Customer Question
After many suggested treatments...

After many suggested treatments by his VET for diaharreah (including special foods) in my son's Pixie Bob cats (he breeds them) he has had no success, can you recommend further treatment please ?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the cat's name and age?

There are several of his cats involved but not together, on in particular is a stud cat on is own, he is about 10 yrs old.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the cat's name?

Oscar

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Oscar?

No he seems otherwise a perfectly healthy cat, the only thing is that all the cats involved have access to the garden, obviously not together of course.

I am sorry to hear about the problem your son is having with diarrhea.

It will help to know what has been tried so far; I don't want to recommend anything that has already been tried.

I do not have that information to hand!
Cat Veterinarian: Rebecca, Cat Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

Gosh, I hate to start suggesting things, only to find out these are what has already been done.

Do you know if any tests have been done, especially for the stud cat? Microscopic exam of stool, sending stool out for other tests, blood tests? There are dozens or more things that could be causing this.

As I have already said I do not have the information you require soca not able you to give me any help, please cancel our conversation. Thankyou
Cat Veterinarian: Rebecca, Cat Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

I would be happy to help, and list all the tests and medications and diets that might be helpful, but it possible your son has already tried at least some of them. Thank you for trying to help him and his cats. I will be glad to start listing the things I would do if you like, for you to show him.

I can't cancel the conversation; I am here for your questions.
