Q. My 11 yo f s/h indoor cat has diarrhea is and always been under weight.Called petite by vets. xrays show air in stomach and intestines. Solution?

Answered By

A. It is quite normal to see gas in the intestines if an animal has diarrhea. It depends on other symptoms and test results as to wether anything more than a bland diet and pro biotic is needed. You need to discuss this with your vet as they have examined and done investigation work so will be a better judge as to what the solution is.
