Can my Pepper be on Colace long term?
I know that cats can be on miralax long term, but I don't know about colase. You may need to check with the vet.
I did. They said they didn't know.
Here’s some info on colace use in humans
Seems they say not to use it long term because the body will become dependant on it. If it’s the only thing that works for him though, you may need to. Have you asked your vet about cisapride? I haven’t used it, but it was the next step for my civie if the lactalose didn’t work (it did, thankfully)
Miralax is safe to use every day. It works differently than Colace, (not a laxative or stimulant) using the body’s own water to soften stool. Start out with an eighth of a tsp. and increase a little until you see results. Takes a couple of days to kick in. If stool gets too soft, reduce the amount. It is totally odorless and tasteless. Works great.
I use Miralax on Dusty every day, going on 4 years already.
