Re: [Felvtalk] Kitten chronic loose stool

Thanks so much Tracey for all this helpful info. Will look at the site
as soon as I get a break from work.  
I'm picking up more meds tonight, and if that does nothing, then this
will be my backup plan.
Your story about Abbey is very encouraging--congratulations. She's a
lucky little girl that she found you!

Kerry, I have had a little experience with the loose stools you're
talking 
about.
A few months ago I found a kitten (Abbey) who was near death who tested
+. 
She had
uncontrollable diarrhea, I mean it was everywhere and she didn't even
seem 
to
know it was coming out.  Of course she had been starving and eating God 
knows
what.  But I fed her only the best food (Wellness canned) to try to get
her 
healthy.
She was wormed and was on antibiotics for 10 days initially. Gradually
over 
the first
few weeks she got better and better, but she would still 'ooze'
frequently 
outside
the litter box, and inside the box it was still extremely loose like 
babyfood.   So I
started giving her Fortiflora (recommended by the vet) for 30 days. It
did 
help a little
bit, but it was never solid like it should have been.
I have 3 other cats, all -'s and I have fed them a homemade raw
chicken 
and bones diet for the
last 9 months.  I was reluctant to give it to her (Abbey) because I was 
hoping to find her a home
and it would be very unlikely that anyone else would give her that same 
diet, so I didn't
want her system to have to get used to a different diet.  Anyway, after 
about 6 weeks
of dealing with the diarrhea, I started feeding her the raw diet.  It
was 
amazing!  Within a week
it was solid as can be, and she is really the picture of health.
Another cat I took in a year ago (Missy), a stray starving kitten,
also 
had diarrhea issues, but hers
also had blood in it (bright red).  Of course I had her stools checked
and 
they never found anything
wrong, which is terribly frustrating.  You know there has to be
something 
wrong if there is blood in it.
My vets could never find anything though.  She is the reason I started 
researching cat foods.
I took me a long time to make the decision to make my own food and
it 
also took a while to get them switched
over to this new diet, but it was well worth the effort!  They are so 
healthy!  Their coats are
extremely shiny and softer, their temperaments are better, they are much

more active (playing
more than they ever did), and my 16 lb 'fat cat' has lost a little
weight. 
I just couldn't believe
it could make such a difference.  I got my recipe form catinfo.com and 
catnutrition.com.  These are
awesome websites, one is even a veterinarian.
It is 'complete' if you make it right and use the right ingredients and 
supplements. It is not that expensive.
I make 15 pounds of it at a time and freeze it.  Making the food is a
bit 
intimidating at first, but I have it down pat now.
I will never feed dryfood again, or use anything but a high quality
food. It 
does makes all the difference.
Good luck!
Tracey (Indiana)

 Hi all,
 My FeLV foster kitten, Daisy (about 14 weeks old now) has had soft
 stools, and sometimes uncontrollable diarrhea, ever since she was
found
 in the street at 3 weeks.
 When I began fostering her about 5 weeks ago she had been taking meds
 for coccidia for several weeks without improvement. I took her to my
 vet, who has state of the art everything, including feces-testing
 methods, and he found that her coccidia had cleared up (it never
 actually goes away) and what she had was (bad) bacterial growth. He
put
 her on a 3-meds treatment plan that included 5 days Panacure.
 She has control now, but her stool is still baby food consistency.
 My question is---have any of you ever used an exclusive diet of
broiled
 or raw chicken to treat a *kitten's* diarrhea/loose stool?
 I've used it successfully with my former adult FeLV, Snoball, but I'm
 worried about the effects of an incomplete (albeit temporary) diet of
 this kind on a kitten.
 I'd also welcome hearing of any other successful ways that anyone may
 have found in treating kittens' loose stools.
 Thanks!

Kerry, I've used one of Dr. Pitcairn's recipes for diarrhea, quite a  
few years ago - had rice in it, and some other ingredients I dont  
recall.  I used it for Mr. Black Kitty, who was FELV/FIV positive.  IT  
worked really well.  I didn't use it exactly, used canned chicken  
rather than raw, and it still worked well.  After a few weeks, I  
switched to a canned lamb and rice food, and he still did well on it.

Just fyi -

That's an EXCELLENT website.  Nothing straightens out cats and kittens like the 
recipe from catinfo.org.  CRF, LK, cancer, symptomatic FIV, healthy cats, you 
name it, we've had cats on this diet with tremendous success and never once a 
bad result.  You just have to treat the raw meat with respect.And nothing 
beats the entertainment of watching a kitten eat it.  The growling, the sheer 
delight - very funny!

