Kitten with upset tummy

(6 Posts)

Our kitten is 14 weeks old. Very happy (mad as a hatter) and settled. Stared with runny stools on Thursday night. We took him to the vet on Friday who checked his temperature (all fine) and sent us packing with pouches of Royal Canin Gastro food for him.
He’s eating happily (the pouches and boiled chicken) drinking and acting normally but he is still VERY runny. How long until we should take him back? He seems great but I worry about his toileting.
Thanks for any advice

Mine were given pro kolin paste when they had a runny tummy. Check the ingredients on the food as wheat/grains can cause diarrhoea in some cats

Ring the vet and ask if you need to take him back. Wishing him a speedy recovery.

Plain cooked chicken is usually the best for upset cat tummies.

Has he been dewormed?

We’ve been giving him plain chicken @viccat, we’ll continue to do so.
He has been dewormed. He had his second set of vaccinations on Monday and was also microchipped.
I phoned the vet today; they said to keep an eye on him until Thursday. Since coming home tonight go him, he’s still very liquid but eating and drinking. I’m very worried about him but he’s still being bonkers!

I had a cat who always had the runs. Vet said there was actually nothing wrong with him but some cats are prone to it. You just normally don't know because cats normally go to the toilet outside.

So she may well be fine with nothing to worry about, but we all know that's far easier said than done.
