Hello, I am in desperate need of any help/advice you may be able to provide.
I have a 9 week old kitten who was diagnosed by a local vet with ‘manx syndrome’. He was born w/o a tale and as a result, he has no control over his bowel movements. He walks on the sides of his back legs also. The vets only suggestion was to put him to sleep- but I refused to take that option.
He is very playful, and seems to enjoy his life- he also has a great appetite. I notice that his belly is swollen though, and he does bleed from the rear at times.
I am currently using baby socks for diapers and when I change him I apply betadine solution to keep him clean and a little antibiotic ointment as well.
I want to help this little guy have the best quality of life as possible- any help you can provide is appreciated.
Major concerns: Loose stools, bleeding, swollen tummy.
Thanks, God Bless
