Can your cat lick the laxaire product off your finger?
Answer by ChewyJan 26, 2021
Lax’aire has been formulated with high taste appeal. Place a small amount on your pet’s nose or on your cat’s paw to stimulate initial taste interest. For Cats, give 0.5 - 1.5 inch ribbon of ointment daily for 2 to 3 days, then 0.5 - 1.0 inch ribbon 2–3 times a week. For Dogs, give 0.5 to 2 inch ribbon 2 to 3 times weekly.

Should this bottle come sealed? It wasn’t….
Answer by ChewyJan 13, 2022
This tube is not made with a seal under the cap.

Can it be used for diarrhea also
Answer by ChewyMar 19, 2023
This palatable ointment can be used as a gentle laxative when your pet needs a little extra help and it can also be used to help relieve discomfort and irritation caused by hairballs.

Disappointment for Juicy's Digestive Woes

Well, I gave Lax-Aire a shot for my cat Juicy's digestive issues, teaming it up with the Hills GI biome diet. Unfortunately, it didn't work out as planned. Juicy's still having bouts of vomiting, and that's definitely not the outcome I was hoping for. Gotta give it a one-star rating because it didn't live up to the expectations. If your kitty's dealing with digestive problems, I'd suggest exploring some other options.

Help for my ole ladies

KaTi and Toni are ten year old cats who have started having digestive issues in the past year. Toni with hair balls, KaTi with hard stools. They are picky and hard to treat but they both love their Lax Aire and will remind me when their doses are due! KaTi’s stools have softened so she’s not struggling in the litter box or leaving nuggets. Toni hasn’t vomited since starting Lax Aire!! Wins all around!

Very delicious! Somewhat effective?

My cat LOVES this stuff to the point that he begs for it. He's elderly and has been pooping outside his box, which I read could be a sign of constipation, so I've been giving it to him to loosen things up and making pooping more comfortable. He has not pooped outside the box since he started taking it (about 2 weeks ago), so it may be working, but I don't think his stool necessarily looks "better" (still small dry pellets). But as long as he's using his box, I'm happy.

Made my one dog SICK and the others hate the taste

I had been giving my dog laxatone periodically because she picks up hair and gets hairballs. Decided to give this a try and bought three tubes. My one dog got sick from it. My other dogs tolerated it but are not a fan of the taste. Will switch back to the Laxatone. I wish I had not bought three tubes!

Difficult Case

Well, I think it may have helped, but I can't say for certain. My little one has severe constipation issues due to other health conditions so it's hard to tell. I can say that this product in combination with subQ fluids and Miralax did produce a poo I was tempted to write home about. Can't say of she liked the flavor or not because I squeezed some into a syringe and squirted it in her mouth.

Seems promising

I like the ingredients, she seems to not mind the taste and it's loose enough to just put a little into her mouth from the tube. It hasn't been long, but I do think there is improvement in her gagging from hair balls...she's an extreme groomer.

Used for a While

To sure how well it actually works, since this is one finicky cat. Some times he takes it and some times he refuses.

I use this for my cat Bo he eats more dry kibble than wet food, he does eat boiled chicken with some moisture! I supplement the Lax-Aire to help with his bowel movements! I give him a couple of blobs on my finger every other day and it does seem to help him not to strain to do his business, also he really likes the flavor so that is a plus for my Bo!!!

Works Great!

I have two cats, one 10 Jason, and one 11 Kevin. They tended to have frequent hairballs in the past. Kevin, the older cat recently developed a food allergy and was actually losing weight despite all he ate. X-rays showed his intestinal walls were thickening. He is now on a prescription food diet only. Lax Aire has almost eliminated, their hairball problem. Most importantly, it now allows Kevin to have daily stools and has eliminated his intestinal issues as well in a very gentle way. Some days they like it and some days they don't but I give it to them almost daily per my vets advice. On the days they don't like it, I simply place it on their tongue with my finger or put it in their food. It should be refrigerated for easy application when putting it on the finger for them to lick. It has a lot less ingredients than some of the other cat/dog laxatives out there and it seems to have a delicious caramel smell.
