Our 2,5 year old persian had diarrhea vomiting lethargy bloody stool. We took to the vets 3 consecutive days, the last 2 visit he got ivs to combat dehydration. Bloodwork fine , xrays fine (lots of gas) ultrasound showed irritation in stomache and colon.blood work is normal, temp. normal over past few months his white count was low. Stool samples showed no parasites but feline corona virus and clostridium.He's home tonight again and lethargic still not eating and drinking little water, any help would be appreciated since Adrian like all kitties is special to us. Thanks
I will also include another link to a site with limited info, I do hope your research can lead to something.
I will ask what is Adrian's diet?
could this be a dietary intolerance b/c you did mention..alot of gas which makes me suspect. is he on a good brand of canned food with NO GRAIN? since grains are often the culprits in many dietary allergies. It may help to try changing the brand of food you are feeding....
here are a couple links, please post again if we can help or to update us...we are hoping a resolution can soon be found♥
He is at a 24 hour care facility till tomorrow, he was on amoxicillin but was not working so they switched to clindamycine. They ruled out fip from the blood tests and are treating for clostridium infection (probably from our other kitty who had diarrhea 2 weeks ago and was treated with metronidazol . We are hoping for the best and glad its not fip.We appreciate your site and quick responce,I hope to soon post here that Adrian is happy and healthy.
hi again, great news that its not FIP. I am sending info to you on the med that was being used and info on the clindamycine being used now.
I certainly hope this gets to the root of little Adrian's problems and he is soon back home with you and well.
thankyou for the update and yes please do update us often. We are happy to have you and your kitty family join us, we are all very loving cat owners here who love to share information and also cat chatter...good luck♥
