    Hi Angel,

    I’m sorry your wee boy has diarrhea. KMR liquid can cause diarrhea and the concentrate can cause constipation. We recommend Goats’ milk for kittens. It has the minerals, vitamins and probiotics a kitten needs to balance his insides.

    It has been found that pumpkin or sweet potato is usually well tolerated and digestible even in pets suffering with diarrhea. Mix together equal parts turkey and pumpkin and give your cat smaller portions frequently throughout the day until the diarrhea resolves. If the diarrhea does not resolve in the first two to three days on a bland diet, consult your veterinarian if you haven’t already.

    An alternative to this is a bland diet of ground beef and rice. While this is somewhat fat-free, even the leanest ground beef is higher in fat than turkey. Rice is indeed bland and contains fiber, but it is a complex carbohydrate that tends to ferment in your cat’s intestine. This can make your kitten gassy, and you might see relatively undigested rice in your kitten’s poop.

    Since he’s gone more than a day with diarrhea, you need to address the dehydration. Give him Pedilyte to improve his electrons balance. You need to call a vet and see if thee OTC meds that are safe.
