  2. No, I wouldn’t use it now that I know there are better alternatives. We had one cat with unusual issues despite being on canned food, which usually prevents constipation. WINN Feline Foundation published or shared study showing PEG, polyethylene glycol, was safe for long term use. It’s available under store brands as well as commercial labels. If switching to canned or balanced raw doesn’t help, keep feeding canned or raw and ask your vet for info on dose of PEG. I’d recommend looking up constipation on the non commercial catinfo.org
