My cat is 1.5 yrs old male and has had diarrhea the past 2

Customer Question

Customer: cat is 1.5 yrs old male and has had diarrhea the past 2 days. He eats, plays, and otherwise acts normally. We have had a bout with this last month and I took him to the Vet..we checked his stool which came back negative for Girardia and she gave us some bulking food and pro-biotics. He does always sound like he has sniffles, but no nasal discharge or watery eyes. He also has gas.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I just did
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $19) to post your type of question to Cat Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
