My 8 month old kitten had vomiting and diarrhoea. It started

Customer Question

My 8 month old kitten had vomiting and diarrhoea. It started yesterday morning again in the night and again this afternoon. She is not interested in food at all. She has always seems to have a very sensitive stomach, unlike her brother who has the same diet with no ill effects.
We cannot go to the vet until Monday as they are closed for the rest of the weekend. Is there anything I can do to help her. She still has reasonably good energy at the moment.
Many thanks

Hello,

I am sorry your fur baby is not feeling well. Something she ate disagreed with her.Go out and get a few jars of human baby food chicken or turkey with no onion or garlic and rice cereal.

Add one tablespoon of rice cereal or boiled white rice to a jar. Feed that until her stool is normal for for 48 hours .

Drain the water from a can of tuna into a bowl and let her lap it up for hydration.

Also give her a half tsp of plain yogurt every day for good bacteria.

If she is nauseated she can have one quarter of a ten mg pepcid A/C (famotidine) in a tablespoon of baby food.

How is she doing today?

Hello Terri,
Thank you very much for your reply. Unfortunately I only got your reply this morning, 28th Sept for some reason, even though you wrote on 26th Sept.
Little Lucia is much brighter today. I think the Pro-Kolin has helped her and a very restricted simple fishy diet. But your answer makes a lot of sense, I will certainly follow that route if it happens again, they are things I would never have thought of.
Thank you once again
