This is about my 11 month old male Marley who keeps getting diarrhea. The first time we took him to the vet, he didn't have any parasites so the vet gave us some pills to give him. We had also started giving him a different kind of food so we went back to the old one. For whatever reason the diarrhea went away. A few weeks ago he had it again, this time he started getting it on a Friday evening so we got him some over the counter cat diarrhea medicine and again it went away. Now he has it again, strangly enough on a Friday evening. I won't be able to take him to the vet until Monday the earliest. I started giving him the over the counter stuff again so hopefully this will at least stop the diarrhea until we can take him to the vet. I was wondering if anyone has had any similar experiences. He is in perfect health otherwise. He is very active, has a great appetite, and drinks plenty of water. He also has no signs of dehidration. Everything else about him is perfectly normal except that he keeps getting diarrhea. There have been no changes in his diet (He eats Purina Complete Care Dry food, and a can of Iams wet kitten food about once a week). I also gave them caned tuna as a treat over the holidays but the last time he had that was on Monday and the diarrhea didn't start again until tonight. I also have a 23 month old female who has never had diarrhea. Does anyone know what could be causing this. I read that it may be overfeeding, they get a bowl full of food in the morning and one in the evening, is that too much? Any information anyone could give me would be great.
