Hello againSorry to hear about Malone's health problems, hopefully the loose stools is due to something very minor, however I have worked out a fuller reply for you below.1. Loose gray stools such as you describe are not usually associated with kidney disease in the cat, it could be he has eaten something he should not have or it could be the treat or other rich food or perhaps he has somehow picked up a tummy bug of some kind.
2. Where cats have other ongoing disease situations as in Malone's case I often suggest a common sense measure first. For example live yogurt added to the food or given orally can often help. Some gastro-enteritis situations are caused by an imbalance in the bacteria in your cat's gut. Live yogurt is full of " good " bacteria and will seed them into Malone's intestinal tract and hopefully restore the balance. A teaspoon twice a day should be fin efor an adult cat.3. But of course is these symptoms continue or if he deteriorates further in any way you should have your vet check him over just to be on the safe side.Regards,Dr ScottPlease be kind enough to rate my service to you after we have concluded our dialogue, such feedback helps me maintain the quality of my answers.
