MY 18 year old male cat (Ashes) has blood in his stool and I suspect in his yearn. His last Visit to Vet was a month ago (he had his teeth pulled), I told her about the problem, they said he was in very good condition with the exception that his Thyroid was off, but she didn't advise to put him on drugs right away. .... his bowel movements are very loose almost to the point of water at times, seldom is it a formed stool. IT seems as if as soon as he eats he is voiding what he ate. He has lost weight over the last 2 years he seems to maintaining his weight now as long as I feed him when he is hungry. He is constantly licking at his anus (I presume that is cuz he is passing blood) Are all of these symptoms from the thyroid dysfunctioning or could he be in renal failure. There are times he shows he is in discomfort when walking. Other than that he has no visible lumps on his outer body. His temperament has not changed ( he is very lovable and seeks attention..he has always done this) Can you help with any suggestions, I don't have the money to do extensive blood tests....But will be glad to put him on Thyroid meds if it isn't going to break me.....As I said he is 18 years old, I don't want to prolong his life if it means he is dealing with pain on a daily basis.
