Abscess cat stomach

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess cat stomach


Avatar n tn This could be an abscess, which could get infected-if it hasn't already. An abscess would be very likely if your cat is an outdoor cat or you have a multiple cat household. I'd take kitty to the vet so that he/she can drain it and give him some antibiotics. In the meantime, you can put warm compresses on him for 5-10 minutes at a time a couple of times a day.
Avatar n tn Hi, I am 33 yrs old with no prior history of stomach problems. Last month I had an appendectomy for a ruptured appendix. I believe I had the appendectomy not more than 12 hours after the appendix ruptured. The surgeon did an open surgery, and I stayed at the hospital for 5 days on antibiotic IV, followed by oral antibiotics after I was discharged.
Avatar f tn The only way I can keep any food down at all is if it's tiny (aka a granola bar, or half a slice of toast.). - Immediate onset of stomach bloating. I go from a completely flat stomach to sticking out about 3-4 inches(sometimes more) and looking as if I'm a few months pregnant. Persists even after vomiting. - Whilst lying on my back, there is a large mass/lump thing around my belly button area that I can push and move around. Painful when pressure is on it.

Avatar f tn The liver and other organs store small amounts of carbohydrates and the cat may receive additional minute amounts of this nutrient through the stomach and intestines of her prey; this however, would never total more than 1-2% carbohydrates compared to the total weight of the prey. However, commercial dry foods may contain as much as 45% carbohydrates. A diet high in carbohydrates will result in obesity, because excessive amounts of this nutrient are converted by the liver to body fat.
587315 tn?1333556383 Possible causes are abdominal bleeding, organ rupture, or inflammation of the abdominal wall lining. Lumps, Bumps, Swelling - any local swelling of any size on your cat could be an abscess but it could also be a tumor (benign or malignant), cyst, insect bite, hematoma, fracture, or soft tissue trauma (sprain, pocket of fluid such as infected oil gland). Vet care should immediate. http://www.sniksnak.com/cathealth/vet.
Avatar n tn but if it's spreading badly it would explain the symptoms. It could also be a sign of a stomach ailment. Even a solo indoor cat can pick up a parasite infection, it's actually not uncommon. Look in your cat's mouth for any signs of dental issues and take a close look at his stool (although that won't necessarily tell you if there's a parasite, depending on the type). Also; your cat is at an age where they start to develop some of the older cat conditions, like diabetes and hyperthyroidism.
Avatar n tn A week following my surgery (about 2 days after I returned home from the hospital) I developed a kidney infection, which was treated with Cipro. Then, a week following that, I started having more stomach pain, along with diarrhea. A CT Scan revealed "Acute Diverticulitis". I was put on Levaquin/500mg & Flagyl/500mg. I have been on this for six days. I have had moderate to severe diarrhea for two weeks now. I just assumed that it was from all of the antibiotics I've been on.
Avatar n tn Right side pain and tenderness should be investigated for appendicitis and appendicular abscess. It can also be a kidney abscess or a psoas muscle abscess. If the pain is higher up, it can a liver infection, gall stones, liver abscess or subdiaphragmatic (below the diaphragm) abscess. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn A month after my surgery, I developed an infection in my belly button with an abscess forming in the incision. That has since cleared up, but the pain is still there. I've also been consistently bloated, especially around my belly button, ever since the surgery- which NEVER has happened before. This is my third lap. Also since the surgery, I've had recurring issues with constipation, heart burn around an hour after I eat, and waves of nausea. Any idea what could be going on?
Avatar n tn I got my kitten about a month and a half ago and when I first got her she had some abscess on her neck where I started to treat them myself and they seemed to be getting better. About three weeks ago I took her to the vet because they weren't fully healed and she seemed to have a bit of a sneeze. He then decided to put her on some anti-biotic to treat the abscess as well as the small cold she had.
Avatar f tn Pain in the upper left abdomen and chest area can be due to stomach issues (GERD or hiatal hernia), spleen issues, due to an abscess below the left diaphragm, a hematoma (localized collection of blood), an abscess, or a muscle pull (as it happened while playing). Ultrasound would have ruled out spleen problems and an abscess below the left diaphragm. A CT scan would be more diagnostic. Yes, it would be worth it to go for a CT. Take a late night snack. Raise head end of bed.
Avatar n tn I'm 41yrs old, in reasonable fitness and health but have been diagnosed with a ruptured appendix and have had a drain/antibiotic therapy to clear up the infection and abscess. The appendix will be taken out in 4 weeks' time. What range of physical activity should I carry out in the interval? Would there be a risk of causing damage by lifting, bending, moderate gym exercise etc ? Thanks..
Avatar f tn As CML2014 stated in her comments you need to find out the underlying cause of this lump on your kitty's stomach. You say your current vet says your cat should be given an MRI. I don't know if this is appropriate , but what about an ultrasound ? I'm just suggesting this.
Avatar f tn Hi, I was rushed in for an emergency operation 3 years ago due to severe abdominal pains (suspected abscess on my appendix) where a 20cm cyst was found in my abdomen. About 1liter was drained from it and it was found only to contain lymphocytes and nothing more serious. Since then it has grown back so I had drain fitted under CT scan. This did not work due to the structure of the cyst. It has since grown even bigger and I often get stomach pains.
Avatar n tn I then developed another abscessed tooth (I seem to have a chronic periodontal abscess formation) so I'm back on antibiotics (Clindamycin) until Wednesday of next week. I've been experiencing bouts of nausea since Thanksgiving (sometimes relieved with eating, sometimes not), overall stomach discomfort, and now the dull pain has moved its way up to my rib cage.
Avatar n tn The thyroid function test came back a bit high, so the doctor referred them to an endocrinologist, who felt that even though a bit high, it was not enough to be of concern. A CAT scan revealed nothing significant. An EEG was insignificant. Her blood sugar levels are fine, both fasting and non-fasting. The family doctor has determined this to be anxiety attacks, and put the girl on 50mg of Zoloft per day.
Avatar n tn Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) Crohn's disease Ulcerative colitis Anorectal abscess Infectious colitis (infection of the colon) Colorectal cancer or tumors Radiation proctitis or colitis (inflammation of the colon or rectum from radiation) Perhaps if the thought was infections colitis, then antibiotics would help. Tenesmus can also be caused by prostatitis - in which case antibiotics would help. However, without a clear diagnosis I cannot be sure what is causing your symptoms.
Avatar f tn On Friday (09/09) the ENT said that blood test had ruled out bacterial and common virual infections mentioning Ebstein-Barr (mono), rhino virus, cat scratch fever, toxoplasmosis, lyme disease by name. On (09/13) we returned to the ENT for a wound check the doctor said that all blood test had come back negative and we were now waiting pathology results from the the lymph node tissue and he also noticed that he had gotten a new lump around the one at the back of his neck.
Avatar f tn is basically telling me there is no defect and there is no seroma and no abnormalities period and everything looks fine yet the cat scan says different, I want to know if the Dr has more knowledge of the cat scans or does the radiologist? Which do I believe? I am getting a 2nd opinion but I always thought the purpose of a cat scan was to determine the problem & were Accurate.

