Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?1) How long have you had this kitten?2) When did the diarrhea begin? 3) Are you feeding her the same food she was eating at the time of rehoming?4) What have you tried at home?
Have you had her examined and a fecal examination performed yet? This is typically the first approach that we make when pets are having issues with diarrhea, especially at such a young age. That would be one of the first approaches that I would make. She's old enough to also have acquired intestinal protozoan like giardia which may be causing the profuse diarrhea, as well.You can certainly add in a probiotic like Fortiflora to help balance any GI flora imbalances caused by stress, too.It sounds like you're doing what's necessary as far as the diet goes, too. Make sure to keep her at least on the Blue Buffalo kitten and try not to switch her until the diarrhea can be diagnosed and cleared. She may need to go on GI antibiotics like compounded metronidazole to help clear the diarrhea, too.
