Can this be given to a dog who vomits hairballs regularly?
Answer by MeowMeowNov 27, 2022
No, this is for cats only.

Would this work as a laxative to help soften my kitty's bowels.
Answer by ChewyJan 30, 2018
Cat Lax is a palatable formula for the elimination and prevention of hair balls in cats. Petroleum-based laxatives coat the swallowed hair and allow it to pass through the digestive system of cats and other pets.

What are the ingredients for this product? They are not listed above & would be helpful if they were printed along with directions on dose level per cat.

Best cat Laxative

Our older cat isn't as active as he should be and gets constipated. He also has a really hard time passing or coughing up furballs. This is the best laxative/furball help I've found. It has Cod liver oil too which helps his health and he really likes it. I put a strip on my finger and he licks it off. Just wash hands good afterwards. I tried laxa-stat which he also ate just fine but I notice he hasn't used the box today. Hopefully later. It's a much thicker consistency than the Cat Lax is. It was out of stock so I tried the Laxa Stat. I'm buying the Cat Lax now that it's back in stock but if there were no other choice I guess the Laxa stat will work. Glad Cat Lax is back for our older Sr. Cat.

Best Hairball Remedy Ever

Over the 50 plus years I have had cats, I have tried many different cat hairball medications, in several different flavors. Cat Lax by Dechra is the best I have found. Besides the fact that it works, it is thicker than any of the others I have tried, making it far less messy and easier to administer to a resistant feline that would much rather hack up a hairball on the carpet than have some molasses-like substance scraped off on the roof of its mouth. Hint - If you offer a small amount of this to your kitten as a special treat before it is actually needed, by letting the kitten smell and lick a little bit off your finger, there is a pretty good chance your kitty will willingly consume this later on when it does become necessary.

Chewy rocks!

This particular product has been unavailable for quite some time and my cat desperately needs it. I rejoiced when chewy informed me that it was back in stock. Chewy is always so good about letting me know when Stevie's supplies are available again. I'm very grateful for their fast shipping and excellent customer service. Chewy rocks!

Superior product for relieving serious hairballs

Suffice it to say I'm with the multiple cat parents who are in desperate need of Cat lax. No one at Chewy's seems to know what's going on. I called the company myself because that's what I do,I call companies, and asked for an update. They said it will be after the first of the year, in January most likely. What I don't understand is if Chewy's doesn't know when it will be back in stock... then how do they know to raise the price from 5.99 to 8.99 already? Hmmm....

for anyone else who’s been wondering….

I’ve used this product for my zucchini who gets hair balls often, it’s helped tremendously. Although, from what I’m seeing after not being able to purchase it for months I’m finding it’s been discontinued. To those of you in a similar position- definitely look for an alternative, this one isn’t coming back :(

Great product

Cat loves the taste (hates everything else) and cuts down on hairballs. Also seems to help him recover after bout of vomiting. Glad it's back in stock!

When will it be back in stock??!?

My cat, Mouse, has mega colon, & Cat Lax is a very important part of our arsenal to help her poop her giant sized stools. However, Chewy has been out of it for quite a while. Has it been discontinued? What's up with it? Can you please let us pet parents, who depend on it for our cats, know some news of its return or replacement?! Thx!
