I give goat's milk yoghurt as it's more easily digestible than cows milk.
Plain boiled chicken is good until it clears up. Don't add any rice to it.
The paste will be Prokolin. It has good bacteria in it.
Applaws is a good dry food but as far as I am aware it is only complimentary so you can't feed solely that for the long-term.
Raw or wet is far preferable to dry. I'm quite convinced the only reason vets recommend Hills is for the commission they get on sales. I wouldn't feed it to my kitten.
If you want any more information on raw feeding please ask.
If you go for wet, I'd recommend buying from somewhere like Zooplus rather than Supermarkets as the quality of food is so much better. I recommend Lily's Kitchen, Grau and Animonda Carny but there are other good wet brands, I just haven't tried them yet. For adult cats, the Happy Kitty Company sell the brands Macs, Feringa and OmNomNom and these are good too.
Dry Food = Sloppy, stinky poo as kitty tries to expel all the extra fillers and grains it doesn't require. Dry food is also very dehydrating for cats.
Wet Food = Firmer poo, less stinky.
Raw Food = Dry, crumbly poo with very little odour at all.
Thanks Fluffy - I'll get some cloths. I thought the baby wipes would be ok because obv need to be gentle for babies but could see that might also put her off trying to clean herself at all. Funny to read your description of your cat - thats exactly what she does. has a quick lick of a paw and then looks at me very proudly as though she has done something amazing ! :-)
I'm really hoping that a combination the boiled chicken, vet paste and plain yoghurt will sort her out.
Im very embarrassed re how long it took me to work how to boil chicken. ie. Boil water, put chicken in, keep boiling
One of my Persians wasn't great at cleaning, cursory lick of the paw and the job was done . I wouldn't use baby wipes because of the chemicals, I'd wipe over with a damp e-cloth and hope she gets the idea.
Mine was fine on applaws dry went off it when I bought the huge bag but check it has taurine in it, it's essential in a cats diet.
A couple of days of soft stools wouldn't concern me after jabs my last hep A did the same to me.
It's a fine boned breed so they do look all fragile and the females are smaller than the males, our feisty female was tiny but could hold her own through sheer ferocity.
Meant to add - she has been on Hills science kitten dry food as recommended by vet - but ive been reading around and seems that this isnt great for her because of cereal content.
ive just bought some applaws kitten dry food which isnt made with cereal so was planning to slowly add a little bit of this after a couple of days of just the pure boiled chicken. Ive also got some applaws kitten wet food to give her a bit of variety. Although she seems to much prefer the dry food rather than wet food.
(When she came to me she was on whiskas kitten pouches - but wont eat those now )
