Lactulose Solution 58 58
GREAT PRODUCT...GREAT PRICE My HORSE is a slender 15.5./16 pound cat. He was a throw-away when we discovered him bawling pitifully in our yard late fall when he was about 10 months old...14 years ago. He was a bag of bones and couldn't even eat regular food...we had to give him pablum and baby food to get him started eating. He has always had larger, dry stools but about 3 months ago he really started struggling. He could barely go and became slightly distended. He actually got almost totally bound up, That necessitated a trip to the vet with an overnight stay that included 3 enemas. Poor guy. She put him on 1 ml of Lactulose twice a day. He didn't realy enjoy having to drink it so we mix half a ml in two feedings of soft food morning and night. This stuff works wonderfully. He goes much easier and his stools are a little less large, but then he is a big boy. I was delighted to find it at PetMeds at considerably less cost then the vet charges as he will remain on it the rest of his life. We are so blessed to have caught this before it became megacolon and to find it at a reasonable cost here at PetMeds. I surely does work. 03/19/2011
Gets the job done Our big cat with mega colon hates Lactose and puts up a fight (with claws), when administered orally, but it really gets the job done. He doesn't eat it if mixed with food. We told him it was either this stuff or his life was going to be short-lived. It takes 2 of us to administer 6 cc daily. Without Lactulose solution, he would be totally blocked. He's 9 years old - acts like a kitten when he's regular - and really a loving and precious guy. I'm so greatful for this product, which I understand is safe for long-term use. I rate this product "5" for effectiveness, but not for taste (sweet syrup) and ease of use. 08/22/2014
My (rescue) Lab Maggie has hepatic encephalopathy due to a damaged liver of unknown causes-- so her liver can no longer process protein, therefore the ammonia levels build up in her blood causing life threatening problems-- after a week in the ER hospital it now is under control with diet and 2 to 3 doses of lactulose daily to remove the ammonia. I am very happy with the results, she will have to remain on this medication for the rest of her life, thank goodness it is working for her and doing exactly what it is suppose to do-- I definitely recommend this product for this problem. 07/22/2014
Best product I've ever used! Little Bitz is a rescue cat who would not be alive without this medication. It's so easy to mix in with his food that he doesn't even know it's there. This has kept him happy and very healthy for 4 years now. We tried other products but this is by far the most efficient and convenient. 07/05/2014
Lactulose really helps! My cat Skunky is 14 years old. She developed cirrhosis of the liver several years ago. As long as she takes her Lactulose once a day, she does well. If she experiences difficulty, I give her an extra dose in the evening. She also had diabetes, but it has been cured due to her high protein diet. She acts like a kitten now. 05/11/2014

Talk to other pet lovers about this product.
Is this version (the one sold on 1800petmeds) unflavored?
The version I got from my vet is pina colada flavored which is not great for cats.
Under what conditions would Lactuose be given to a cat for an extended amount of time? Possibly on a permanent basis?
Answer:¬†Yes, Lactulose can be given to a cat on a permanent basis. My four year old cat will have to take Lactulose for the rest of her life.
This was per my vet. If I stop the medicine, the problem will reoccur. She has cronic constipation. Make sure to give your cat a dosage recommended by your vet.
Answer:¬†The Lactulose that I get from PetMeds is not any different from the type that you would get from a pharmacy for people. I have had this medication from my doctors prescription for constipation and found out from him that it's the same stuff, just that the pharmacy dispense it in smaller quantities.
He has been on this drug along with cisapride for three years for mega colon.
Answer:¬†My cat too has mega colon, and is taking cisapride with lactulose. In the begining he also was taking it multiple times a day, but he developed diarrhea so now I only give him his pill and 3ml of lactulose in the morning. I also greatly reduced his dry food intake which causes dry stools and give him canned food which is mostly water which is what they need in them to not get constipation I buy 2 bottles at a time. I suggest you call PetMeds and they can estimate the cost for you. They have THE BEST price for this medication.
