I am desperate to find out what is wrong with my almost 4 year old spayed female. She has been to the vet more than a dozen times and they have not been able to tell me what is wrong with her. Currently she is wheezing, has a limp occasionally, and very hard stool. The stool is also spiral shaped. She will scoot across the carpet leaving stripes.
She has been put on a stool softener Lactulose recently. That seemed to help a bit but with the wheezing the vet put her on Clavamox so I stopped the stool softener. She now has very soft stool that slips out without her knowing it. So we stopped the Clavamox and her wheezing is back. The vet said that she would be giving her an anti- biotic shot this coming Monday if the wheezing came back.

Some of the vets she has seen in the past shaved her rear so the poop would not stick and that was mostly all they did. The recent vet clinic has done blood work and x-rays with nothing found. We have put Flamazine cream on her rear as well as Hibitane cream. The cat is not getting better but worse. Does anybody have any ideas as to what is wrong with my cat?

Does anybody have any ideas as to what is wrong with my cat?[/nq]constipation is nearly always diet related - try a very small portion of butter say 1/4 of a teaspoon. Most cats like butter but too much is not good for them but a small regular dose for a few days should soften her motions. The other symptoms sounds like a parasite infection, maybe in the lungs or even heart worm (cats can get it as well as dogs) Make sure she is not eating faeces.. she may respond to a short course of corticosteroid tablets BUT bear in mind that after about 6 weeks the original symptoms can come back and it tends to mask the diagnosis of cancers if present so be cautious about this form of treatment.

Some vets prescribe corticosteroids as they know the symptoms go away but unfortunately it does nothing for the longterm diagnosis of the underlying problem.
i hope it is a simple case of treatable parasites or worms.. I've been down this path.
