Thanks so much for your response Judy. Nice to know someone who can trade info with.
My cat that is having the problems with impacted bowels name is Kenya. By the way I have a total of 8 cats, yes I'm beginning to think I'm nuts, lol.
No, I love each and every one of my cats, each is different.
He seemed to do okay this weekend. Doctor has him on constulose, 1 ml, liquid, 2x's a day, a laxative and reglan 5 mg tab/ 1/2 tab 2 x a day, for nausea.
When I registed at this site I was also looking at a site named http://www.vetinfo.com
which also had a lot of info, look it up as soon as you can. Some good suggestions there. One that I tried today, and worked was to put the cat somewhere it can be left alone by everyone, and have a litter box available. I left Kenya in there for about 1/2 hour and he pooped, alleluiah. So, I think I will continue to try that everyday when I get home from work.
Also, the administrator of the site http://www.spoilyourpet.com
sent me some interesting info about some products. One being Azmira NatuFiber, which helps clean the intestines. And means helps with more regular bowel movements. Also recommended a natural digestive supplement called Prozyme, which helps him digest his food easier, and digest more food, which means less poop buildup. Also recommended a more natural food. Currently I am feeding him Hills cd/s and hairball senior, for when he is surfing the food and 9 Lives can mixed with pumpkin equally, plus about 1 tsp of mineral oil, 2x a day, morning and evening. Also a couple licks of Felaxin, which is for hairballs, which he has alot. He is solid white and constantly cleans himself, and he sheds more than any of my cats.
He also told me about the natural foods which are called Azmira and Solid Gold, which have natural fiber sources such as fruits and veggies, much better than beet pulp and peanut hulls, which he said is in even the better foods, such as Hills. He indicated all of the stuff he was recommending is on their site.
By the way, I know what you mean about the money issue. Already have spent almost $200 on vet care for this illness. But if these suggestions help, I would rather spend the money for better products instead of emergency runs to the vet.
So, I'll let you know what products I end up trying and if they help.
Thanks bunches for your info, hope mine will help you and your kitty too.
