loose stool
 
Okay guys, here's the deal. Since Boo came home from her spay, she's been have some fairly loose stool. I expected one or two, from the fasting and the anesthesia since I know that can mess with their systems, but it's not getting any better. could it be from the pain meds they sent me home with? Buprenix .3 mg given twice a day. I'm not planning on giving her the last two doses since she's right back to her old self, no apparent soreness or tenderness and the incision is healing nicely. but if loose stool isn't a common thing after either the anesthesia or from the pain med, then we're back to the vet in the morning. Boo and I are both tired of me having to wash the fur on her backside:yuck: she's eating and drinking just fine, so I'm not super worried just yet, and shows no sign of dehydration. I just don't want this going on too long, ya know?

Did he put her on a preventive antibiotic? I wonder if probiotic might not help?

I think a probiotic would be a great idea. Buprenex is more likely to cause constipation than diarrhea, but individual cats may have different reactions. Was Boo also vaccinated at the same time? Sometimes the cumulative stress of all that going on in their little bodies can cause GI disturbances.

ooh, yeah, she got her last vaccine at the same time. but everything cleared up within a day (sorry for the delay in responding) and other than the occasional bit of gas, everything's going in and coming out normally.
