Typically involves a course of laxatives to empty out all fecal matter from the colon. The laxative is usually a powder mixed with a clear liquid like water or apple juice. There are also pills that can do the same thing or suppositories. In the worst cases enemas may be required to finish the cleaning out of the colon.

If your cleaned out do you still need to finish the prep

Can cats get bone marrow transplants like humans?

As for medical science I would say yes. Before the first humans had this procedure done, it was tested out on animals. This to learn (and fail) before making the ultimate test on humans.
