Fecal incontinence develops when the cat loses control over defecation. This is usually a reason this is happening and needs to know why and what remedy to treat your cat with.
Due to this reason, cats may often defecate in places around the house or out of the litter box. As it is not well or stressed as there is an underlying issue that needs addressing.
Several pet owners confuse fecal incontinence with behavior issues and consider training the cat to use the litter box.
However, since fecal incontinence is an indicator of gastrointestinal and rectal disorders, pet owners should conduct a vet check to diagnose the underlying problem. Then seek the alternative natural medicines treatment according to diagnosis.
The cause of fecal incontinence varies. Pets that are older, may take longer to reach the litter box and hence defecate in unusual places.
Other pets may suffer from intestinal tumors, parasite infections and diseases of the lower urinary tract (which is common), feline leukemia, diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease or kidney stones.
Sometimes with Felines, they are actually constipated and are trying to expel stools at every chance they get. Finding small pieces of stool here and there. So in this case, I would highly recommend using Magnesium Citrate powder in meals, and HAMPL constipation remedy drops.
The most common symptoms of constipation include:
- Finding small nuggets, not one long stool.
- Difficulty or strain when attempting to pass stools
- Hard or compacted stools that are painful to pass
- Cramping or stomach aches that go away with bowel movements
- Alternating with diarrhea-like stools and hard dry small tools impact.
Neurogenic Sphincter Incontinence
This condition develops when the cat suffers from spinal cord injury, autonomic dysfunction or myopathy.
Pets suffering from neurogenic sphincter incontinence exhibit symptoms of fecal incontinence. Due to this condition, the cat is unable to retain feces in the body and suffers from involuntary defecation. Cats may also involuntary dribble fecal matter when excited, stressed or suffering from a cough. Cats that develop neurogenic sphincter incontinence require comprehensive neurological tests to determine the type and severity of spinal injury present.
If the spinal injury is treated homeopathically then this symptom should improve. It often would not need surgical correction to fix this.
WIth felines, urinary infections can be most common, and we can get mixed messages about if having issues with stools or bladder urinary issues.
See natural medicines for possibly other conditions. Sometimes we can try a natural treatment in conjunction with the Faecal Incontinence and see if it resolves. If you are giving the right remedy then you would see a change in 1- 4 days. If not, try another remedy.
