I kittens. We started with a litter of 5, lost 2 of them.

Customer Question

I foster kittens. We started with a litter of 5, lost 2 of them. The remaining three are exhibiting the same same symptoms as the two that passed. They have diarrhea, are vomiting constantly, dehydrated. We've done several fecals and parvo tests, everything has come up negative. They've gotten metronidazole, albon and dewormers. Any idea what it could be?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the kitten eat anything unusual?
Customer: No, nothing out of the ordinary.
JA: OK. The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the kitten's name?
Customer: Their names are***** and Coconut.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Peach?
Customer: NO

How old are Plum and Coconut?

Have we tested for FIV and FeLV (feline aids and feline leukemia ?)

Have we checked a white blood cell count?

You may also consider having the diarrhea PCR tested to be a little more specific on what is causing these symptoms.
