I would keep them on all wet and not switch between dry and wet until the diarrhea clears up. Even if it's the same brand I would do that. t

Mine are June babies and I want to do a more accurate/better job of > monitoring their weight and how much they should be fed. Per my vet, and various websites: They should be 3-4 oz when born, and gain roughly 4 oz per week (1 lb per month). So a rough rule of thumb is 1 lb at 4 weeks, 2 lb at 8 weeks, 3 lb at 12 weeks. http://www.eastbayspca.org/volunteer/FelineManual.pdf In and of itself, small size is not a concern - I have fully grown female cats that weigh 5 lbs. But at some point you should have them vet checked if they are not gaining weight, or definitely if they are losing weight. I find the > instructions for feeding on the backs of cans and dry food to be confusing > and not very helpful....especially if you are mixing wet and dry like me. I personally would prefer to feed nothing but wet, but I can't afford it. I give them wet once a day and free feed dry. Scales - my vet recommended pediatric scales.
