That said, we run a small cat rescue for senior cats who have a higher frequency of hairball and digestive issues than the majority of younger cats, and a couple of them really like this product. They have turned up their little feline noses at several other products and flavors, including catnip (!), tuna, chicken and maple, which some of the other cats like, but will lick this right out of the spoon and beg for more. Tiny Tim is especially fond of it which is great because he has constipation issues and this really seems to have helped.
I plan to order more and am also going to recommend it to my sister who has Birmans with hairball issues.
I tried to give her petroleum free natural gels but
they are difficult to give and ineffective.
The most effective turned to be the Dechra Cat lax gel but it contains petrolatum and sodium benzoate which are toxic for the cats. So in search of safer products, I bought this LaxaCat gel. it turned to be impossible to give to any of my 3 cats. When you squeeze it, the oil is coming out and the gel flows like a liquid syrup all over your fingers. The cats do not want to open their mouth, I cannot force them to take it.
The gel ended up in a garbage can.
