  • 2 litre Bottle (Light) £13.99

Liquid paraffin has a range of uses including as a laxative and a lubricant. Liquid paraffin can be administered to lubricate and soften stools, facilitating movement through the bowel and ultimately their expulsion. Liquid paraffin can also be used to treat furballs in cats as it binds hairs enabling them to be passed through the digestive system and excreted. Suitable for human use also.

Plse can you give me a rough idea of the ideal dosage for a dog of the above weight, just to keep him regular? My dog is agrophobic so tends to "hang on" too long! Many thanks.

You could give up to about 40mls (two tablespoonsful) with each meal if required, though constant use is not normally needed and might cause some trouble in time. I would tend to use it on alternate days and see how things go, but you can adjust that as required in time according to how well he is doing.
