    Maki seems to be having very hard, pellet-like stools? I have noted several folks have Miralax listed in their signatures. Does insulin cause constipation? Should I start adding Miralax to Maki's food ASAP?

    Not necessarily from insulin, but a lot of kitties have comorbidities like chronic kidney disease (CKD) which can cause some constipation. If Maki is constipated for more than a few days, you may want to have him seen by your vet to make sure he does not to be "unstuck," and get dosing for Miralax, or a different laxative.

    Hope Maki keeps surfing safely! :bighug:

    If you ever have time for some light reading, here is the website to learn everything you ever wanted to know about feline constipation. It is quite amazing: https://felineconstipation.org/

    Thank you, both. I shall read all about it. Can't imagine the fun I am in for with miralax and the Kitty. She is still pooping just hard pellets which is not like her. She is drinking significantly less than prior to dx.

    I add extra water to butters’s food to make sure she stays hydrated. She is not a water drinker at all but is fine with eating soupy food!

    Add this comment to the list of things I'd never thought I'd see and go "oh yeah let me put that in a browser tab and read when I have time" :D

    It’s a really good site written by a very smart woman I know from yahoo groups.
