What can I do to help my cat with digestive upset and smelly feces?

Q.I have a cat that is overweight and seems to have problems with her digestive system. She had bladder stones last fall and since then, her feces have smelled very rank. She does not have a lot of energy.


A.I would liken your cat to a car that needs a tune-up. It’s not running well, it’s taking a lot of gas, and its exhaust stinks. Rank feces and bladder problems – these are the two exhausts of the body, can be connected to an inefficient metabolism. I would suggest you start with pancreatic enzymes and a higher quality diet. You could also add a multi-vitamin and an anti-oxidant enzyme.

Try this for about four weeks or so and you should see a change. Remember you may see an improvement and then suddenly, your cat passes some very stinky feces again; this is probably just part of the detoxification process, so be a little patient. If you don’t see any improvement, you may wish to consider a metabolic analysis.
