Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
This is Dr. KV. I'm here to help with Tender heart. It sounds like he is not feeling well. Can you tell me a bit more.....does he go outside? Is he vaccinated?
Ok, great, thank you for the additional information. So, he is pooping blood? Nothing solid? Has he gotten into anything you are aware of?
And none of your other cats have any of the same symptoms?
Ok, thank you for the additional information. The consistency of his stool that you describe does not sound good at all. It can be very dehydrating for a cat to have bloody diarrhea. He could have a parasite or bacterial infection causing this, which could be found by doing a fecal test with your vet. Or, he may be having an adverse food reaction. At such a young age, it is ideal to start with fecal testing and diarrhea medication. Then, if he is still not feeling well, a different diet or a hypoallergenic diet would be a good idea.
Can I help you with any other questions tonight?
Feel free to reach out if I can assist you further.
Good luck with Tender heart.
