Hi! My female cat Mimi has the same issue than Bruce. I think she is worse because she needs to be manually pee expressed otherwise she gets UTI. The constipation has became a serious issue in the last 6 monts. yesterday was the fourth timewe take her to the vet to get manually unplugged. She gets sedated, it is such a trauma. I did a glycerine enema, gave her lactulose, nothing, so we had to take her. Doctor used COCA COLA! For her enema. And it destroyed the hard a rock poop she had inside, it was just liquid poop coming out after. The issue is that she only eats fancy feast. In Peru that is one of the few cat canned foods we get. We have Whiskasas well. The issue with fancy feast is that is not moist or jellied enough. And also I see ghe second larger ingredient is liver. The doctor asked me when he was unplugging her: does she eat liver? I said no! Only fancy feast but after I got home and read the ingredients, she is getting liver there. Is this an issue?
He did mention megacolon. We will xray her. She can't eat dry food because is too dry. And the canned food is not good enough. What do you mean by raw food? Like raw fish? Raw chicken?
I wish I didnt have to feed her anymore so we didnt startthe issue again
this is so sad and traumatic for Mimi.
Her stool is big compared to my other ("normal") larger cat.
Sometimes when poop is felt in her anus, I press and it comes out. But sometimes I can feel it inside, not yet into the anus but almost there, I press and I feel I am just clumping it all together! And it does not come! Then thr urine blockage occurs and our drama starts!
Can she eat the Hills for gastrointestinal issues? Canned or the dry food?
Thanks from a distressed mother
