Stomach and Intestinal Inflammation in Cats

 

Treatment

 

If an underlying cause is discovered, it is important that it be treated first. Parasites, for instance, are treated with an appropriate dewormer. Food allergies and hypersensitivities are controlled with an appropriate diet.

 

In cases where protein is lost from the intestines, special fluid products known as colloids may be required. Dehydration, meanwhile, must be corrected with fluid therapy.

 

Steroids such as prednisone or prednisolone are frequently used in treatment of eosinophilic gastroenteritis in cats. Other medications that may be necessary include anti-emetics to control vomiting and nausea.
