Customer Question

I have an 18 year old cat who has bloated intestines. He is on prednisone and has been given a shot of antibiotics 3 days ago. He isn't really improving and loud gurgling noises are coming from his stomach. Is there something else to give him such as power pro biotic, diet or should the antibiotic run its course? He also has arthritis.

How did his vet diagnose the bloat?
Did they say his guts were thickened?
Has he had any vomiting, diarrhea, or appetite loss?
Does he seem uncomfortable with the gas you are hearing?
