Hi .. I have question for my kitten 8 weeks old
its female and having diarrhea (light brown with bad smell) since 30 hours
I don't know what to give it?
my mother give it starch with one teaspoonful yogurt and mash potato to stop the diarrhea
can we give it baby sterile oral re-hydrating solution? (1 mL every 30 minutes)
and can we give it antibiotic to stop the diarrhea? (nifuroxazide for example)
what about corn starch? is it good for kitten with diarrhea?
is it ok to give her the starch with the yogurt like what we did today?
I will stop feeding her just give her liquids for the next 12 hrs
after that .. give her baby cat dry food only with the water and pedialyte?
can we give her poached chicken? or let her get well before?
she didn't stool after stoping the feeding these 5 hrs just urinate
we didn't give her food this 5 hrs just water, water with honey and pedialyte
when should we feeding her? after how many hours?
we will give her mash potato and tomorrow white rice with poached chicken and the same pedialyte
How often do we should feeding her per day? What is the right amount? (for example 2 tablespoonful from this and that)

Doctor .. sorry for bothering
I have question please
I spoke with expert and he told me to give her 0.5mL form Cefixime
I search about it and I found a lot of information that it use in many infections but I didn't found any information that it use to treat diarrhea!
from your knowledge and experience .. can Cefixime used to treat diarrhea? and what do you think is more effective for this case Nifuroxazide or Augmentin?
I will not give Bella antibiotics until I visit veterinarian .. this is just for my information
I think she is better .. thank you for asking :)
today she eat 3 times mash potato and rice
she make in the afternoon light green mucus stools .. but it coherent not like the light brown watery of the yesterday!
is she will be ok if her stools is green with mucus? and what is that mean? she feel cold for example?
(she do it just one time, so I don't know if the situation will be repeated)
really! I'm happy to hear that!
my sister said the same .. it's green with pale color seems like potato pieces
she play and sleep as usual .. I didn't feel that there are something change
is there average for kitten sleeping hours?
that what I want to know!
doctor she doing will but today my mother give her her dry food (royal canin) she thought that she needs vitamins and mineral which is available in this food!
but the diarrhea back again it is very watery .. I'm feeling upset because I told my mother to keep Bella in the potato and rice diet until she become well!!
my mother still want to let Bella eat the dry food!
what can I do?
