Feline Diarrhoea is one of the more common illnesses and indicates a problem in the intestines or colon. It could be a symptom of an underlying disease of the intestine or colon wall; for example, inflammatory bowel disease . It can also be caused by a viral or bacterial infection. Other causes include foreign body ingestion or dietary indiscretion. Diarrhoea can be mild and self-limiting; or debilitating and life threatening. In the case of an acute attack of diarrhoea knowing the cat's activities and whereabouts previous to the outbreak of diarrhoea may help determine the cause. If the cat has been to a boarding kennel, grooming parlour, or even run away for a few hours, it may have contacted a virus from another animal. If the cat has a history of getting in the garbage it may suggest the problem is due to an intestinal foreign body or ingestion of spoiled food.
The history may suggest the problem is a simple one due to a different brand of cat food, or too many table scraps. However if the problem has been going on for a long time this may indicate a chronic condition such as inflammatory bowel disease. Considering its complex architecture, the delicate interplay of its components with other organs and glands in the digestive system, and the many challenging and vitally necessary tasks it must constantly perform, it's no wonder that things might go wrong with the feline digestive tract now and then. Digestive system disorders in general are among the most frequently observed health problems in cats. Many of these disorders are primarily associated with organs such as the liver, pancreas and gall bladder -all of which play a crucial role in the digestive system.
