    Hey Guys

    I know this may be a strange question on this site but my kitties seem to eat fuzz, dust or anything else they can. I am diligent about keeping thing as clean as possible but they will pull a fluff off the bath mat and eat it. I have been giving them some laxatone every few days because i am worried things could get stuck. Has anyone else used it? Anything that is bad about it? They seem to really like it and I just worry something is going to get stuck.

    Thanks

    I have used it with haired cats and it worked fine. Just keep an eye on any allergic reactions.:ThumbsUp:

    Pooped strings? Hahahha, that sounds like something Butterball would do. I haven't noticed anything unusual in Ball's poop but he's pretty diligent about covering it up. He likes fuzz too. He's been really big into bugs lately. I might find a june bug skeleton in his poop pretty soon.

    The vet gave it to us when Athena ate the turkey bone to help her pass it without getting stuck, it worked good but I think on a regular basis it would cause some yucky runny poop.

    I used laxatone when I had Maine Coons too. The sphynx also got it because they spent a lot of time grooming the MCs and they'd spit up hairballs. But I quit using it when the last MC died. I see no reason to give it to hairless cats unless they're exposed to hairy critters and regularly groom them.
