Cats/no tail kitten bowel problems


tigergurl wrote at 2013-04-21 22:23:51
My kitten is having similar issues, and the veterinarian told me that kittens born w/o a tail sometimes fail to develop the nerves that control urination and rectal function.  I am, at this very moment, digging for answers to see if there is any help for this.  He also suggested that it might be a parasite problem, but a fecal sample is the only way to be sure.

Good luck with Stinky.
