Relieve your cat’s discomfort and promote healthy bowel movements with Maris, a gentle, all-natural herbal supplement that will soothe your pet’s intestines. Constipation occurs when a pet is unable to evacuate his or her bowels. When this occurs, water from fecal matter is absorbed by the colon, leaving a hard mass that is painful to pass.


To be taken twice daily. Determine your pet’s weight and then use the easy chart below to determine the correct dose. This is the minimum dosage.


Pet's Weight Dosage

0 - 15 lb = 0.5 ml

16 - 30 lb = 1.0 ml

31 - 45 lb = 1.5 ml

46 - 60 lb = 2.0 ml

61 - 75 lb = 2.5 ml

Over 75 lb = 3.0 ml

For small animals (rabbits, ferrets), avians and reptiles use 1 drop for every 2 lb of body weight.


How to Administer
Shake well before use. The easiest method is to use the dropper provide and places the drops into your pet’s food or favorite treat. You can also use the dropper and squirt directly into the pet’s mouth.

Some pets can be finicky, if this occurs consider hiding the drops in foods most pet’s love such as fish, chicken or yogurt or a favourite treat. If your pet only eats dry food then soak a few kibbles at feeding time.

For Best Results
Herbal dietary supplements are beneficial to the health and wellbeing of your pet and are safe for long-term use. Every pet responds to natural herbal supplements differently, therefore it is important to be consistent and administer the product daily. Supplements generally take two to four weeks to take effect, however this will vary from one animal to the next.

Chihuly a 12 year old Birman blue point male deals with constipation. I add water in with caned food along with canned pumpkin and Maris NHV and he is doing much better with his daily eliminations. *

My 14 year old grey cat suffered from frequent constipation, and I suspect megacolon. It was painful to watch her strain and defecate large bowel movements every few days. Metamucil, canned pumpkin, restorlax -- nothing worked. I resorted to giving her daily doses of laxatone. Last December 2016 when searching for cancer support products for my other cat, I chanced upon Maris. I am so grateful to have found this product. I truly believe Maris has toned her intestinal muscles, helping her move fecal matter regularly. Definitely will continue buying this product for her. Thank you. *

I am about to order NHV OLD TIMER FOR CATS (for arthritis, muscle and joint pain) for my 15-year-old cat who is suffering from joint stiffness and arthritis. Over the years I have used a number of these NHV herbal remedies for my cats and they have all been wonderful. One of my cats had been diagnosed as showing the beginning signs of what could become CRF (chronic renal failure is an all too common disease and I had seen a pet suffer in the past). I ordered Tripsy for him and the subject never came up again. His kidneys remained healthy. I can highly recommend TRIPSY for use as a daily tonic in warding off CRF (and have recommended it to friends with cats). I have used NHV MARIS with great results - for constipation and general digestive health. I have also used RESP-AID™ FOR CATS and it has afforded relief to one cat for nasal/respiratory/sinus congestion. I also recommend NHV MULTI ESSENTIALS as an excellent general source for daily vitamins and minerals. I think you can mix these formulas with food but my cats do not seem to mind the taste – not at all. I use the dropper and give the drops directly from the bottle. While some of these products may seem expensive, when all is said and done if I can avoid having to use prescription drugs that come with many side effects, and ward off illness, they are well worth the price! *

My cat has inflammatory bowel disease. The usual treatment for this condition is not only harsh with many side effects, but my vet could not guarantee it would even work. The vet knows I use alternative medicine as often as possible. She recommended I find one that works for this condition and I did. I simply add it to her food and she is good to go! *

I wanted to get away from using drugs all the time on so I wanted to try this product. Other than the drooling when I first give it too him , it really helps him calm down and helps him sleep through the night instead of roaming and crying *

Maris is my answer!! My older cat has a condition known as megacolon. I have tried every natural product out there that he would tolerate even putting pumpkin in his food. With this product I just add it to his wet food in the morning (according to his weight) and it has helped tremendously. I'm back for my second bottle. Thanks *
