Add a comment to Kitten's experience. Is there anything I can do to help shorten the time of constipation? I inquired about a Manx cat and the foster mom responded to my questions and also told me the cat about once a month for days has a prolapsed butt which goes away naturally. Rectal prolapse is not normal in any cat, but Manx cats are prone to the problem due to nerve abnormalities that may exist because of their lack of tail. Anytime an internal part of the body protrudes through to another, or in this case, outside the body, it can result in blood restriction and tissue death. He is constantly licking his butt.
Your vet performs various tests to identify the hidden cause to develop a treatment plan based on the findings.
Prolapsed Rectum in Kittens
Seems to be thriving but this morning I noticed what appears to be a pus filled sac or lump on side of anus. Sutures are then placed around the anus to keep the rectum in the body. Has Symptoms Redness, excessive licking. Was this experience helpful? You should only feed canned kitten food because it has higher calories than adult food.
