    Help My Cat’s Constipation Issues!

    Topic: Cats

    Hi Dr. Jan,
    I spoke to Tylor on the Pet Wellbeing site and he suggested I send you an email regarding my cat's constipation issues.

    Smooth BM Gold - Natural Support for Cat Constipation (300+ Reviews)  $43.95 Buy NowI started feeding my cat a lot of cooked chicken, which our holistic vet for our dog said is good for her but I know I probably overdid it (& their systems are sensitive and the food has to be balanced) because all of a sudden she got constipated. I took her to the vet for the constipation and they said she has hyperthyroidism T4 level is 5.6. This was about 3 weeks ago.

    They gave her an enema. I switched to Paul Newman's canned food and mix it with water, a wonderful organic pro-bi mixture (which also contains organic aloe vera, organic peppermint, organic dandelion extract, organic ginger extract). I have given her organic olive oil, organic coconut oil, laxatone to try different things. Pumpkin does not seem to do anything.

    I took her to the vet for another enema a few days ago and fluids and she looked and acted great. She went to the bathroom on Day 1, Day 2, Day 3 and Day 4 is today and she did not go again.


    Do you have any diet recommendations and I saw a constipation remedy on Pet Wellbeing?

    I am at my wit's end with this constipation issue. I want to switch her food eventually if I can find a high quality human grade or organic that is better than Paul Newman's. Do you have any suggestions?

    Hi Sheri,

    I would try the Smooth BM Gold but I would also wonder about this cat's kidneys as many times older cats have underlying kidney issues and need extra fluids. Miralax is not such a horrible thing--you could also try lactulose.

    I would be happy to speak with your vet if he or she wishes to contact me.

    Best to you,
