hyperthyroidism and 12-year-old male cat
Is there any relationship between hyperthyroidism and rectal bleeding in a cat? My 12-year-old male cat seems relatively healthy on the whole. I give him a 5 mg. methimazole tablet daily. He urinates and has bowel movements on a regular basis. However, his pink rear seems to be bloated and there is frequently a fecal crust on it after he”s had a bowel movement. When I remove the “aftermath” with water, I always find blood spots on the cloth. I also see blood spots on the floor or wherever he first sits down after a bowel movement. I do not see blood in the feces itself; I only see it in his rectal area. Is this something that needs a vet”s attention? And does it have any connection to his hyperthyroidism problem?
