What is a good home treatment for a kitten with diarrhea?


Answer by  Roopa (74)

Get hold of any antidiarrhoeal suspension that is used for children. Just inject 5ml into the mouth of the kitten with the help of a syringe at 6 hours intervals.

Kittens need to have fresh, clean water available along with a diet of dry kitten food. Wet food can also be difficult to digest. Do not ply him with any form of "people" food or milk. Keeping him in a smaller area such as a bathroom or training cage will help calm nerves that could be cause for the diarrhea.

If kitten has been seen by a vet, wormed, and has all it's shots, try feeding tuna or jack mackerel mixed 50/50 with white rice a few days.

Most kittens or cats have diarrhea in response to their diet. If you are feeding the kitten milk, stop immediately. Most cats or kittens cannot handle regular milk, contrary to most beliefs. You may try given a different brand of food or talk to your vet for a recommendation of food.

Feed the cat a bowl of milk and give it some cheddar or american cheese. Plenty of water is good for the cat as well.

the previous comment about giving your kitten milk and cheese is absolutely absurd. if your would like to increase the severity of your poor kittys diarrhea, then thats the thing to do. offer chicken broth and a bland diet, rice w/ ground turkey,with plenty of fresh water. see your vet  add a comment

Kittens with diarrhea are probably due to tapeworms or ringworms, as most kittens are born with them or get them at a young age. A simple pill from your local vet or pet supply store should clear up the problem, just make sure to clean their litter box after.

Feed the kitten a bland diet of rice and cooked meat. Sometimes a little bit of Kaopectate can help. Keep water available and if it persists, see a vet.
