Question by manx_max: Cat constipation?
My 16 yr old part manx:
Day 1: My cat is in terrible pain for 6 hours
Day 2: He threw up and stopped eating soft food; pain gone
Day 3: Vet prescribed pain meds and antibiotics, but cat threw up and only ate a little kibble. This is the last time he pooped on his own.
Day 4: He had trouble eating kibble and shrimp; almost as if he had peanut butter stuck in his mouth
Day 5: He stopped eating and we took him back to vet, where he stayed overnight.
Day 6: Ultrasound, mouth inspection, and various tests found constipation, so they treated that. He did not eat.
Day 7: He eats soft food off my finger. He can’t seem to bite it . He can only lick it. He couldn’t even eat small pieces of shrimp.
Day 8: It seems like he’s learning to eat by licking. His eating is picking up (~3/4 can), but his stomach is sensitive.
Day 9: After two days of light eating, he still has not pooped. Is that normal in this case?
I’ve posted about this after day 1 and 6. You’ve been so helpful.
