Customer Question

My cat won't eat or drink. I had him to a vet today. They ran tests and x-rays. Tests were negative and x-rays show foreign matter in his colon. There is also inflammation in his colon. He was able to pass a stool while at the vets. If he does not eat or drink, what will help him pass what's still inside?

Hi. I’m Dr. Denise, a licensed veterinarian. I’m happy to help with your concerns regarding Tex.

Was he given the diagnosis of constipation today?

Was he given any fluids today? (either IV or subcutaneous-under the skin)

Any prior medical conditions?

Is he taking any medications?
