  GK1 (152)

Laxatives can be effective in relieving constipation in cats. There are many options from which to choose. There may be a natural remedy that can be used. Since diet could be the cause of constipation, a change of diet and/or more exercise may be an easy solution. Check with your veterinarian before making a decision.

Never, ever give human medication to any animal, most especially a dog or cat. If you feel your cat has bowel issues, take it to the veterinarian. There is an enormous difference in treating a cat than treating a human being and should not be undertaken by anyone but a veterinarian.

Cats can be given a product to help aid travel through the digestive tract, such as Laxatone. This product is helpful with hairballs.

Please do not give your cat laxatives. You will not like the resulting mess that happens.Give your cat wet canned food for a few days.

No, because of the size of the cat, and the fact that it is a cat, you should not give them medication intended for humans. Give cat medications only.
