Natural Diarreha fixes?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Jordan has loose stool again. After spending $700 on Maggie last week I'm not about to run to the vets office without trying a couple things at home first. Saturday I fed him a differnt food than normal and the problem started on Sunday so I'm thinking that may be the problem. I will take him to the vet if this doesn't clear up in a couple days or if he develops a fever, but I'm just curious about natural remedies for diarreha?

I have this same problem I switched the kitties food to Nutro and Stuart will get loose stool now and then and I'm sure it's from the food. I wouldn't mind some more suggustions, so I'm bumping this up in hopes other post!

Thanks, I'm just hoping that something will work, not just for my pocket book, but also for his poor liver & kidneys. I worry about all the medication he has taken affecting his organs. It's strange because he was 100% fine on Saturday, was even droping toys at my feet for me to throw for him. Since his last roud of diarreha and treatment with Flagyl, he has been better than I have seen him in a year. I believe he has even put some weight back on, so you can understand why I want him to get better.

Active culture yogurt has been suggested to me.

The good bacteria are great but the amount in yogurt is miniscule and not likely to help much

a better choice would be a pet probiotic, something along the lines of bene-bac.

I've had cats with the same problem. My vet gave me a probiotic called Jarro-Dophilus+FOS. I will almost gurantee you the stuff will work. I got a 1 year old cat January 17th and she has been on at least 10 different kinds of canned food since I got her. She has had no tummy problems at all and her caretaker told me she did when switching foods in the past. Try the Jarro or Bene-bac. It sounds like she needs a probiotic. You have absolutely nothing to lose. It won't hurt her.

Boiled chicken with rice also works very well.

Thank you all so much. I will defininately keep those things in mind. I started with the good old with hold food for at least 12 hours & then feed a bland diet. So all I gave him last night was a jar of Chicken baby food. This morning no loose stool in the litter boxes & he was starving. So hopefully that will be the end of that. I'm just glad it wasn't another round of what ever parasite they all just had.
