How old are your bottle babies and how often are you feeding them?
Babies are 4 weeks today...and feeding schedule varies (unfortunately). They seem to be okay for approx. 5-6 hours but if I am close-by their cage area, their little "spidey" senses
seem to kick-in and they scream to be fed.Additionally, I think it needs to be said that young kittens still nursing as their sole form of nutrition normally do not have formed poop ... at least not like we ~think~ it should be. It is normally soft and sometimes can resemble diarrhea.
I definitely get it...these 4 are foster babies...and make 169 fosters since last April...definitely get it about the unformed poop and the soft texture. This may simply be diarrhea from over eating, diarrhea from the goat milk or a good ole' case of the dreaded
Coccidia.I still like and recommend Goat's milk - but if you can get Pro Biolac, I would strongly suggest you give that a try
Have also heard about Pro Biolac but never tried it myself. Would love to continue using Goat's milk which I do feel is superior.
I suppose my real question should be, do you think because I have added supplements to the goat's milk, that the supplements may be the culprit of the diarrhea and not simply the goat's milk on its own? According to mfg. site, I have added egg yolk, yogurt, karo syrup and on my own, have added, colostrum, lactoferrin, taurine & a good probiotic.
