Cat Diarrhea Symptoms, Causes, Precautions and Treatments.

Your cat’s diarrhea is inevitably a source of concern. Most of the time, it’s a normal reaction of the body that will disappear within 48 hours.

Most often, cat diarrhea is foodborne. However, it may have more serious causes. You should be vigilant and do not hesitate to contact your veterinarian if symptoms persist.

 

Causes of diarrhea in cats.

The causes of diarrhea in cats are many. Some are of food origin while others may be of a more or less serious pathology.

Intestinal Parasite.

Your cat’s diarrhea can be caused by the presence of intestinal parasites. Worms are responsible for digestive irritations and even kittens are concerned. These can be contaminated in their mother’s womb or by milk. Parasites irritate the intestine and cause vomiting and diarrhea.



Food Diarrhea.

Your cat is sensitive to changes in diet. The intestines need time to adapt and if the change is too sudden, it can lead to diarrhea. The cat is also a curious and greedy animal. He can ingest small objects that remain stuck in his intestine or swallow spoiled food. Some cats have food intolerances.

The Stress.

Stress is also a disruptive factor in intestinal transit. A change of place, a move, the arrival of a new animal in your home are all situations that can cause anxiety in your cat. This can lead to diarrhea.

 

Pathologies more or less.

Diarrhea can find their causes in more serious pathologies. An inflammatory disease or tumor can irritate your cat’s digestive system. It may also suffer from an infectious gastroenteritis caused by a virus or a bacteria. This disease is fairly common in cats but should not be underestimated. If your cat has undergone antibiotic treatment, it is possible that the intestinal flora is unbalanced.

 

How to cure diarrhea in your cat?

Diarrhea should never be underestimated: You must be vigilant and watch your cat. If you suspect the presence of internal parasites, you must deworm your cat. Deworming should be done monthly for kittens up to six months of age and then two to four times a year for adult cats. As part of an indigestion or more generally a food diarrhea, start putting your cat to the diet.

Diarrhea is a defense mechanism of the body and usually a fasting is enough to restore normal transit. Always leave fresh water available, but remove food for 24 hours. Gradually feed your cat. If diarrhea persists beyond 48 hours, contact your veterinarian. In case of a change of food, make a gradual transition over ten days.

 

What if there is blood in my cat’s stool?

If you observe blood in your cat’s feces, follow the advice above and contact your veterinarian immediately, as this may be a sign of a more serious condition.
