PET SYMPTOMS


Painful defecation is the leading health problems in the veterinary field. Most commonly seen in feline patients, painful defecation is due to a condition known as constipation. Constipation refers to irregular bowel movements, hard or dry bowels, combined with pet straining. Constipation is always a medical concern as in healthy pets a bowel should be present daily. Consult the veterinarian when constipation is noted as serious underlying health problems could be the cause.

Constipation should be identified quickly to seek medical attention; therefore pet handlers should be knowledgeable on the signs and symptoms to look for in their pets. Signs and symptoms which are present in a constipated pet includes; a noticeable lack in self grooming, abdominal discomfort (noted by a hunched over state), vomiting, lethargy, decrease in body weight, decreased appetite, frequent use of litter box or trips outside, pain, straining and crying while defecating. The stools which are passed by a constipated pet may appear hard or dry, mucus or blood covered.

Although constipation is not viewed as a medical condition, a prolonged condition can cause damage to the internal portions of the intestine.
