Is your kitty having any diarrhea? vomiting?

 

Has this kitten seen a vet yet?

 

Was she a stray?

 

How is her appetite?

 

Let me know and i will try to help...

Hello,

 

Our kitten's blood spots are in her feces, and she has had light diarrhea. She received her first vaccinations last week by a vet at a pet store, but has not seen any other vet. She came from the litter of a friends cat. Her appetite is good. Thanks for any assistance you can give.

Cat Vet: ERAnimalNurse, Emergency Critical Care Nurse replied 8 years ago
Thank you for the additional information. Soft stool and blood is most commonly indicative of intestinal parasites. Your kitty will need to have her feces checked, and will likely need a dewormer and maybe even an antibiotic. Some parasites are harder to find than others, so even if the fecal panel comes up negative a dewormer should be prescribed. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance. If this has been helpful, please hit the green accept button. Best of luck with your kitty :)

The response from the Expert literally saved my cat's life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart -- I will recommend all of my friends to you!!!

LuciaRincon, Georgia

I will use your service again. I was very pleased with the response and the fact that you have a low cost option so that those of us on fixed income can have questions answered. I will also recommend you to others.

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.
