Customer Question
I have a two...

I have a two week old bottle baby kitten. His mother had 2 others that died shortly after birth and had the 4th one surgically removed. She could not produce milk after and came down with a terrible URI so we decided it was best to separate them. The male kitten I named Eli was put on antibiotics from the shelter I am fostering him from, through a nebulizer I have at home. (Mixed with saline) this was at a week old. Today is his marks his 2 weeks and I am tube feeding him ( via the vet at the shelter this is day 3) he has not been pooping really since and when he does it was a mooshy thick pale color ( I did also switch formula to a better brand so I figured this was the cause) but just now after feeding him and stimulating him, he did pass a mooshy white poop. Is there something I can do at home to help him? I do have fluids on hand to give subcutaneous fluids as well which I do give every now and then if I feel he is dehydrated

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Problems with drinking can be serious. I'm glad you noticed it. The Expert will know what to do. What is the kitten's name?

Eli

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Eli?

He can breathe through his nose, but will sometimes have mouth breathing moments than can last a couple mins at a time
