Otherwise doing well. Seems hungrier, yelling at 2-2.5 hours instead of 3.5 or so more often since switching to water/kmr mix, but very active and vocal.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help. In regards ***** ***** question, you can give Propectalin or the others (though less effective) to this kitten mixed into his KMR. Also if he is more vocal and losing fluids with the diarrhea, your mixture is good but also consider using electrolytes (ie Lectaid, Pedialyte, etc) to just replenish the electrolytes also being lost in his diarrhea.Please take care, Dr. B. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. **Afterwards, I would be grateful if you would rate my service by clicking on the "Rate my Expert' button at the top of the page as this is the only way I am credited for helping you.
