Hi there! You commented on my sick kitten and I can't figure out how to comment back! She was on fancy feast as recommended by the vet. We just changed her to purina pro plan for kittens, as recommended by the vet. We have been putting about a tsp of squash baby food in her soft food, as the vet said that or pumpkin may help. We are at a loss of what to do and of course, have spent so much money that we aren't looking to spend anymore. So far I've noticed a tiny bit of difference since we changed the food and with the squash, but not much. She eats really well and she knows how to use the litter box, but she can't make it there....it comes out wherever she is. It's like running and light brown in color.....not to get too graphic! Any help is appreciated!
Hi, Danielle. It just breaks my heart that your kitten is having these issues. Diarrhea in kittens is actually pretty common. It can be due to an bacterial infection which it looks like your vet suspected. If it's a virus, antibiotics usually won't do any good although there are some anti-viral antibiotics out now. Make sure that your kitten doesn't get anything from your food table and that she's not chewing on plants or other non-food items or drinking cow's milk. Instead of the squash or pumpkin (not pie mix--canned pumpkin), you can also try an eighth of a teaspoon of wheat bran in her food. She may not be able to tolerate commercial kitten food such as Fancy Feast. Purina makes a prescription food. I'd ask about putting her on a special diet. It doesn't seem like she's acting "sick" from what you said, but it could eventually get there. Dehydration is one of the worst side-effects of constant diarrhea--that, plus the baby won't gain wait if her food goes through her like a freight train. Again, I'd like to suggest a second opinion from another vet, or a visit to your specialty clinic. I know you've spent a lot of money on her, but I also have the feeling that you love her very much and don't want to give up on her. I'm not sure that you can pawmail me since you aren't Catster members, but try clicking on Izzie's profile photo in the answers section. If that doesn't work, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I wish you MUCH good luck with your baby. Please keep me updated!
Joy and Iz.