Avatar n tn Then I was given so much Demerrol for 12 days I barely knew myself-seemed to have severe withdrwal and then followed 9 months of the worst weakness ever during which I has CAT scans of abdomen, endoscopy, colon tests again . I did not have surgery for the peritonits but it was "close". to that. I have had weak spells since and one really nice Internist suggest CFS. My issue now is a feeling of pressure and sometimes lighting sharp pains just to the left under my ribs.
5347058 tn?1381192026 This may not sound like a big deal, but we have a ton of stuff, and it is a very long process to move it all. Plus I have a crippled back and have been sick with some weird, mysterious stomach illness. So, I have been dreading that. I woke up this morning to find one of my beloved cats sick. He has an abscess or something on his eye/cheek area. He's lethargic and obviously uncomfortable. It's Sunday, and we are out in the boonies, so no emergency vet to take him to. I feel so helpless.
Avatar n tn No blood flow to his heart and stomach lining A tear in the wall of his stomach A harder time breathing In some cases, the dog's stomach will rotate or twist, a condition that vets call gastric dilatation volvulus. It traps blood in the stomach and blocks it from returning to the heart and other areas of the body. This can send your baby into shock .
Avatar m tn Have h-pylori, and now have been through the course of antibiotics. Had a contrast cat scan 2 months ago, and the report that concerns me is below. I am still having soreness and bloating after meals. I had a follow-up cat scan 2 days ago and nothing has changes. Is the stranding noted below anything to be concerned about? Has anyone ever seen this before without some other very serious disorder? Thanks The pancreas appears normal. The spleen also appears normal.

Avatar m tn I was in the hospital for 10 days on the 3 different types of antibiotics, Flagel, Cipro and another that escapes my mind currently. I was sent home even though I still had fever because the latest cat scan showed my abscess was nearly gone so I was prescribed 2 more weeks of Flagel and Cipro. A week later I do my follow-up and they suggest another cat scan but there was an insurance foul up so it never took place.
295767 tn?1240191914 I went to see my gyn/onc and he ordered a CAT scan. The scan revealed an abscess in my lower pelvic area that needed to be drained. I had to be re-admitted into the hospital for another 3 days to surgically put a drain in my bottom. I walked around with a bag hanging off my butt draining a liquid I can only say resembled dirty dishwasher fluid. The drain/bag was left in for 2 weeks! After my CAT scan came back clean, the bag was removed. Exactly one week later the high fevers started again.
Avatar f tn They are saying her colon is leaking but when they run a cat scan (four now), they can't find any leakage. Yet they know there is a leak because of stool or some such that has been found in the fluid. They are trying to allow her colon time to heal on its own but, may have to do further surgery. They have drained the fluid from her abdominal cavity (two times).
