- Hi - With the medication that I take for pain, it causes me constipation. My sister recommended that I buy some Senna leaves and make some tea. I did, and it helped me. I think I drank too much and it did cause some abdominal pain. So least is best. Anyway -- In reading The Encyclopedia of Natural Pet Care by CJ Poutinen, I learned that you can use Senna leaf for your cats as well. The instructions in the book say to add a small pinch of powdered senna leaf. Since I have the leaf instead of powder, I made a weak tea and gave Gus 1 ml of it. He liked the taste and was able to do his business as well the very same day. I just would not use this method continuously over several days. If it does not work -- I would try something else. I have used it occassionally for Gus and it has worked every time.
