Hi.

Dr. Paul Brazzell here.

I really apologize for the wait- I just came online and saw that your question had not been answered.

How long has this been going on for and what are you feeding them?

It's been going on for a few months. They are fed Little Friskies canned cat food, chicken flavor bits and shreds.
Cat Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

Wow and all three of them have had this the whole time?

If so I really have to wonder about endoparasites, coccidia, cryptosporidia, tritrichomonas etc etc

Getting a stool sample analyzed would be a good idea

In the interim I would like you to feed the cooked chicken and nothing else.

Do this for a week.

You can also add in a probiotic like Foritflora.

Get the stool sample analyzed during this week.

And pick out a new diet for them- Only one flavor and canned only.

Start adding this in with the chicken over a few days.

Treat for anything found in stool sample testing.

Make sense?

Paul
