My ziggy is having bowel motility problems
I mentioned this in the new cat thread so thanks for anyone who answered there. I have a new furbaby boy called Ziggy who had been found dying on the road after being hit by a car. He had internal injuries and had his tail amputated.
He was supposed to be fully recovered but I noticed when I got him home that he didn't use the litter tray as much as my other cats. I took him to the vets and since then I have been giving him Lactalose at 2ml twice a day.
This has softened his stools but he just doesn't seem to get the urge to go. Which according to the vet means he might need to go on motility drugs. But she also said that if we put him on those its likely that they will only work for a short time and then he will need an operation.
We are giving him a few weeks but I'd really like him to go naturally. We don't have pureed pumpkin in the UK and it isn't really normal constipation. Does anyone have any ideas? I have him on a mainly wet food diet - I have now got him on a special high fibre wet food from the vets.
