Lactulose Solution

If your pet suffers from constipation, Lactulose Solution can give him relief. This prescription medication eases constipation in cats and dogs and can also be beneficial in treating liver disease.

  • Reduces constipation in cats and dogs
  • Helps prevents conditions associated with liver disease 
  • Easy to administer liquid

The sugar in prescription Lactulose Solution has a laxative effect that eases constipation and gastric distress in both dogs and cats. Lactulose Solution works in the large intestine, drawing water in to soften the stool and increase the volume so it’s easier to pass. Lactulose Solution is also helpful in preventing hepatic encephalopathy, a condition associated with cirrhosis of the liver. Cats with megacolon can also benefit from this medication.

  • Talk to your veterinarian before using this product. 
  • Follow dosing directions exactly - don’t give your pet more medication than directed and don’t skip doses. 
  • Read the label carefully for information about storage, possible side effects, and drug interactions.

  • Q:

    what is the different in human solution and dog solution
    Asked on 3/18/2015 by faye

    1 answer

    • A:

      The lactulose product listed on the VetRxDirect web site is the human approved lactulose solution that is commonly prescribed by veterinarians for use in cats and dogs. There are no commercially available veterinary labeled lactulose options therefore the human labeled lactulose is commonly prescribed for pets when needed.

  • Q:

    My dog has Portasystemic shunt, my vet said he will need o stay on Lactulose for the rest of his life, I would like to buy several bottles at one time, how do I get my vet to write a precription for that!
    Asked on 2/3/2015 by RalphM from Martinsburg, WV, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      You can place an order for however many bottles you would like and we will fax your vet for the approval, or they can write a prescription for it but we would only be able to fill however many they write it for. We also can only fill a year's worth of prescriptions also.

  • Q:

    How long does it usually take for the lactulose to take effect on a cat?
    Asked on 11/20/2014 by LenaR from New York, NY, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Lactulose should start to work as a laxative within 24-48 hours. However, lactulose alone may not be enough to overcome megacolon or severe constipation or impaction of the colon. The cat may also need to be on a GI motility stimulant drug such as cisapride along with lactulose. A rectal enema, performed by the veterinarian, may also be required for impacted feces. Follow up with your veterinarian shortly after starting lactulose. Be sure to keep a record of stool frequency and consistency of your cats’ stool after starting lactulose. The dosage and frequency of administration of lactulose is variable and will be adjusted by your veterinarian based on the response in the individual cat.

    My vet wants to charge $20.00 to fax in the prescription. Can I take a picture of the label on the bottle and email to you?
    Asked on 10/27/2014 by Jane1027 from Kentucky, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      No, we cannot accept a copy of a prescription from a customer. The only options are that we will fax a form to your veterinarian and they fax it back to us or you would need to mail in a written prescription to us.

  • Q:

    My cat has been on lactulose for years. She's had small, hard & dry stools since spayed. I'm on pain meds & get lactulose. Hers is the same color/consistency as my lactulose 10 GM/15. Is mine safe to use (on her) @ 5mL/day? I'm disabled-can't afford hers!
    Asked on 8/23/2014 by BrandonP from Iowa

    1 answer

    • A:

      Lactulose is a prescription medication made available for your cat upon proper examination and diagnosis by your veterinarian. Speak to your veterinarian to discuss possible cost saving options to maximize the treatment outcome for your cat.

  • Q:

    I am only interested in the clear, unflavored lactulose... not the orange or green kind or the flavored kind. What type do you stock?
    Asked on 3/23/2014 by AshesMommy from Atlanta, GA, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      While we make every effort to stock the Hi-Tech brand which is an unflavored lactulose, we cannot guarantee a specific brand. Pet owners for whom this is a concern, often call prior to placing their order to see what brand we have in stock at the time.

Because our cat Belle has a chronic condition for several years now, she has to take this with every meal. Buying directly from her vet was just too expensive, as were other online sites. Also, the employees who package and ship it are always great about putting in the treats for a cat and not a dog, as another site was always doing.

This product is a stool softener that treats constipation. My cat with mega colon is on it. It seems to work well, but is sticky and messy. I use it with an oral syringe and I have to decant it into a smaller vessel in order to draw up a dose. If you get it on the pet's fur you have to wipe it up with a moist towel immediately or it causes mats. Also, my cat is a diabetic and was in remission (off insulin and diet controlled) when I started her on it, but her blood sugar started to spike soon after and she has been back on insulin. Product information claims it uses a sugar molecule too large to be absorbed from the intestines, but I don't believe that.

PRODUCT HAS EXTENDED MY CAT'S LIFE AND HIS QUALITY OF LIFE

Cons

  • NONE.

Best Uses

    Comments about Hi-Tech Lactulose Solution, 10g/15mL:

    This medicine was prescribed by my vet for my (now) 17 year old cat who has pancreatitis. Even while on a wet food diet only, he got severely constipated, he was in terrible pain which required trips to the E.R. for enemas and fluids, which were very traumatic for him. Since using Lactulose Solution daily, he has regular BM's and is acting like a 10 year old cat, full of play, purring all of the time, and enjoying an appreciation for his life. This medicine has extended his life and enhanced the quality of life for him. I am extremely appreciative.

        Comments about Hi-Tech Lactulose Solution, 10g/15mL:

        Our cat suffered from constipation so we've used this as a stool softener to the treat constipation. The product works. As a tip our vet gave us a dropper to administer the medicine in his mouth.
        if you have a cat you know how hard that is. The Lactulose has no flavor it's just sticky, so we mix the dose in with his food and he eats it everyday. Also buy online much better deal than vet or local pharmacy.
