Default Does anyone know of a good suppliment or food addative that will help...

...alleviate constipation in an older cat? We have 6 cats. We feed both wet & dry food. Simon (the oldest) although in relatively good physical shape has a problem with constipation. Our vet prescribed two stool softener pills and 2ml of cisapride daily. Simon is so finicky about which wet food he will eat we can't depend on him getting the cisapride by putting it in his wet food. Previously he was on lactulose and cisapride orally, but we have gone now to the stool softeners and cisapride, because trying to squirt 2 different liquids down his throat every day was too tramatic for him. He hides now out of fear of getting his medications. We are hoping someone knows of another suppliment or medication that cats will readily eat mixed with wet food or that is easily tolerated when given orally that will keep him regular. The softeners work for a couple weeks, when we can manage to get two down him daily and he doesn't later throw them up, but after about 3 weeks its back to the vet for another enema. Any Suggestions?

Try dairy products (occasionally.) Maybe the stool will run softer.
