General information on Colitis
Colitis is an inflammation of the colon. Although, there is generally no noticeable reason for the inflammation, parasites, stress, and bacteria may be some of the causes.
Symptoms of Colitis
Cats with Colitis usually look normal. Some of the symptoms may include blood or mucous in the feces. Because of the inflammation in the colon, some cats may have pain when defecating. When this happens, the cat may try to stop the process and constipation may result. Other signs, especially in more sever cases, may include diarrhea and vomiting.
Treatments for Colitis
A visit to the vet is in order if you suspect Colitis. He may perform a rectal exam to confirm Colitis. Antibiotics and a bland diet may be prescribed. In some cats, your vet may initiate the use of steroids, such as prednisone.
