Feline Constipation with Dr. Ashlie Saffire, DABVP | VETgirl Veterinary Continuing Education Podcasts

Feline constipation is a common issue in veterinary medicine, with various causes such as dietary factors, structural issues, chronic pain, medications, and diseases like diabetes or chronic kidney disease. Old age, obesity, chronic kidney disease, and history of constipation are common risk factors for feline constipation. Thorough history-taking and examination including lab work and x-rays are essential in diagnosing and treating feline constipation. Hydration and water balance play a crucial role in managing feline constipation before considering a diagnosis of mega colon. Mega colon is characterized by persistent increased colonic diameter, hypo motility, and poor response to medical management. Hydration and water balance are crucial in managing chronic constipation in cats, especially those with comorbidities like chronic kidney disease or diabetes. Diagnosing mega colon involves a combination of evidence factors such as radiographic measurements of the colon's size relative to vertebral bodies. Early treatment of chronic constipation is essential to prevent severe complications like megacolon in cats. Treatment for constipation in cats varies depending on the underlying cause, ranging from stool softeners to dietary changes and sub-q fluids. Newer cat-friendly techniques like adding water dishes around the house can help increase hydration. Fountains versus dishes for water intake is more of a cat preference. Adding cooked zucchini to cat food can aid in hydration. Prevention and monitoring fecal scores are crucial in managing feline constipation. Miralax and pain control are options for treating constipation in cats with financial limitations. Nutrition plays a role in managing feline constipation, especially for chronic cases. Educating owners on slow nutritional implementation is important to avoid food aversion. There are various diets available with higher fiber components for cats, such as the Royal Canin Fiber response. These diets are formulated with a moderate amount of fiber, are highly digestible, and safe to feed long-term. A new canned version of the Royal Canin Fiber response diet is now available. There is also a gastrointestinal fiber kitten diet suitable for young kittens with diarrhea. Switching cats to a fiber response diet has led to some cases where cats no longer need medications within a few weeks. Caution is advised when considering giving enemas at home to cats due to potential risks and complications.
