My vet says that a/d can make the diarrhea worse due to the high fat
content.  You might try some but go easy and see if it does make the
diarrhea worse?

We have two combo negative boys that are about the size of 6 month old
kittens, and they were feral when we rescued them at 4 weeks.  They are
super super healthy, wonderful coats, not thin at all, just small.  I think
cats just come in different sizes.  Our most recent rescue I thought to be
about 6 months, but the vet says a year.

Did he recently come from a shelter?  Shelters are the worst for spreading
URI (upper respiratory infection).   We have also had it happen that a cat
will develop uri from the stress of moving households.
