Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Thanks so much for requesting me.
Can you please tell me what Riley eats so I can help.
As I stated in my initial post, she eats Purina Indoor Cat Formula Dry Food.
Thanks so much for your helpful reply.I did see that you said she eats Purina but I thought you were only giving her dry food because she has diarrhea.
Antibiotics destroy the "good" bacteria in the gut, and causes diarrhea, hence they told you to used a probiotic. It should help but may take a few days to take effect.
So, in the meantime, get a jar of chicken or turkey baby food. Make sure there are no onions or garlic in the ingredients. Add one tsp of rice cereal or boiled white rice.
Feed this combination and the probiotic until Riley's stool is normal for 48 hours.Then she can resume her normal diet.
You can use a half tsp a day of plain yogurt for a probiotic as it too contains acidophilus.
Please let me know how Riley is feeling. If you have any questions just press reply and I will be here for you.
Thanks so much for your positive rating and generous bonus. VERY appreciated!
I want to mention that some cats develop a sensitivity to the grains that are in supermarket cat food.
So, if Riley continues to have loose stools try a natural food like Halo.
It comes in wet and dry varieties. Most pet stores sell it.
Plus canned food is best for cats:www.catinfo.org
Please let me know how Riley is doing.
