Watch them for Panleuk symptoms: depression, hanging head (most of the time, not just over the food/water bowl), loose/watery stools, vomitting, low energy. If they are throwing up just bile, then they are just hungry. Can you syringe some baby food into them to get them started eating again?

Thanks Kathryn Christiane. Both kittens just had diarrhea, no blood in the stool no blood in the vomit. She is feeding them wet food, Friskies/wet and Meow Mix/wet. I have tried to get the kittens to eat Before Grain wet food, but they will not eat it. The kittens will lap up a little water,

I think it's generally agreed upon that kittens should get wet food, not dry. Did you try feeding the wet food you'd been giving them before they shut down? I'm an evangelist against all dry, no matter how ``healthy,'' as cats are desert animals and don't have good thirst mechanisms to make

Diarrhea control gel by van beek clears it right up if its bacterial. I had a lot of cats years ago that had been dumped on me and I could not catch them to vaccinate. Pretty soon they all started dying, and it was panleuk. I had a bottle of excenel that I had used on my Pygmy goat for

Wonder how it worked on the virus, or does it work on viruses, too? Last I talked to the vets that treated my kittens (most died), they wouldn't use ``controversial'' Tamiflu. My friend's vet saved her litter that way. On Sun, Nov 4, 2012 at 1:39 PM, Marcia marciabmar...@gmail.com wrote:

Anytime you change food, you should mix the old the new for a few days as they often get diarrhea. From: Felvtalk [mailto:felvtalk-boun...@felineleukemia.org] On Behalf Of Martha Walton Sent: Sunday, November 04, 2012 5:20 PM To: felvtalk@felineleukemia.org Subject: Re: [Felvtalk] Kitten

Yes...that is what a vet told me and I was shocked! But actually about 20 ago I had a kitten that had it and iused amoxicillin and he finally came out of it. I also used raw blood from calf liver mixed with canned food and syringes it. He ended up being very unbalanced from it because it

It didn't work on the virus per say, but the fast growing bacteria in their gut. I'm wondering if it could be a water change that is making them sick? Sent from my iPhone On Nov 4, 2012, at 4:51 PM, Kathryn Hargreaves khargrea...@gmail.com wrote: Wonder how it worked on the virus, or does it
