1 yr old bengal with tummy upset.

by melony

i have a one yr old bengal i just got on sat. i think he has something really wrong with him. he is leaking poop all the time. it is really making me worry. not to mention he leaking it all over the house. he does play and have fun and is very sweet. i believe this is a prexisting conition that the breeder did not notice. as he was in a cattery. please help. i am taking him to the vet and i am asking the breeder to reimburse me if it is a prexisting problem. i am just so worried. i also have 2 other bengals. just wanted to see what you thought it might be. i noticed it as soon as i got him and thought it might be stress. but i dont think it is anymore. i did call the breeder and tell her as soon as i noticed it. she said she had never noticed it. i belive her to be a good breeder. i have gotten another kitten from her and he is fine. but this is very concerning. ny the way he is a melanistic bengal

thanks-very worried mommy

well it could be stress or a change in the food that they were receiving. A change like moving home can be a cause for diarrhoea ate and can take for a little while to settle down.

you are doing the right thing and checking with the vet though as you do want to make sure that this is not a symptom of a health condition. However i would not worry too much at this stage, take her to the vets and perhaps feed her a very basic diet to see if it helps her tummy.

i have a web page about cat diarrhoea which you may find helpful
