Cat Lax for Hairballs in Cats

Cat Lax is used for the prevention and elimination of hairballs in cats. It can be used to improve digestion and elimination and may reduce the frequency of vomiting after eating. Cat Lax is generally well-tolerated. Talk with your cat's veterinarian regarding side effects or adverse reactions.

Cat Lax can be placed on the paw for fussy cats to help them to become accustomed to the pleasant taste. For hairball removal in average weight cats, Cat Lax should be administered once per day. For prevention of hairballs, Cat Lax can be used two to three times per week. A one-inch amount squeezed from the tube is the usual amount needed. Smaller cats may require less. Talk to your cat's veterinarian for specific instruction of how to use Cat Lax.

Cat Lax Contains:

  • Cod liver oil
  • caramel
  • lecithin
  • malt syrup
  • white petrolatum
  • 0.1% sodium benzoate (preservative)
  • vitamin E (dl-alpha tocopheryl acetate equivalent to 0.033 mg/g d-alpha tocopherol) (antioxidant)
  • purified water

Keep out of reach of children.

Store at room temperature.

  • Q:

    Is this product good for 3week old constipated kitten?
    Asked on 10/12/2014 by Diva1951 from New Orleans, La.

    1 answer

    • A:

      Cat LaxⓇ is indicated for the elimination and prevention of hairballs in cats and the dosing for this indication has been established for average-weight adult cats. The dosing and use of Cat LaxⓇ for constipation in kittens has not been established. You should speak with your pet’s veterinarian about other medication and dietary options for constipation in kittens. For example, some veterinarians prefer to use Miralax for constipation in kittens, but the use and dose of this medication or any other medication will need to be determined by your pet’s veterinarian based on your pet’s diagnosis.

      Thank you,

  • Q:

    CAN CAT LAX MAKE MY CAT SICK VOMITING JUST WATER? THANK YOU
    Asked on 2/10/2014 by BUDDY

    1 answer

    • A:

      Buddy,

      The manufacturer only lists diarrhea as a reported side effect. The company does warn to not force feed the Cat Lax as aspiration of the product into the lungs can cause serious damage. If your cat is continuing to vomit, we recommend discontinuing the product and contacting your veterinarian.

      Thank you,

  • Q:

    cat appears to be constipated how long till cat lax takes effect
    Asked on 9/25/2013 by bob

    1 answer

    • A:

      Bob,

      Lubricant laxatives such as Cat Lax work by lubricating the feces for easier removal and less straining. Normally, they should begin to work in 6 to 8 hours and result in a bowel movement anytime following this period. If the cat remains constipated for a period of time, and the Cat Lax does not seem to work, contact your pet's veterinarian right away.

      Thank you,

      VetRxDirect

Cat Loves It!

Comments about Dechra Cat Lax:

I have only had this product for a couple of weeks, but my cat luvs it. He luvs the stuff so much it's almost annoying because he let's you know he hasn't had it for the day. The only reason I didn't give the product a 5 start is because I really haven't had it long enough to see if it actually helps his hairball issue.

Finally! Kitties like this one!

Comments about Dechra Cat Lax:

My little kitty is an over-groomer (don't worry, she's been thoroughly checked by her vet many times; there are no underlying health issues) and fighting hairballs is a constant problem. Well, cleaning up the up-chucked hairballs is the real issue. After trying many, many brands, flavors, textures, she finally decided this is the one she likes and is more than willing to lick it off my finger. My other kitty, a long hair foundling, will eat anything, but even he was picky about hairball "goop." Fortunately, he likes this brand as well.
I was especially pleased to find this product at a much lower cost than at my vet's. I can buy more tubes at a time so I don't worry about running out. I also like that when I do loose my mind and forget to order, processing and shipping is so quick that even when I'm done to one tube, I know VetRxDirect will have me resupplied in plenty of time.

I couldn't get Lax'aire, so I finally tried Cat Lax. I am very pleased with it and my cat loves it, besides it wasn't as expensive as the other one. It came in 3 days, despite the holidays.

Comments about Dechra Cat Lax:

I have been using "Catlax" for a few years now. My Vet switched to an inferior brand. I recently purchased it from VetRX. Its even cheaper and still the fine nutritious product that has helped my Cat not have hairball issues. He loves the taste!
