Gilbert would eat the whole tube if I let him. Seems to help with constipation. He has lost his front leg and is not an active cat and refuses to use a litter tray so difficult to monitor his movements so I give this weekly to ensure his bowels are working.

Q & A

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Laxapet Dog & Cat, including answers from our team.

Kitten cant poo

Shenaz Sheikh

How old does the kitten have to be for me to give it and will it help the cat to poo

  • VioVet Staff

This product should only be used alongside veterinary advice in kittens as it is very abnormal for a kitten to need a laxative like this. I strongly advise discussing this further with your local vet.

Can it be used long term


Can this product be used long term?
If not, what else can be used long term for hairballs?

  • VioVet Staff

Yes you can use this product at a dose of 1-2.5g three times per week in cats in the long term, whatever helps keep the stools at normal consistency and controls the hairballs.

Does it affect kidnies?

Ann Mayer

Please would you let me know whether Laxapet is safe for kidnies? My 14 year old tortie is at Stage 2 but is not taking medication. Thank you.

  • VioVet Staff

None of the ingredients in Laxapet will directly affect kidneys but I recommend running any supplement/food/mediation past your vet first. In late stages of kidney disease it is important to minimise any dietary changes as much as possible.

How long does it take to work for a cat with constipation

Carole Aldridge

How long does it take to work for cat's constipation?

  • VioVet Staff

This product should start noticeably softening your cat's stools within a day or two. If your cat is truly constipated and not producing any stools then I strongly advise seeing your vet as prescription medications may be required.

Waxy stools


my dog does very waxy motions which she struggles to pass would this product help she is a 14 year old Chihuahua?

  • VioVet Staff

It is worth trying Laxapet. It is a safe, lubricating product which should make it easier for her to pass stools. If possible, you should also add some fibre to her diet. A little cooked veg added to her food would help. (Not starchy like potato, but green veg or carrots are suitable.)
