Kitten with a leaky butt! Update!

Bunky has severe diarrehea and he can just be sitting still and leaks.  It is so gross!  He is about 2-3 months old.  We give him hard food and no people food.

Oh jeesh! I dont know what to tell you, other than maybe get him to a vet! Is he fully vaccinated? I sure hope he is ok....maybe some cheese...that blocks up my dogs, when they get loose stools.

Give him some tuna/can catfood mixed in rice. Just enough to flavor the rice. That should bind him up some. If not,  dribble a bit of imodium on it but just a touch.

I'd get him to the vet just to be safe.

Oh thanks!  Our vet is cheap thank goodness.  He wants to sit on our laps but we dare not let him.  I even put a towel under him this morning.

Did it and it did the trick!  I can put him back on my lap.

If the problem comes back, make sure his day to day food is 100% grain free.  Cats aren't supposed to eat grain, they are true carnivores.  It can cause some pretty bad digestive problems. 

I'm all for putting cats and dogs on a homemade food diet, but it's too much work for a lot of people.  I have a recipe my vet and I worked out together.  If you can't do that, just make sure you are grain free.
