I sometimes use veterinary Kaopectate. It's not what's on the store shelves, cause they've changed the formula and it's not safe for cats. But the old formulation was - and somehow, thru our vet, we got the "safe" old formulation of Kaopectate. It's worked well for my kitties, for many occasions of nonspecific diarrhea.

Laurie, I will call the vet just to see if there is something else we should be doing. I just had a long talk with BooBoo about the necessity of fighting his hardest to overcome this problem. He was purring all the time. I know this sounds silly but it's up to him too as to how much he wants to put up with. This seems to be one of those bad days and we'll just deal with it.

Lynne, I would also call your vet and let him or her know about the diarrhea. I want to reassure you that we thought both Midas and Isabella would not make it this past year. They are both thriving.
It's hard to see past today's troubles but hope keeps us going.
My best
Laurie

Two weeks Laurie. I picked up some yogurt so I'll try offering him some of that.

Could be the different foods, too. Or stress. Or a combination of factors.
The probiotics or yogurt mentioned might help with this.
I recall that Midas the kitten had diarrhea until we got him off all his meds.
I am sorry to hear BooBoo has this to contend with, too.
How many days go you have to give the doxy?

I'm very sorry, I must have deleted an email about diarrhea and doxycycline. Is there something I can give to BooBoo to help with this side effect. He's only had 4 doses of the stuff and it isn't agreeing with him.
