Mineral Oil Cured Cat Constipation

by Denise Casey
(LATROBE, PA)

After spending $600 (USD) to treat my 20 year old cat’s major constipation, I finally gave her small doses of mineral oil mixed up with her wet food.

After one day, the problem was solved.

You must be careful with the dosage. Don’t think too much is great.

Just start a little bit at a time. One half teaspoon or tea spoon will work.

Lactolose did not work for my cat. I was at the end of the rope. This home remedy saved my cats life.

Hi Denise… Thanks for sharing your experience.

Lactulose Solution is a human constipation relief medication for people who haven’t heard of it. It is USA/Canada based.

Sometimes mineral oil does not work and some cat owners recommend unsweetened Metamucil added to a cat’s wet cat food. This has good ‘reviews’ from some people. It should be limited in use. And make that sure he drinks plenty of water.

Note: Seek veterinarian advice when appropriate.
