Customer Question
I found a 4...

I found a 4 week old kitten abandoned and I took him and and started feeding him wet food that we already had. He seemed to be doing great and I took him to the vet and they said keep doing what you are doing. Then for next two days he started getting very liquidy stool. Solid half the time and not the other. So today is day 5 on wet cat food and he tossed up all his food he ate today and poop everywhere in his box that we keep him in. I keep it very clean and clean it after every elimination. Poop kitten. I had two different types of cat food cans and I don't know if that's what did it or not. He seems to act fine and is playing normal but scared me a little and wonder if I'm feeding him too much or the wrong food.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if the kitten will be able to digest that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the kitten?

He doesn't seem to be drinking a lot of water. I'm not sure how much kittens drink but he could be drinking at night. I'm just worried he might die if he doesn't keep food or water in his system.

I will use your service again. I was very pleased with the response and the fact that you have a low cost option so that those of us on fixed income can have questions answered. I will also recommend you to others.

KarenJackson Heights, NY

You helped us to come to what we believe is a better next step in Jack's treatment, and hopefully have saved us $800!! Thanks again!

Jack's MomTuscon, AZ

The vet said that the information and my following it will be what made the difference. Thanks again for being so very helpful.

TracyGrayson, LA

My oldest male cat had a seizure this evening. This site was the first place I could think of to go after the seizure had passed. Dr. Lucy was fantastic and she was spot on!

DebbieUSA

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
