blood on the floor

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
We noticed some blood near the litterbox recently, and later found that one of our 2 cats had blood on top of his feces. He's 10 months old, and seems to produce a quantity of blood when he poo's. He doesn't seem affected by it, though, as he still runs, jumps, plays, eats, purrs, etc. He was tested 2 months ago for worms, but all was ok at that time. I'm going to make an appointment with the vet later today, but wonder if anyone has ideas of what this could be. Thanks.

I'm sure you will get plenty of responses to this post, because your cat is in critical condition. Call the vet immediately, and get this cat in! If your regular vet is not available, call another vet. Do not delay in calling, no animal should be losing blood!

I would get him into your vet ASAP. Daily blood lose and finding it on the floor is not good. It could be manythings and all I would be doing is guessing. Its best to get to your vets and find out just what is going on. And treat it.

He may very well have some sort of internal parasite like coccidia: http://www.marvistavet.com/html/coccidia.html or giardia: http://www.merckvetmanual.com/mvm/in...m/bc/21100.htm

Does he also have diarrhea? He obviously needs veterinary care ASAP if he is bleeding from the rectum.

if your cat is otherwise acting alright and seems healthy in all other respects there is no reason to panic.
