Laxatone is rated 4.1466666666666665 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Molasses and Corn Syrup I have a very long haired cat. I have had products like this before and thought I would try this one. Even though it is TUNA flavored is is made to stick with molasses and corn syrup. She wont touch it. I put some on her foot thinking that she wasn't giving it a fair chance. She is not happy with me. I guess she doesn't have a sweet tooth.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Awesome My cat "Kitty" (yeah that's what we named him after getting him from my brother didnt do a great job naming him and he wasn't suppose to stay very long- it's been 2 years and my brother is not getting him back) had been throwing up a ton and the vet gave him Laxatone. At first he ate it when I put little bits on his cat treats but then suddenly refused to eat it. I read on the tube that you can put it on their nose or paw and I opted for his nose (I was afraid he'd get it on the couches or carpet if I put it on his paw). He always gives me the nastiest look when I wipe it on but he has no choice but to lick it off. Have had some funny moments when he jerks his head away as I'm putting it on (on his eye, eyebrow, forehead) and sometimes his nose will be a little crusty from the stuff but I just wipe it with a wet paper towel. I've noticed if I forget to give it to him every 2 days he throws up everywhere and I feel so bad for him. It's not a hairball issue and he usually throws up right after he's eaten. Not really sure what is going on with him but Laxatone has really helped.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT PRODUCT I have been using Laxatone for 13 years now. My tortie Chloe is medium hair and this product greatly reduces hairballs. I highly recommend it!

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 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.

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: akzidenzgrotesk
Whatever brand you chose to use, just make sure it has white petrolatum jelly as the first ingredient.
