Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved Ace Ventura! Ace Ventura has megacolon and was so backed up I had to give him enemas. Once he was clear, the vet recommended Lactulose and I give 1/2 teaspoon before each meal and he is no longer backed up or straining! This product saved Ace Ventura!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! My cat has been diagnosed with megacolon. I give 2ml twice a day (Morning & Evening) to a 16lb. cat. I have tried different doses and once a day and he will be back to the vet. I have been doing this dose for about 1 year and he is doing great. He went in recently to get a blood check and his results were good. I went to my compounding pharmacy to purchase a dark color bottle and a adapt a cap and a 1ml syringe to fit the cap. It is so easy to dispense, just put the syringe in the cap and turn the bottle upside down and pull down 1 ml. This keeps it clean with no mess because this solution is sticky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boots has been on lactulose for almost a year now. It was recommended by our vet. He no longer has a problem with mega colon. He is a much happier cat. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Vet suggested Skeeter be on Lactalose for his Mega Colon. Although the vet did not give me the right amount he required, by doing research I found he needed a lot more because he is a very large cat. He is not doing much better.

Questions

Do you drink water after taking the solution?

Asked by: Kalimah19
Thank you for your question. It is not a listed requirement for your pet to drink water after administering the medication. Lactulose may be mixed with fruit juice, water, or milk to improve the taste.

Vet sold me Lactulose that has a 2/18 date in the bottom of the container.  It’s now 7/19.  Is it safe to give to my cat?

Asked by: Shari
Administering a drug beyond it's expiration date is never recommended.

Can you put Lactulose in the cat's food or water if they eat it all at that setting? or is it best to syringe directly? My cat fights me, regardless of my methods when trying to squirt it in his mouth, but will eat it up no problem with wet food.

I see from 3 years ago this product is not flavored. Is that still the case? I am looking for Lactulose that is green and banana flavored. Thank you.

Asked by: ADLKS
The lactulose that we currently have in stock is Actavis Brand Fresenius Kabi MFTR. It is a natural colored unflavored solution.

Asked by: Richard barket
Hello Richard, thank you for your question. I am very sorry to hear about your situation. Unfortunately, Lactulose solution requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

Ok mydog doctor gave my dog lactulose but he said every 12 hours but my timeming to give him the lactulose is at 4 in the morning and i have to give it to him with food but he dont wanna eat at that time to give him the lactulose what should i do.

Asked by: Erica
Erica, I would recommend changing the timing maybe...you can be a bit lenient with every 12 hours. Just twice a day at least and spaced out as well as you can is ideal. You could try doing like an 8am, 8pm sort of schedule. It does not have to be perfect. It is important for the dog to eat when taking the medication, so try to give the medication when the pet will eat. As always, consult with your Vet if you anything serious happens or you have further concern. Hope this helps.

How long is this medicine good for? I've had it since may and my cat is constipated again and wasn't sure if it was still good or not.

Asked by: Amyw
The bottle does have an expiration date on it that should not be exceeded and prescriptions drugs also have a year expiration date placed on their label which is required by law in many jurisdictions. Generally with prescription medication it is important to check with the veterinarian prior to administering them for a condition other then the original condition that the medication was prescribed for. Either way please make certain that the date printed on the bottle is not exceeded. Some medications lose potency or actually become toxic if the date which was used for testing the product by the pharmaceutical company is passed.

is this product comparable to: Generlac Solution 10g/15ml Lactulose Solution (Duphalac) - (mfg.: Morton Grove Pharmaceuticals // distributed by Workhardt, USA, LLC) prescribed by my vet?.. looking to save a little expense

Asked by: watreehugger
Yes, Generlac is the brand, and lactulose is the generic. They both contain the same active ingredient (lactulose) and should be equally effective.

What is Lactulose Solution?

Lactulose is used in cats and dogs as a laxative. Lactulose requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Cats and Dogs

Benefits:

  • Liquid is easy to administer
  • No restrictions on food, drink, or activity unless otherwise directed by the veterinarian.

How it Works:

Lactulose is a disaccharide sugar composed of galactose and fructose. Unlike other sugars, its not absorbed into the blood. It passes unchanged to the large intestine. In the large intestine, lactulose is broken down by bacteria, resulting in the production of various acids. These acids draw water into the colon, softening the stool and increasing the volume, resulting in a laxative effect.

Cautions:

Side effects of lactulose include symptoms of flatulence, bloated stomach, and cramping. Diarrhea and dehydration are symptoms of overdose. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is diabetic, or pregnant or lactating.

Brand Name:

Chronulac or Cephulac (Hoeschst-Marion Roussel), Constulose or Enulose (Alpharma)

Generic Name:

Lactulose (lak-chew-lows)

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving lactulose to my pet:

Tell your veterinarian if your pet is diabetic. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating.

What is the most important information I should know about Lactulose:

Lactulose is a prescription medication that is not FDA approved for use in animals; however, it is a commonly accepted practice for veterinarians to use lactulose in dogs and cats as a laxative. Lactulose is available as a 10 Gm/15ml liquid. The usual laxative dose in dogs and cats is 1 ml per 2 pounds of body weight given every 8 hours initially, then use as needed. Notify the veterinarian if the pet develops excessive diarrhea.

How should this medication be given:

Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Lactulose may be mixed with fruit juice, water, or milk to improve the taste. It may take 24 to 48 hours before the effects of lactulose are seen. Lactulose may darken slightly in color. This change is harmless. However, if lactulose becomes very dark or uneven in consistency do not use the product. Store lactulose at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep this medication away from children and pets.

What happens if I miss giving a dose:

Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if is almost time for the next regularly scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and take the next one as directed. Do not give a double dose of the medication.

What should I avoid while giving Lactulose to my pet:

There are no restrictions on food, drink or activity unless otherwise directed by the veterinarian.

What are the possible side effects of Lactulose:

If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving lactulose and seek emergency veterinary medical attention; an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; swelling of the lips; tongue or face; hives). Other less serious side effects may occur. Continue giving lactulose and talk to your veterinarian if your pet experiences flatulence, abdominal cramps, diarrhea or nausea and vomiting. Other side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to the animal.

What other drugs will affect Lactulose:

Tell your veterinarian if your pet is being given an antacid as this may decrease the effects of lactulose. Drugs other than those listed may also interact with Lactulose. Talk to your veterinarian before giving your pet any prescription or over the counter medicines.

  • Lactulose Solution is a prescription medication used in dogs and cats as a laxative.

Tip:

Lactulose may be mixed with water or milk to improve the taste. It may take 24 to 48 hours before the effects of Lactulose are seen. Notify your veterinarian if your pet develops excessive diarrhea.
