Customer Question

I just acquired a five-week old kitten with terrible diarrhea. He had been wormed just before we picked him up and had been traeatde for fleas. I've had him now for 24 hours and the diarrhea has never stoppd. He is skin and bones and I'm afrid of losing him if we can't stop his runny bowels. What can we do?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How long before you picked him up was he wormed? What did they use?

Do you trust that they did?

What does the diarrhea look like? Any blood or mucus?

How is he otherwise? Dull, collapsed, weak?

Are his gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?
