Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, this is Dr.Jess. I am sorry to hear about your kitty! Is he doing poorly at home? Did you have a specific question about the disease,or is your question about his stool?
So it has changed recently in color? Many different things can affect a pet's color of stool. Medications may change the color, changes in diet, different treats can sometimes change the color of the stool. Stools can become dark almost black in color due to bleeding in the intestinal tract, or can become more pale than previously if there is an issue with the liver or gall bladder. It sounds like his stool is brown in color (mud colored?) which is considered normal. Did it look different before?
