Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
1) When did the bloody stool start? 2) Is Hoolies still eating and drinking well? 3) Any vomiting or diarrhea? 4) Any changes in diet?
Anytime we see blood in the stool, it's wise to have a veterinary visit. Antibiotics are often indicated for treatment. That said, I can give you some steps to take at home which may help resolve the bloody stool.You can add a tsp of pure canned pumpkin to Hoolie's diet 1-2 times daily. The additional fiber should help firm the loose stool and clear the blood.Alternately, you can also switch to a bland diet. To make this, you’ll combine white or brown rice, boneless, skinless chicken breast and sufficient water for cooking in a stock pot. Boil on medium until it turns to mush and the breast is easily flaked. Blend with water to form a slurry he can drink. If your companion requires a more palatable food, try adding in pureed baby food in chicken, turkey and similar flavors. Avoid those that contain onion or garlic in the ingredient panel. Work up to feeding exclusively until at least 3 days following the resolution of the GI upset. After this, work on slowly switching back to the regular food that your companion typically eats.
