I guess its like peat moss is for garden soil....soaks up and holds extra moisture but keeps it from drying out and turning into cement...Probably more of a preventive
than a cure...Some of us old people understand about the need for fiber....

If the problem is a bacteria or physical problem it may not help that much though...


Well, I've known it as a cure (source of fiber?) for diarrhea - don't know if it works as a laxative too, some things deal with both... For example, homeopathic Nux Vomica is in many cases a solution for both.

But lactulose is a solution for constipation (as is vitamin C), and not diarrhea.

Can someone remind me, is pumpkin supposed to be a laxative, or a cure for diarrhea? Some people on the Sphynx rescue list are feeding it to their cats as treats, and I'm curious as to if this is a good idea (will feeding it to "normal" cats make them get diarrhea or become constipated?)

Bazil's caretaker collects labels and sends them to KMR, where they add up until she earns a free can of formula!
PLEASE save your KMR kitten formula labels for Bazil!
If you use KMR, even just one can, please email me for the NEW address to send them to!
Does your cat have chronic diarrhea that does not respond to treatment, or has your cat been loosely diagnosed as IBD? Have you tested for Tritrichomonosis? The test is new, the new drug makes it curable.
Ask me today how you can test for Trich!
