Re: stool softener?
- My cat, Precious, takes 6.25 mg of Atenolol each day. Since starting
the medicine, she no longer has a runny eye (from allergies).....I
noticed this and the vet said that the medicine could cause
some "drying out", sort of like an antihistamine (sp?). It stands to
reason that maybe the stool would be effected also, or at least the
amount of water content in the stool. In Precious's case, this is a
good side effect, since she has no drainage from her eye now.
I am just guessing about this and drawing on my own experience.
Precious is a longhair so I give her a dose of laxatone every couple
of days. This has really cut down on hairballs and keeps her from
being constipated. My vet said that it is safe to use.
