Good evening, Our 5 month old kitten Nacho has been having a few strange symptoms since his neutering 2 weeks ago. He's been passing stool less frequently (used to be twice a day, then down to once, and for the past few of days only every other day). They're also much harder and he's straining sometimes unsuccessfully. On top of this, on 4 occasions this week he's vomited his food within 5 mins of eating which is something he's never done before. He's eating a lot less than usual too. We took him to the vet yesterday, and were told his large intestine might have slowed as a rare side effect of the general anaesthesia used for the neutering. The vet could feel gas and hard stool in the abdomen but nothing else abnormal. We were given a laxative and antibiotic and told to ring up if he fails to pass stool for 36 hours, or swings to diarrhoea. Unfortunately it's nearing 36 hours with still no stool, and he's even more off his food than before, having vomited his lunch again today and only nibbling at dinner. Despite all this he's as active and curious as ever, and doesn't seem to be in any pain or have a fever which is all reassuring (he's swatting my hand as I type!). Also, his neutering has healed nicely and there were no complications. Has anyone else had their cat experience symptoms like this, and did you eventually get to the bottom of what it was? Seeing as he's not showing any signs of improvement we're not entirely convinced in the vet's diagnosis and are worried it could be something a bit more serious, like a hairball that might be impacting. Thanks to anyone who can help shed some light on this!
