Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
1) When did the diarrhea begin? 2) Are you seeing any weight loss? 3) When was the last time Pooh had bloodwork? 4) Any illnesses she's been diagnosed with?
A few more questions, if you don't mind:1) Is she indoor only? 2) Has she had any changes to her diet?
A change in her diet could most certainly be the cause of the diarrhea. The increased appetite may be due to the fact that she is not digesting the food well.I would recommend moving her back to the same foods that she was eating before the diarrhea started and see if this does not result in a resolution of her symptoms. There may be something in the new treats that is resulting in the diarrhea. If this does not help, you can try adding a few tsp of canned pumpkin (not pie filler) to her food each time that she eats. If she's a cat that consumes food throughout the day, you can mix it into her regular food.If the diarrhea does not improve with these measures or she worsens (blood in the stool, vomiting, etc) I would recommend having her examined and blood work run to ensure that she does not have an underlying condition like hyperthyroidism that could be contributing to the symptoms.I’ll be standing by if you have other questions. Let me know if I can help further.
