Our tuxedo cat has been struggling going to the litter box to poo.Sometimes she tries to poo but cannot,then she will throw up.
We have changed her food from dry to canned.We use Natural balance ,which is supposed to be limited ingredient.
she is also having hairballs pretty often,and we bought some Laxatone today.
I,m wondering if we should get some foods with a high fiber content,or something to make her poop??.Is canned pumpkin helpful??
We just want to get her through this rough patch so we can go to the vet,and be prepared to spend what it may cost.
I,ll never feed her dry food again,but the cans are expensive and sometimes she wont eat.When she does eat,she is finicky,and comes back to it later.I,m thinking its the canned food that is making her lose weight because of the carbs.She uses the litter box properly,and drinks water okay,and sounds sometimes like she has a hairball that she cant get rid of,and maybe its whats making it hard for her to poop.I thought canned foods would make her poop more,or more regular.She pooped yesterday after we bough some canned tuna with water or whatever is in the can,but a pet store cashier mentioned that too much tuna has mercury.
Next on the list is hairball treats,canned pumpkin.She used to love it when i fed her butter,but now she is reluctant to eat it at all.It was 1 or 2 times a week before,but we put a stop to that a few weeks ago.Just though the butter would help her poop.
So i guess we`re stuck.Thanks to anyone who can advise further.
