He was diagnosed with mega colon and could not hold his bowel. Everything he ate came out as gray mud. They tried dewormers, antibiotics and were giving him enemas every week. His poor lil bottom was so sore with fur missing up his tail and down his legs. I took him to our vet several times for bloodwork, x-ray and ultrasound looking for the problem, but all came out normal so I started to research. He would cry during the enema and it tore my heart out. After 2 times doing that I prayed over him every night asking God for an answer to his problem. The next vet visit, we decided to change his food to prescription diet for digestion. It was like a miracle, that night he went a normal brown color. We knew it had to be a digestion problem and started treating it and he has been responding great and growing. He is now over 5 lbs.
He was malnourished for months undiagnosed by the shelter vet and vet techs. The vet techs did save him from being put down months before, but being undiagnosed the problem got worse. The vet techs could not bring themselves to end his life when he is such a love and purr machine. He even went home with 2 people to care for him.
He was given distemper vaccines for 3 months at the shelter. I had him aids/leuk tested and he is negative. He has had personal one on one care every day to get to this point of growth. He is truly a fighter/survivor with a blessing from God. Now we want to find him the most loving home he can have because he deserves it.
He is now eating regular cat food wet and dry. He is neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped and tested neg. for aids/leuk.
