We went to the vets again today and Mo saw his regular lady vet, unfortunately Mo is having a bad time with his Irritable bowel syndrome this last week and has been passing a lot of blood in his stools. We are to go back again in 1week to discuss options for what to do next. The vet would like to anaesthetise Mo and carry out some biopsies from his bowel to check everything is ok. I'm not sure I want to put him through that but as the vet says, he is a young cat and we need to make sure that nothing is being missed that could be helped. He has been on steroids for about 3months now and they worked really well at first but hes been struggling recently. There is risks to being on steroids for a long period of time, they can shorten life expectancy and damage bones, but I would rather Mo have a comfortable shorter life than be in pain. It's very difficult to know what to do sometimes, I just want him to be well. With IBS we will have good days and bad and i have to expect that. We've tried all different foods, dry, wet, raw etc. I just want to do the right thing by him.
