|If you can, I would only feed him wet food, mixed with water, so its real soupy, twice a day. I feed Blue Wilderness, its grain free, gluten free, by product free and soy free. Its the only quality grain free food, that he would eat, he also, will not, at all, eat any food, period. He is beyond pickey, but he loves his Blue Wilderness, and his baby food.
Prowler had a constipation issue one time. My vet said to give him 1/4 teaspoon Metimucil, once a day, mixed with his wet food. It has to be sugar free and unflavored, has to be. Seems like he only had to have it for a few days, might have been a week, and he was normal again. I also give Petromalt, once about every 2 weeks, mostly for occasional hairballs, but it keeps things running smooth in the other department too.
A very very lot of years ago, one of my cats swallowed a string, this was how I learned, not to let them play with strings, and it was coming out the back end. Called my vet, he said do not pull it, just dose him heavy with the Petromalt, until he passes it, which he did.
I have seen some mention, something about pumpkin, not the pumpkin pie stuff, but pumpkin, that they use for constipation. They can tell you more about it.
The others can also give you great information. Best of luck.
