Colonic Ulcer in Cats



Your cat's outpatient medical management will include changing its diet to include moderately fermentable fiber supplementation. Your veterinarian will advise you of the possibility of progressive disease and recurrence and may prescribe antimicrobials and anti-inflammatory drugs.


Living and Management


Clinical signs and body weight should be monitored every week to two weeks initially. Depending on the outcome, your cat may need ongoing antibiotic therapy.
