Cats with intestinal disease have a wide range of clinical signs. Weight loss, despite a normal or increased appetite is very common. Cats that are chronically ill usually have a loss of fat over the spine (so that the spine is palpable). Other cats have routinely vomit food, fluid and/or . Contrary to what many pet lovers believe, hairballs are not normal in cats, and they are not due to a "grease deficiency". As a result, I do not recommend the use of over-the-counter "hairball remedies" or "hairball diets."Other cats with gastrointestinal disease have diarrhea or constipation. Still others have reductions in their normal appetite, or do not eat for one or more days. Because the clinical signs of cats with intestinal disease are often similar to those of other diseases (chronic kidney disease, urinary tract obstruction in male cats, chronic progressive kidney disease, diabetes and hyperthyroidism), it is important to promptly seek a veterinary examination and evaluation for your cat or kitten. With most gastrointestinal diseases, lab work and a urinalysis is most often normal. However, normal lab work does not guarantee that your cat doesn't have a problem.

2) I posit that in the wild, a cat essentially gets a dose of “probiotics” with every meal. By eating the guts of their prey, cats have a constant supply of bacteria to feed their gastrointestinal tracts, their microbiomes. The diet we feed our cats, even those feeding fresh food,The addition of probiotics to every cat and kitten's diet may be an important contributor to their long term health. Given their safety, other than the expense of including probiotics from a young age, there is no reason not to provide this supplement to your pet for life. (Although rare, some cats [and people] do have allergic reactions or an intolerance to an ingredient in the probiotic, whether one or more strains, or an additive to the supplement). At a minimum, a course of probiotics is recommended during and for at least a month after antibiotic administration (and no, not just E faecium, which most pets provide via a Purina product).Your cat's system needs energy in order to repair and maintain itself, and without proper digestion of food, your cat can't get the energy she needs. Surgery, stomach sickness, and other health issues can lead to digestive problems in cats, making it even more difficult for your pet to recover from sickness, injury, and surgery. Hill's Prescription Diet i/d Gastrointestinal Health Dry Feline Formula has been formulated by the nutritional experts at Hill's to address digestion problems in cats.
