    Exclamation rectal bleeding in kittens

    hi all,
    my cats litter of kittens are now about 6 weeks old, i wormed them as per instructions at age 2 weeks then again at 4 and again today at 6 weeks, ive just noticed that one of them was in the litter tray and was crying out as tho in pain and had bleeding from his butt, and a squiggly looking..... i dunno either poo or possibly a worm? yesterday i saw them all poo and it was solid but today its errr i dunno...
    is this normal after worming? could it be worms?
    is there blood sometimes when worms are coming out?

    I wonder if you are seeing a prolapsed rectum?
    Was it bleeding or simply a reddish looking protrusion?
    Madness takes its toll.
    Please have exact change.

    Oh wow. It's not even two in the afternoon here in Eastern USA.
    I'm not sure what would be causing that... Are they eating solid food?
    Somehow I don't think its the wormer

    yeah theyve just started eating solid food this wek, kitten food that is.. thing that made me lean towards if they had worms was before this week the mother cleaned them up when they did there "buisness" but now they go in litter tray,

    This is a guess- but after looking at some stuff in my book- sounds like he has worms. Wormer should help get rid of those but to help with the diarrea (sp?) give him some fiber (grass, 1/8 teaspoon bran (good amount for a kitten I think).
    Is he scootingaround the floor at all? And heres the kicker of a question- are there fragments of or whole worms in the feces?

    there is not supposed to be blood.

    Constipation comes to mind on the kitten crying out. On top of the pain from the probably "hard" thing coming out.

    worms should easily come out. They aren't very big in essence...not big enough to cause what you are describing.

    I would watch the kitten carefully. Very carefully tonight.

    How much blood? a drop? was the poo black/blackish reddish?

    I'd follow up with your vet first thing in the morning. But if anything else happens, you need to get the kitten to the vet tonight.
    Nothing like seeing nature from the back of a horse!
