 Re: Need Help for Constipated Cat

Well, she finally deposited maybe 3" worth of poop, hard but not black. I syringed miralax into her and then the cat laxative came, so I dosed her with that. She got a second dose this morning. She was wormed when I first took her to the vet, he said the barrelness was her being fat, but I wonder. I plan to give her a bit more miralax tonight, just a little, and then another dose of laxative tomorrow. Unless she goes more today, in which case I'll play it by ear. She has never seemed uncomfortable with it. I'll get some pumpkin. Getting her to eat it will be the issue, she seems picky.

You said she poops every other day, which means things are moving at least. What are the poops like? Runny, hard, small, large, black? That could help determine what the issue could be. If they seem to be normal like they should be then maybe she just doesn't go everyday. I'd suggest giving her canned pumpkin. It's very good for their stools no matter what the issue is.

The "barrell-ness" could mean she's very backed up and can only be fixed by a vet but it could also mean she's just fat or has worms. Has she been wormed?

I have no tips get the miralax down, sorry. But I had a cat that would only drink running water, like out of the faucet. She refused to drink from a bowl no matter how often I changed it.

If she does need surgery I hope you will at least try to find a rescue group that might take her. Many of them won't, but some do.

Bless you for taking her in and I'm sorry it's not going well. I have no animal expertise, only experience.

Good luck

Even though they're vaccinated it still sounds like kennel cough. If you do a search for honking cough that is what's gonna come up. It's also highly contagious which explains why they all have it. A reverse sneeze sounds similar but it would be unlikely for all the dogs to have that.

You need to boost their immune system. Give them vits A, B, D & E. Also coconut oil and honey are good for this also. This link has some great things you can try including a cough syrup.

Well, no poops since the last post. Neither cat ate the tuna with olive oil. I tried to get some miralax down her-1/8 tsp in some water, syringed it into her mouth, but she didn't take much and then started biting me, so I let her go. So, no poops since Wed. She eats. I can't see anything by looking at her butt, no irritation or anything out of the ordinary. She acts okay, plays with her toys actively, but I can't tell that she's drinking a bunch of water or not, I rarely see either cat drinking (I keep several bowls around the house, such as in the bathroom, which I fill every day. Anyone have suggestions? I'm getting worried and don't really have the money to pay a vet to do an enema or even surgery. I'd have to put her down.

Treating Addison's in Cats

I have a Maine Coon mix who seems to get sick every few months. I read briefly about Addisons and heard that it can often mimic other illnesses like URI and similar. Does anyone have any experience or info on Addisons in cats? I prefer to treatment animals at home, if I can help it, because there is always pressure at the vet to vacvinate which I feel causes more problems.

Need Help for Constipated Cat

I rescued a siamese cat, maybe around 8 years old, who weighs 13.5 pounds. She is very round, like a barrel. She's on Purina One food that the vet recommended because it's high protein, the dry kibble because she makes a mess with wet food. She stays inside mostly. I noticed yesterday that I've been scooping several urine clumps daily, but poop only every other day. (I have another cat, thin and agile, so she must be doing hers outside). I right away put olive oil in some tuna mashed together for her to eat. The vet recommends miralax or laxaire. How would I get the miralax down her? The laxaire is apparently a paste that they like the taste of. This was last night, no poop this morning and I've been at work all day so don't know if she ate the tuna or pooped today. I feel so bad, I just thought she was lazy and fat, but now I wonder if she's not backed up. Any suggestions? I don't want to do something that both cats would get into because the other one is in great shape. This poor thing, she had fleas and such bad skin and missing fur, we finally got that straightened out and now this.

So thankful you shared your full experience of successfully curing dog cataracts with hexane free organic castor oil. How much, how often and how long till you began to see results? How long did you continue after seeing cataracts disappear?

I have 5 dogs, 2 Yorkie. Japanese chin, chihuahua, and chorkie. They all seem to have developed a honking cough over the last couple of days. Don't think it is kennel cough, they have all been vaccinated. I'm scared! Can't afford to get them to vet. Please help. Any homeopathic remedies?

I took my 5 month old pup to banfield for final shots they gave him the Lyme disease shot. A couple of days later I noticed he is hardly eating now 4 day after shot he has a limp. I called the vet they say to monitor it and if it gets worse they will do a check. I will not recommend this shot, not at the expense of all these side effected.

Sorry Nicole, for not responding sooner, but I do not have internet at home and due to the COVID restrictions have not been getting out and about. Anyway, to answer your question about dosage, Flower weighs about 70 lbs and I gave her 1 tablespoon 3 to 4 times a day orally and sprayed the lump with silver every chance I could. It took a few weeks before I saw any changes, and the lump got worse before it got better, but do not lose hope. Colloidal silver is very powerful and will help cure a lot of ailments. I am currently using it along with ACV to treat a rash of candida and it is doing wonders. I also have a very good friend whose naturopath prescribed colloidal silver 800 ppm (yes, that is correct, 800 ppm) to treat a bone marrow infection. You just have to keep it up until all signs and symptoms are gone. I hope that is helpful. Flower's Mom

Ginger For Itchy Dogs

My dog was diagnosed with probable food allergies. He spent two weeks on drugs that made him tired and unhappy. Despite changing his food away from chicken, he began itching again. I gave him a capsule of ginger emptied over his meaty food and he stopped itching immediately. 12 hours later and he is still fine! I hope this is a cure for my little dog.

  Borax on Carpet for Fleas

Sprinkle borax on carpets and sweep it in with a broom. It is dehydrating and kills fleas. Harmless for dogs, even if they lick it some. It is actually good for them in very small quantities. It helps with arthritis. Look it up here and/or look up Walter Last and borax to read more about it.

How much were you giving your dog and what is her weight? I've been giving this to my cat and have been seeing some def improvements but it's slow. For months no improvement so I know it's the silver water. Just wondering how much I can up his dose safely…
