We have a 1 year and 3 months old female cat. She's been having diarrhea for a month. She as fine for the first few days after we brought her home. Then started to have soft stool and than wattery stool. The stool has mucus and bright red blood at the end. She was straining when using the litter box. The frequency of using the litter box increases from 1 time a day to 5 times a day, but the amount each time is only a little. We took her to different vets several times and did fecal and blood tests, nothing was found. She's been treated with drontal, flagyl and panacur. Non of it stop the diarrhea and still has blood at the end. However the mucus is gone. During these treatment, we only fed her boiled chicken and rice (all mashed) and hope this can smooth her stomach. Even she is stlil active, playful and has good appetite. We tried to feed her smaller amount of food but 4 times a day. She seems to lose almost a pound, but vet told us it's because of the diarrhea and we fed her less. Vet recently gave us sulfasalazine to stop diarrhea and hopfully it can restore her condition back. The stool went from very wattery to soft now but it still has bright red blood at the end. We also noticed the stool color becomes light green. We don't know if this is somthing to do with the medication or something else. We also notice that she will raise her but when peeing. Please help us, any sugguestion will be welcome.
