What is Megacolon?
Unrelieved constipation can make your cat extremely uncomfortable, and may even require surgery. Hereís what you should know about this condition.
Obviously, itís very distressing to a cat owner if she witnesses the plight of an otherwise healthy animal having difficulty moving her bowels.

If her efforts pay off at all, she may eventually pass a small, hard, dark-colored fecal mass into her litter box.Ö
