Recent surgery

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
One of my ferals got pretty ripped up the other day. She had to be stitched, she was ripped from her mid belly to her rear, but it only involved the fat wall (Thank God) She has been home almost two days now, and she is eating and drinking and moving slowly, but no defecation yet. Is there something I can add to her canned food to help move her bowels? The injury was pretty extensive, and I am sure she is really sore and moving her bowels is the last thing she wants to do. I have made a tentative appointment tomorrow with my vet to bring her in, but in the meantime, is there something I could do? I am thinking mineral oil??

Try Laxatone it is an effective laxative and lubricant combination Just dab it on you cats nose, mouth and they will lick it off. It
comes in a tube and cost somewhere between $6-8 - you can purchase it in places like Petco. .Good Luck to you and your little one.

Other alternatives, fiber based are to add a spoonful of canned pumpkin or bran wheat.
