Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi. I'm Dr. Gotthelf. I have been a vet for 35 years and I would like to use my experience to help you with your pet's medical problem.
Kittens often get diarrhea from Coccidia and the Nemex will not get that. In addition, kitten milk replacer will cause diarrhea because it is too rich if fed undiluted. He may need some SubQ fluids, but if he is drinking, then that is the best and quickest way to rehydrate a kitten.
That is vital to know - I can give SubQ - warmed fluids - which ones do I use lacted ringers and how much.... he weighs 1.2 lbs.. If we are dealing with Coccidiaosis, should
I go with Albon - and with the SubQ fluids - what about 20 cc's ?
If he is drinking then let him drink. 20cc of Saline should be OK twice a day if needed. You can use Albon, but most people use Ponazuril because it kills coccidia in 2 days..
