Cat Veterinarian: Terri, Feline Healthcare Expert replied 2 months ago

blood in diarrhea can be caused by parasites or a GI upset. Get an OTC wormer containing praziquantel. Give her a dose now and again in 3 weeks.

Rub a dab of honey into her butt several times a day. it is a remarkable healing agent that acts as an anibiotic.

To cure diarrhea get a few jars of baby food chicken or turkey with no onion powder/ Add one tablespoon of boiled white rice to each jar. Feed until her stool firms up. Next, add the rice to a canned food she likes and eats readily.She also needs a probiotic so give one half tsp of plain yogurt daily or culturelle or forti flora.For hydration and to replace her electrolytes give her tuna water drained from the can into a dish.FOR RESTLESSNESS, make a cheap safe mood stabilizer add 3 mg of melatonin to food containing turkey. Either baby food or canned cat food.Turkey contains l.triptophan so combining it with melatonin will calm her down. However it must be given every 24 hours as the effects are cumulative.https://www.walmart.com/c/kp/melatonin-3-mgLet her eat small, frequent meals of foods she really likes and enjoys. Experiment with flavors and consistencies, then vary them so she does not get bored. I hope this information has been helpful. I will be standing by if you have other questions.
