Have you tried kaopectate? Ask Dr. first, but it used to be recommended. Also try white rice made with chicken broth. Try each one at a time so you'll know what works. Pumpkin tends to help as well. Just mix with wet food. tonya Caroline Kaufmann [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote: .hmmessage

You know - has he been treated for coccidia? A lot of times my vet will treat for coccidia even if nothing shows up on the fecal, because it is so hard to detect. Metronidazole doesn't cure coccidia...Albon or there is a new drug that does it... On Dec 19, 2007 2:32 PM, Caroline Kaufmann [EMAIL

No. I didn't want to give him anything that he didn't need. But I do have access to Albon. Incidentally, one of the other fosters told me on Sat.- when I was complaining about Yoda's on going saga- that some of her cats- or a litter that was recently adopted, not sure which, just tested

Caroline I've been battling diarrhea for months. It began as giardia and we used everything beginning with Panacur on down and nothing has worked. We used a remedy, Thullium met which worked for several months but it is back again and we in the same state that you are. Nina has a cat (Gypsy)

Okay, thanks. We are not desperate yet, but it is definitely affecting my ability to adopt him. He's getting bigger and bigger every day and he's now a juvenile and past that adorable teeny kitten stage that all the people seem to want. And I sometimes hold off taking him to cat adoption
