Sebastian Update: Cat w/ IBS
Sebastian, my male Siamese rescue, had terrible diarrhea. The vet originally thought it may be due to IBS. A fecal exam showed bacteria in the intestines. Sebastian was put on antibiotics for two weeks and Prednilisone for a month. Diarrhea went away, but returned a week or 10 days after we stopped using the antibiotic. So we sent a fecal sample to a special lab that can do a more thorough examination. The result: E-coli...well beyond what would be normal. So, we're back on antibiotics and prednilisone for a month. If that doesn't stop the diarrhea, we'll switch to a more potent antibiotic. The vet suspects IBS may still be part of the problem too. We're also still on Hill's Prescription i/d.
