I am worried about my new kitties. We just took them home from the shelter a little over two weeks ago, and they just had their vet appointment a little over one week ago. I am a little concerned about Spooky, as he keeps squinting one of his eyes. It keeps getting goop building up in it, and we keep wiping it out. All three of our kitties have gas. The vet looked at a stool sample while we were there with them for their rabies shots, and said that she did not see any parasites, but there was a high bacteria count. Friday, Garfield had diarrhea really bad throughout the day, and he was vomiting. We called the vet, who told us to come into the office to pick up some i/d food for them. She said that would clean their tummies of the bacteria, which would help with the diarrhea and the gas. We started them on that on Saturday morning. Garfield still has diarrhea, they are all still gassy, and we just noticed blood in the litter box. We don't know if it was with the stool or urine, or even which cat was bleeding. I am so worried. I am going to call the vet about this in the morning. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas for me? Thanks so much, you are all great!
