How do you treat feline constipation?

If your cat has started to show signs of constipation, you may be able to provide them some support from home. Early interventions can help prevent constipation from getting worse. The following can help:

-  Provide them fresh water.
-  Feed them wet food to increase water intake
-  Make sure they’re in a comfortable temperature to prevent over-heating
-  Provide them with some additional fiber, such as 100% plain canned pumpkin is commonly recommended
-  Consider probiotics to help encourage movement
-  Try a hairball digestive treatment if you suspect hairballs are causing an issue
-  Regular exercise      

If your cat experiences constipation that lasts for more than 24 hours, you should let your veterinarian know so they can advise you further.
