Actually, I was told to give my cat one tablespoon of mineral oil a day by my vet. Why would a vet tell you to give a cat mineral oil if it's not good for it?

I have tried giving my cat the hairball remedy stuff to no avail. So far the mineral oil isn't helping so I may try the pumpkin next. I've tried giving her the olive oil and she doesn't like it.

I do have a question. Since my cat is constipated, how will fiber help other than bulking up her stool? I checked her stool this morning and it was a little stiff. If it's stiff won't the fiber just bulk it up more? I think she needs something to soften her stool or will the fiber do that too?

Thanks
