Constipated kitty? Offer veterinary clients this handout
Print this PDF handout to give pet owners with stopped-up feline patients a starting salvo to set expectations and offer some basic advice.
People have “toilet” trouble now and then, so it likely wouldn't phase veterinary clients to see their cat showing signs of constipation. But even though this condition typically is not a serious one, it can signal serious health problems that need to be addressed. With the help of Margie Scherk, DVM, DABVP (feline practice), we've created a handout that provides pet owners with nuggets of constipation know-how, from what causes it to how it is diagnosed and treated.
