Health Questions & Answers



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.

Dear Barbara,

I would try Promaxol to reduce the pain and help healing to begin. Promaxol would be a good choice because it contains the stronger LM potencies. After improvement is seen then you can switch over to Arthro-IonX. In addition it is helpful to give Probiotics with each meal and Omega 3,6,9 daily. The oligotherapeutic mineral base found in the IONX products helps the body to better utilize the other nutritional substances given for a synergistic response and faster healing. Also be sure to give sufficient fresh water that is free of chlorine and fluoride. If you can gradually phase into a grain free diet that can be helpful too. I would try fish or turkey as the protein source. Hopefully the bleeding will decrease because of the homeopathic remedies and from having a gentler diet. I hope your cat will eat canned food. That would be better at his advanced age and having had dental issues.

Please let us know how you progress or if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,
