Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great supplement! Gracie's appetite has improved 100% thanks to Laxatone. I'm sure that she feels better, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelieveable Have an extremely finicky long haired cat -- throwing up all the time from hair balls. Ordered Laxatone and she loves it -- licks it off my finger -- since taking it no more throw up, just a little cough sometimes and then she just passes hair balls in her stools. So much nicer -- definitely recommend this for long haired cats!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works for dogs too Our Akita was stolen and was badly abused. She made it home after 4 nights missing. She was hit at the base of her tail and cannot curl it. She screamed when trying to eliminate, hurt so badly. Our Vet gave us laxatone to help keep things "greased". She does much better after giving this to her - 2 times daily. After home 7 weeks can curl tail abit, but not the way it was. Hopefully with more time she will be able to. If your pet has trouble with elimination, try this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great and my cats love it. Try putting Laxatone on your cats canned food...no fuss no muss! My cats eat it with no problem and enjoy the taste.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New formula is fine. I have been using Laxatone ORIGINAL flavor for a long time and was distressed when my latest shipment of "original" was a different formula. Now it is maple flavor and "gel." However, to my surprise my cat liked the flavor, and the consistency seems to be a little less thick. Since my cat hates the tuna flavor, I am relieved that the new formula is pleasing to him. I must recommend that this product be given very soon after removing from the tube. It will harden like old-fashioned toothpaste if left exposed to air.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This product works well with our cat. Drastically reduced the amount of hairballs. She even likes the flavor and she is very picky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful My furchild has had issues with constipation and my vet gave me Laxatone a few weeks back and it has worked great. PussKitty loves it, she licks it right off my finger. Wonderful product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great product, Ive been giving it to my 7 year old tabby, the vet showed me a trick in giving it to her cause she will not eat it on her own. Put your thumb and forefinger on each side of her mouth and open it, she wont be able to close her mouth, make sure you dab the Laxitone on your other fore finger then wipe it on the roof of her mouth using her top front teeth as a scraper to get it all in her mouth, then release her and she will lick it off the roof of her mouth for a few minutes. This product saved my cats life, she had a terrible hair ball blockage in her intestines. I give it twice a week, shes getting use to "Medicine Time". I strongly recommend this product.

Yes I live in the desert in Palm Springs CA. where the temp gets to 125 degrees and it arrives a little runny but not hurt in any way just let it adjust to room temperature, it will be fine.

Which is more effective: this or hairball plus?

I have a Maine Coon mix who tends to throw up a lot in the spring. He's also on the heavy side (currently on Prescription Diet for weight loss) and over 10 years old. Which is the better option for his needs?
Asked by: Anonymous
Whatever brand you chose to use, just make sure it has white petrolatum jelly as the first ingredient.
