My cat's inside of her mouth has turned black

by sandra
(Greendale, Wi.)

I have a 20 year old Maine Coon, and because her stool was extremely hard she got plugged up. So after xrays and enema's at the vet she was put on Cisapride 2x a day and another medication that looks like fish oil, also 2x a day.
Now I'm seeing that the inside of her mouth has turned black, and her stool is still hard as a rock? I'm wondering if it's the medication that has caused the black mouth and why her stool is still so hard, even though she's pooping somewhat. She's on total soft food now.
thank you


I suspect its a reaction or side effect to the medications but your best bet is to call the vet that prescribed the products and ask if this is the reason. He or she has the full knowledge of your cats condition and is better able to answer correctly.
