Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Taste This is the first hairball medicine that Mia would lick off my finger. The kind I used to buy I had to smear on her fur so she would lick it off. I bought the maple flavor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from She loves the Tuna flavor! Brought it for Cleopatra because she coughs a lot, no vomiting but I believe it was hairballs. I now give it to her every 3 days and no coughing any more.

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.

Is it safe to ship Laxatone in the mail to a hot environment?

Asked by: kc
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.
