Customer Question

Re. my 2 cats Leo and Obi that have been having diarrhea. I am thinking of starting them on their old diet again. I'm just a little nervous that it could have had something to do with the food. They have pretty different diets and only share one common food. I won't give them that common food anymore just to be safe. But I was wondering - I do feed Leo the Primal Freeze Dried Turkey. If he got sick from that food, is there any possibility he could have passed something on to Obi. With people that get food poisoning - that doesn't really happen, but I wanted to check with cats before I start feeding him that again.

It's possible if they share the same litter box. (People don't share litter boxes!) It's an interesting test but it seems stopping the one common food would be reasonable first.
