My 12 week kitten has had diarrhea since thursday,he had his 2nd vaccinations on Wednesday so am guessing this is a reaction.
He's alert,active,eating and drinking but i am a little concerned,anyone have experience of this please.

Little M had a runny bum (I had to wipe him after a poo) when he came to live with us at 12 weeks.

Lots of vet visits, and nothing was wrong - just adjusting to the excitement of a new environment, slow introduction of new food.

Won't harm to bring a (fresh) poo sample into the vets and ask them to analyse it though, to ensure it's not Giardia.

I'd be taking him in (or at the very least phoning the vet for advice). Most Pets at Home have an in-store vets' practice (Vets 4 Pets), who are open 10am - 4pm Sunday if that's any help.

He most likely needs a pro-biotic, (but please, PLEASE don't buy any meds from a pet shop or supermarket. At best, they don't work, at worst they can kill.
