New to posting here.....I hope those of you with experience in this have some advice for me!
I have 2 indoor cats, Xanadu (female) and Gizmo (male). Both are about 6 yrs old, fixed and indoor only. Xanadu had issues with explosive diarrhea when she was young....the vets could never figure it out. Eventually I figured it might be red dye she was allergic to and took her favorite red toy away. Her diarrhea stopped.
Recently Xanadu has been having diarrhea again and I noticed it had red blood in it. I took a sample to the vet. He said nothing is wrong and she must have irritable bowel. Xanadu is on the plump side, she hasn't lost her appetite and doesn't seem to be in pain. She has seemed grumpy towards Gizmo lately. I guess I'm having a hard time with the vets diagnosis and think it is just a cover up for "I don't know what's wrong". From what I've read, it doesn't sound like Xanadu exhibits the signs of irritable bowel.
Could there be another explaination?
