Hello. This is Dr. Hill. Watery diarrhea can become very dangerous in a kitten. The strongid will not help. Ideally, you should have Chili seen by a local veterinarian. If that is not an option, then you can start her propectalin. This is available through chewy.com. You could also call your local veterinarian because it is over the counter. It is a probiotic with kaolin clay to help firm up stools. I would be careful changing the food around because it may be making the diarrhea worse. Is Chili eating normally? How old is she?

Her eating habit hasnt changed. She eat 3 times a day at least. She is about 13 weeks now.

Okay. That is great news. I would start with the propectalin and pick just one brand and flavor of food for now. When you take her in to the next clinic, take a fresh stool sample so that they can run a fecal. Strongid is a great broad spectrum dewormer, but it does not take care of giardia or coccidia. If Chili starts vomiting, stops eating or has any blood in her stool then she needs to be seen right away. Please ask any follow up questions.
