• My cat has early renal failure and has had some issues with constipation. He is on predensolone and Miralax. I took him in because there was a spot that I touched near his colon that was tender. The Vet gave me Cerenia to give him as needed. The Cerenia seems to be helping. My concern is that is when he defecates or passes gas it has a much stronger smell. What could make the smell seem stronger?

    Hi Amanda, I recommend that you call and talk to your local veterinarian about this question. These medications will not usually lead to changes in the feces but that is a possibility. However, there can potentially be other more serious underlying causes for this. Your vet can get some more information from you and let you know if this is something to be expected or if he needs to be seen again.

Need more information or advice?
