Hiya! So I adopted a 5 month brother and sister on Saturday,

Customer Question
Hiya! So I adopted...

Hiya! So I adopted a 5 month brother and sister on Saturday, and went thru the whole shebang to try and get them everything exactly like they had. However, the food I was told they were on seems to be causing my male to have issues and he's been having accidents in the form of foul smelling yellow Diarrhea, it's gone on for about 2 days now, and I'm worried he's not getting what he needs. I've taken the food away and made sure he's drinking a lot of water, but I don't know how to procede

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the cat?

As far as I know, no, I think the only vaccinations they need is distemper, but as for anything else, I haven't had them long enough to know
