If your furry cutie is suffering from digestive discomfort caused by constipation or hairballs, the lubricant Laxatone might help. Be smart and savvy: Take action instead of just sitting back and watching your cat deal with upset stomach after upset stomach.
One benefit of Laxatone is that it's intended not only to lessen a cat's hairballs, but to keep them from forming in the first place. Hairballs aren't a joke. They can be very uncomfortable to cats, triggering hacking, retching, serious coughing -- the works. Until your cat expels the pesky clump, he could even have less appetite.
Constipation, too, is no fun for your precious pet. From the exhaustion and the vomiting to the stomach pain to the lack of appetite, the ailment can really take a major toll on your kitty. Laxatone gel is meant to give your pet's gastrointestinal tract a little much-needed moisture to get things moving along again.
One major plus to Laxatone is that it also comes in a 100 percent natural form, with purely natural components. The natural gel's lubricant properties are provided by cod liver and vegetable oils -- no intimidating ingredients that you can't pronounce.
Laxatone also works to give your fluff ball a relaxing and calming experience, through ingredients such as chamomile extract. If your cat is already stressed out and uncomfortable with a hairball or annoying constipation, he'll need any soothing he can get.
If your picky cat turns up his nose at icky medicinal tastes, he might appreciate Laxatone. The oral gel comes in two pretty exciting kitty flavors, catnip and tuna. The gel application is pretty straightforward. All you have to do is put a tiny dab of the product on your pet's paws or nose. Once he detects the scent, he'll very likely start licking it up -- success!
Always consult your veterinarian before you use any type of product, natural or not, on your cat. Ask the vet about Laxatone and its safety for your cat.
