Kitten got an extra dose of albon by mistake, Diarrhea on

Customer Question

Kitten got an extra dose of albon by mistake
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the kitten?
Customer: Diarrhea on its second day. He is 6 weeks ago rescue and on his 3rd day of albon. We have been giving him a pedilyte type mix to help avoid dehydration
JA: Problems with drinking can be serious. I'm glad you noticed it. The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the kitten's name?
Customer: Itty, and we are in a rural area with no vet access until Monday. He is pretty strong and we foster a lot of kittens we were mostly worried about the extra dose of albon he got by accident. 3 of the kittens Look alike lol
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Monday?
Customer: No, other than the diarrhea he is fine, we are washing him off often and have a vet approved "button powder " we are using to ease chafing.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Don't give it a second thought. I'll double the dose on the first day without harm and so doubling on the 3rd won't be a problem either. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
