Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? How long has she had blood in her stool? Is this her first heat cycle?
Okay thanks for the additional information. Does she spend any time outdoors? Usually if there is fresh blood in the stool it typically indicates some inflammation of the colon. That can be due to stress, intestinal parasites, or if she ate anything unusual. It usually is not due to her being in heat. If she only had this one time and you haven't seen it again then she may have just been stressed at the time. I would monitor her closely to make sure it does not continue. If it does I would recommend getting a fecal sample from her to get her tested.
Do you have any further questions?
