I have a 6 month old kitten which i got in September. When I brought him home he was perfectly fine. 2 weeks later he started having diarrhea and even blood in his stool. When I brought him home he had some food left from his previous owner, and I changed it gradually to Royal Canine. The process (the transition) was finished around the time he started having problems. I went to the doctor and he gave me antibiotics and I changed his diet to gastrointestinal food (at that time my other cat was having kind of the same problems). We did tests on their stool. Nothing was wrong. He was ok for a wile. His stool wasn’t constantly good, but mostly it was ok. It was always ,,compact” even though it was soft. 3 weeks later he started having a much softer poop and blood in his stool. This lasted for 3 days. We did an ultrasound and nothing was wrong with him. We did test for viruses. Nothing. They started suspecting that he had inflammatory bowel disease. They changed his food to hippoallergenic, and gave him vitamins and prednicortone. For one week or so he was good. Then he started having severe diarrhea, like never before. We went to the doctor. Again. They gave us antibiotics for 7 more days and something else for diarrhea. Now is the 5th day when his stool looks like colored pee. We started the new treatment yesterday. The thing is he is not getting better. He’s losing weight and even though he, in general, is active and it doesn’t seem to bother him, is not ok. The only way to know for sure if it’s IBD is endoscopy and I’m scared to do it. We don’t even know what is wrong with him. Has anyone experienced anything like this? Any tips please?
