    Superb remedy--but definitely not a food

    Tori's review is right on. Would you like something reminiscent of petroleum jelly mixed with your peanut butter sandwich? Tomlyn Laxatone is a wonderful product which really prevents or eliminates hairballs by vomiting or passing them in stool, which makes it a lifesaver as hairballs can cause severe Tori's review is right on. Would you like something reminiscent of petroleum jelly mixed with your peanut butter sandwich? Tomlyn Laxatone is a wonderful product which really prevents or eliminates hairballs by vomiting or passing them in stool, which makes it a lifesaver as hairballs can cause severe problems if left untreated. I have relied on it for over twenty years. Only one of my kitties, however, liked it, a cantankerous old guy who thought it was a delicacy and would gobble it from the tube. I find the easiest way to give it to them is by an oral syringe. Get a 6 ml plastic syringe from your vet. Take it apart and rinse it with water to make it slightly more slippery inside. Place the uncapped tube of Tomlyn Laxatone firmly against the fill end of the syringe barrel (the two openings almost match) and gently squeeze 2-3 ml of it inside. Keep the Laxatone closer to the fill end. As you gently reinsert the plunger, the gel will go to the open end. Try to squeeze it slowly into your cat's mouth, but because it is so viscous, it may all go in at once. This surprises kitty but does not hurt him or her, and the gel is then readily swallowed. With practice, you can learn how to slow the "delivery rate." After trying paws, mouth, nose, and inevitably ending up with a very upset kitty and Laxatone everywhere but in my cat, I find this method to be the most relaxed for them and me. Hope it works for you and yours too and eliminates some of the stress of a very sticky situation. … more

    Cats hate it

    By AnotherRushfan on Apr 1, 2021

    Neither of my cats like this. One cat winced every time I got close to him with it. With the other cat I managed to get some on his paw and right away he flicked some of it off. He did lick some of it off but both paws had residue on them because he didn't want to clean it off. He was mad at me and seemed Neither of my cats like this. One cat winced every time I got close to him with it. With the other cat I managed to get some on his paw and right away he flicked some of it off. He did lick some of it off but both paws had residue on them because he didn't want to clean it off. He was mad at me and seemed to not trust me the rest of the night. We just adopted these two older cats a few months ago and I don't want to ruin the relationship we are building with them. I even tried to mix in some salmon juice from their Sheba wet food but they still avoided it. I even bought the Hartz hairball treatment Salmon flavor from the store and they don't like that one either. These cats only like fish flavors of food but they didn't like either of these hairball treatments. These hairball treatments are thick and gooey and smell gross. After reading a bunch of reviews I see that cats either love it or hate it. I am going to give them a little bit of olive oil in their food for a few days to see if that helps instead. Oh well, I tried. … more
