Exclamation oy praying for poops

my 10 month old maine coon mix has been having constipation
I took him to the vet she said it was because he was transitioning to adulthood
and to give him laxatone
I spoke with my regular vet later and she said to give him a tsp of pumpkin and asked if he was on grain free
I told her his wet and one of his dry foods were but his third food had grain
he went 24 hours without a stool and finally went last night
but about an hour later he threw up mucous
What else can I do
I even rub his belly

I thought you managed to have a successful food transitioning ? When all my kitties reached that same age as Cupido,they never experienced what's so called 'transitioning to adulthood' ??
I transitioned the food gradually though.

Oh yes, Princess has sensitive stomach problem. So I put lactic acid (good) bacteria powder in her food -- and it helps her digestion system. Belly rubbing is also what I used to do !

Exclamation

GIVE HIM LOTS OF FATTY CREAM CHEESE ASAP SEVERAL TIMES A DAY.
It works. I can't give mine because it causes them diarrhea.

awwww.. I hope your boy will be fine soon. I found an article that provides tips on how to treat constipated cats.

wisegeek.com/what-should-i-do-for-my-constipated-cat.htm

Hope it helps.
