does Milo have diarrhea?

I don’t know. I’ve nevwr had a pet before and have had Milo for less than a week. It was formed stool but he backed up and stepped into it. He’s 9 weeks old. Got poop everywhere when he stepped out of the litter box. Not sure how to clean his back paw, I tried to wash it with water under the faucet but he screamed and scratched so I couldn’t get it all. This is why I haven’t had a pet before - the excrement situation. How do I prevent him from stepping in his poop and how do I thoroughly clean him if he does?

Hello,

I am so sorry you had to deal with this............it's awful. The best way to keep Milo's poop firm, thus event him from getting it on his feet, is to feed grain free dry food.you will find many choices at chewy.com. They deliver free and will return your money for any food he does not like or wiil not eat.

Use a clumping type litter that will actually wipe his feet when he walks on it.

Get a tracking matt he has to step on as he exits the box.

They also sell little sock booties he can wear and are washable..