Re: [Felvtalk] Kitten chronic loose stool

2008-10-28 Thread Caroline Kaufmann

My Yoda (non-felv) as a baby had a lot of that intermittent diarrhea as a baby 
(the archives are peppered with my Yoda diarrhea emails!).  I got so 
frustrated- trying everything- and unlike you, I had a stupid doc that just 
said, oh we didn't find anything in the fecal-- and I was like, well, you 
probably won't, so we just have to treat the symptoms!  Ugh, sucked.  Since I 
have done holistic care before I consulted with my holistic vet and she said 
try wrm clear- not sure how it's spelled on the bottle, but it's called worm 
clear.  It's a holistic treatment- natural.  She said it naturally clears 
worms, bacteria and can even work on coccidia and things like that.  She said 
it also just generally helps the gut get back in order- balances out the good 
and bad bacteria.  I used it on him for the 14 day course of treatment (there's 
also directions for a maintenance dose).  The directions are a little funny- 
it talks about adding it to water, or deliverying into the mouth and after 
talking to her about it, I went with the 3 doses a day in the mouth so that I 
was sure he was getting it all.  Comes in a bottle like a liquid eye med (don't 
get them confused!).  It really worked on him honestly.  It was weird b/c I 
couldn't ever get anything diagnosed, other than me thinking that he has a more 
fragile gastro tract b/c of his super rough start in life.  It does act up 
sometimes- like when I switched him from Wellness canned to Eagle Pack canned 
(oh lordy, that was HELL!  For everyone!)-- but I was really impressed with the 
wrm clear that first time I did the 14 day treatment on him.  Nothing else had 
worked!  
 
It's definitely worth a try b/c unlike an actual medication, it won't do any 
harm-- it only helps!  I got some bottles from my holistic vet, but I have also 
seen it online at the pet supply places.  
 
Hope this helps.

My Yoda (non-felv) as a baby had a lot of that intermittent diarrhea as
a baby (the archives are peppered with my Yoda diarrhea emails!).  I got
so frustrated- trying everything- and unlike you, I had a stupid doc
that just said, oh we didn't find anything in the fecal-- and I was
like, well, you probably won't, so we just have to treat the symptoms!
Ugh, sucked.  Since I have done holistic care before I consulted with my
holistic vet and she said try wrm clear- not sure how it's spelled on
the bottle, but it's called worm clear.  It's a holistic treatment-
natural.  She said it naturally clears worms, bacteria and can even work
on coccidia and things like that.  She said it also just generally helps
the gut get back in order- balances out the good and bad bacteria.  I
used it on him for the 14 day course of treatment (there's also
directions for a maintenance dose).  The directions are a little
funny- it talks about adding it to water, or deliverying into the mouth
and!
  after talking to her about it, I went with the 3 doses a day in the
mouth so that I was sure he was getting it all.  Comes in a bottle like
a liquid eye med (don't get them confused!).  It really worked on him
honestly.  It was weird b/c I couldn't ever get anything diagnosed,
other than me thinking that he has a more fragile gastro tract b/c of
his super rough start in life.  It does act up sometimes- like when I
switched him from Wellness canned to Eagle Pack canned (oh lordy, that
was HELL!  For everyone!)-- but I was really impressed with the wrm
clear that first time I did the 14 day treatment on him.  Nothing else
had worked!  
 
It's definitely worth a try b/c unlike an actual medication, it won't do
any harm-- it only helps!  I got some bottles from my holistic vet, but
I have also seen it online at the pet supply places.  
 
Hope this helps.

[Felvtalk] Kitten chronic loose stool   Hi all, My FeLV foster
kitten, Daisy (about 14 weeks old now) has had soft stools, and
sometimes uncontrollable diarrhea, ever since she was found in the
street at 3 weeks. When I began fostering her about 5 weeks ago she had
been taking meds for coccidia for several weeks without improvement. I
took her to my vet, who has state of the art everything, including
feces-testing methods, and he found that her coccidia had cleared up
(it never actually goes away) and what she had was (bad) bacterial
growth. He put her on a 3-meds treatment plan that included 5 days
Panacure.  She has control now, but her stool is still baby food
consistency.  My question is---have any of you ever used an exclusive
diet of broiled or raw chicken to treat a *kitten's* diarrhea/loose
stool?  I've used it successfully !
 with my former adult FeLV, Snoball, but I'm worried about the effects
of an incomplete (albeit temporary) diet of this kind on a kitten. I'd
also welcome hearing of any other successful ways that anyone may have
found in treating kittens' loose stools. Thanks! Kerry M.
