Same here, none of mine have chronic diarrhea.  However, I had a  
double positive (FELV,FIV) who had chronic diarrhea - I stabilized him  
on home made food, then commercial lamb food.  He live another year or  
so after he came to me.

Debbie and Heather,
   Thanks for the reply. Maggie has had several(5-6)fecals done and  
one sent away to a lab as a feline diarrhea panel which cost $160  
and checked for fungus, parasites, etc. All of which were normal.
   She has diarrhea more than she doesn't anymore. She was born in  
June and began having FELV symptoms in August. The diarrhea has  
been off and on since then. Do you know is the Fortiflora something  
you need to get at the vets or can I find it elsewhere?

  My problem is that Maggie goes through boughts of

 $40 plus shipping a month.

2009-04-03 Thread Maria Ianiro
My cat had similar issues when we first got him.  Get a fecal exam
done. Bernie had worms when we found out he was felv+, after he was on
meds for that, his diarrhea was better but not totally gone.  We did
interferon and prescription canned food.  That helped.  I am now back
on dry food, but I still do interferon once a day.  He rarely has
diarrhea now, but it took a good 3 months to get him back to normal.
Diarrhea is a chronic symptom of felv, so its possible he will have it
every now and then.

You can get it on the internetyou can also get Fast Track and/or  
other probiotics.  At least one person mentioned yogurt--look for  
active cultures.  Canned pumpkin, metimuscil (unflavored) and psyllium  
have helped my guys and girls, both those who have left and the  
kittens who are here.  I know adding fiber seems counter productive  
but it really works.

 anyway. Seems like the diarrhea has been worse since she got on it and it is
 $40 plus shipping a month.
  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I hate seeing her
 miserable.
  Thanks,

Pumpkin, not the pie filling but plain canned pumpkin, may help.  It  
helps when the kittens have problems.

First off, I'd like to thank you for keeping this little one  
despite all of
your other demands.  Then, has your vet done any fecal testing?   
Maggie

could possibly only need some antibiotic or antiparasitic...

Other than that, the wonderful people here will tell you to feed  
her a good
quality diet and keep her life as stress free as possible.  Your  
kitten
could conceiveably live a good, long life.  Best of luck to you and  
your

family.

I am sure you have covered this a thousand times but I haven't  
been on
here all that long and am very far behind on reading the emails. I  
have a

newborn and work and times get hectic, sorry.
We adopted a kitten that after a neg test later turned out to be  
pos. We
love her so we are keeping her. The clinics around us usually  
recommend
euthanasia and don't have a ton of experience treating pos cats. We  
have a

neg cat 12 years old as well.
My problem is that Maggie goes through boughts of what I call  
horribly
smelly Pancake batter poops. They are very watery and smell very  
foul.
During these times she acts as though she is not feeling well ( I  
wouldn't
either if that came out of my bottom). I would like to know what  
stuff seems
to work best and what stuff to avoid. I asked my vet about  
interferon to
build immune, she didn't seem very knowledgeable about it but  
prescribed it
anyway. Seems like the diarrhea has been worse since she got on it  
and it is

$40 plus shipping a month.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I hate seeing her

miserable.

Thanks,
Tanya

I have had pretty good success with yogurt, I have a new kitten (adoption 
failure, long story) that had very loose stool, I give him about a teaspoon of 
plain all natural yogurt daily.  He loves it and his stools are almost 
perfect.  I stopped giving it to him for a few days and the loose stools came 
back, firmed up right after I started him on it again.  
 
good luck, and thanks for loving this little one!
 
Laura
