Customer Question
I have two male...

I have two male kittens five months old, both have chronic diarrhea, both have been tested negative for intestinal parasites, both have been treated several times with Dewormer. Both have been given an antidiarrheal medicine. Food has been changed for three days, no changed. What else can be done.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infestations the kitten can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the kitten's name?

One is Duke, the other is Tennessee.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the kitten?

No nothing else, they are healthy other than the diarrhea

Hi.

Dr. Paul Brazzell here.

This is a very common problem.

Do you mean that you changed the diet three times or that they have been on the new diet for three days?

Paul
