Constipation is common in elderly cats and can be a significant concern in cats of any age. Constipation is often a recurrent problem and can be difficult to manage. Multiple medical and environmental factors can impact on cats and their defecatory habits. Sarah will discuss new effective options for management of both acute/severe constipation and more mild/recurrent cases including use of osmotic laxatives, stimulant medications, diets, advice for providing ‘optimal’ litter boxes and recommendations for the remainder of the home environment and home care.
