Hello,

Is the blood coming from Dede's stool or urine?
Is he straining or having any trouble pottying?

Is the blood bright red?

Is he eating?

What food?

Thanks,

Terri

Hi Jen,

 

I would not consider one drop of blood to be serious.

As long as Dede is able to urinate this is not a emergency.

 

He may have a parasite like worms or coccidia or giarda.

He may have eaten a non food item.

 

People food is fine for cats as long as they get some canned food as well:

Bring a stool sample to a vet tomorrow.

 

Just keep an eye on him for any developing symptoms and let me know how he is later.

 

It sounds like he should be just fine.

Warmest best wishes,

Terri

KarenJackson Heights, NY

You helped us to come to what we believe is a better next step in Jack's treatment, and hopefully have saved us $800!! Thanks again!

Jack's MomTuscon, AZ

The vet said that the information and my following it will be what made the difference. Thanks again for being so very helpful.

TracyGrayson, LA

My oldest male cat had a seizure this evening. This site was the first place I could think of to go after the seizure had passed. Dr. Lucy was fantastic and she was spot on!

DebbieUSA

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
