3 month old feral with diarrhea post neuter? Stress?
Thank you in advance for all and any support and advice you can offer for this little guy.
So the short version of this story is that we trapped 'Pumpkin' a little earlier than planned as we discovered an injured foot. He was neutered and 3 bite wounds were cared for while he was under anesthesia yesterday. He received vaccines, ivermectin, and a slow release antibiotic.
I started to try and socialize him today so I can adopt him, which meant sitting in his room once I had put food down and turning away from him so he didn't feel threatened but would have to eat while I was there - which he did, but as soon as he was brave enough to come and eat with me in the room he started to poop everywhere - just plopping out wherever he was standing. he has used the litter box before now and had solid poop this morning.
I contacted the vet that saw him yesterday and she said it is likely just stress and to continue to feed him to keep his blood sugar up and she said that if he is eating and drinking, if there is no vomiting and he isn't lethargic then I shouldn't panic.
I have been trying to read up on similar situations but I am so worried about him that I thought I would ask directly if anyone has had a similar situation.
