Thanks for the input guys. There is alot of talk about how good pumpkin is to give a cat suffering from constipation. But, there isn't much info on what's enough or, more important, too much.
I know common sense says start small, and I know cats systems are all slightly different, but how would you know if it wasn't working? I mean, is there a chance that it could do more harm than good?
I'm asking this because I have been feeding pumpkin, about a tablespoon a day, to my cat for a couple of weeks and my cat has not moved his bowels for 8 days. He's going to the vet in the morning at 7:30. He is passing gas. I started the thread: Impacted stools, kitty can't poop
I'm just wondering if pumpkin can have the opposite effect in animals that suffer from chronic constipation. He just refuses to eat if the lactulose is mixed in his food. And I'm talking days.
It's easy to understand what cats want, just listen to what they say...MEeee NOWwww
In loving memory of Bugs, forever I will miss.
