is Irritable Bowel Disorder. It's an immune disorder which gives inflammation in their stomach/bowel. What they eat either gets diarreha or thrown up. Several times a day. Hard to manage. Or...it could be cancer, but the only way we'd know that is by biopsy. Not going to do that. Can't change anything anyway. |
So, I try buying all sorts of food, testing if any help. He does WANT to eat, so it's not like he isnt eating, just that he isn't getting the benefit of what he does cause it comes out and goes through him quickly. Sometimes very watery diarreha.
I try any food I can. Even deli meat, meat baby food, cooked chicken, grilled cheese sandwiches (which worked for a little while). I also buy baby cat food by Royal Canin, in cans and also their canned food for sensitive stomachs. Also try Critical Nutrition from the vet office in cans. I open a can of that a day and give him that too. He also gets FortiFlora (good bacteria in powder form in a packet) every day in his food or Benebec which is another version of that. Some days I'm lucky and the poo is almost normal, other days he goes back to the watery stuff.
He's losing weight, I'm thinking this is not good. I'm taking him in again on Wednesday, not that that will really change anything. We tried everything the last time the vet said. But at least he can see him. He lost a lot of weight since last time. So say some prayers we can do something to get him through this.
Red will be 15 in August, so he's reallyl not that old.
