Mary Christine, I don't agree with everything Susan has said or the way
she has said it, but in this case 
she has no more overstepped the bounds than anyone else who answers a
question by saying "you should 
try immunoregulin" or "sounds like anemia".  Obviously Caroline can't
print off Susan's e-mail and run to a
pharmacy with it, so she's not "prescribing."

        Hi Caroline,
        Have the little kittens had a fecal yet?
        If not, I recommend getting one performed. 
        Coccidia, Giardia & spirokettes(?) are all possibilities.
        Sometimes when you first get kittens, they can have normal
poops,even w/one
        of the above problems or all of them,however, the diarrhea can
start days 
        even weeks later.
        Coccidia would need Albon,make sure that the doasge is correct
for their
        weight due to it being a sulfur based drug and it can cause
liver problems.
        However, the first dosage will need to be *double* ,if that
makes sense. 
        Ask your vet for some Hills' moist w/d to help w/ the diarrhea,
which will
        help form stools plus they still will get *some* the necessary
moisture that
        they need.
        You also might want togive them a bit of Pedialyte,this will
give them the 
        necessary electrolytes that they are losing.
        Kittens can crash very easily due to dehydration.
        Let me knowif you have any questions, goodl luck!

        Hi Caroline,
        They may still be reacting to the antibiotics/amoxi.  It tends
to wipe out
        the good gut bacteria with the baddies.  Try adding some
probiotics to
        their food, or maybe try some plain yogurt with live cultures to
        rebuild the good gut bacteria.
