My approx. 10 yr old neutered male cat has been showing
My approx. 10 yr old neutered male cat has been showing strange symptoms over time. It began years ago with him gnawing on plastic bags. We do our best to keep them away but somehow he locates a plastic bag (whether they be shopping, zoological, or just plain plastic wrapping - he chews). Over the years, his belly has grown quite a bit and seems to be sensitive to the slightest touch in some areas. He's so round now, he has some areas hrs unable to scratch or clean but it's not always just those spots that seem to be sensitive. Over the past year or so, I've seen an increase in vomiting at random with him. There are times that he gets up from his nap and just Gaga until it comes up. It's always at least partially digested when I've seen it. Since his diet consists of primarily dry food, I started introducing canned food in addition keeping the dry stuff out to munch on in between. The nausea has subsided, but before this change and to present, he started having blood in his stool. Sometimes it would be in streaks of mucus that was on the hard stool, now I've noticed he's also been passing long, thick (almost worm-like in length and girth), along with spots and streaks of bright red blood. I'm desperate for advice. I lost my job last year and I'm trying to get some ideas as to what his symptoms could mean and a beat-guess estimate on the costs for testing and treatment. He's my best friend. Other than the symptoms mentioned, he's a happy, sweet, loving cat. Please advise. I sincerely ***** ***** help given. Thank you. … read more
