Kitten pooping blood

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a bottle baby kitten who is about 4-5 weeks old, and when I first got him him and his sister was pooping blood, and I asked the vet and the vet gave me antibiotics and a dewormer. Well now he just started having runny poop with blood at the very end of it. I don't know if he just needs dewormed again, or what, any information would be very helpful. Thanks!

Is it an option to contact this vet again? It is his patient so it should be possible...

Good luck!

contact the vet ... likely it is just a bit of worms or constipation , both easy enough to fix... most kittens need spaced worming s and usually 3

Ok so I took him to the vet and he just gave him another dewormer! Because of them being little they have to get the "crappy" wormer I guess and it can take up to 2-3 times to fully get rid of them, he is eating better since his dose today, but still after he poops there it a little spot of red blood, I dunno if its from straining or what.. Have any of you guys ever dealt with a little red blood in the stool when they had worms? It looks like there are some worms in his poop now the last time he had a bowl movement and it was 3 hours after he had his dewormer. Hopefully this helps him!!!

It's extremely common for kittens to have to be de-wormed a few weeks apart due to the life cycle of the worms. It has nothing to do with the strength of the medication. My guy had to be de-wormed three times plus treated for tapeworms, which is not taken care of by the regular de-worming med. I'm sorry I can't help you with the blood, though, as I've never experienced that.
