Excess Gas

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
OK I know it sounds bad but my two kittens have bad gas... is this normal for kittens because they have sensitive tummies, or could it be the food? What can I do for it. I feed them science diet kitten dry food, and they get fancy feast wet food ( they hate the kitten wet food) and they are not getting any seafood all beef and chicken and turkey... thanks for the advice a head of time...

chloe did as a kitten and i had to find a dry food that agreed with her. science diet didnt agree with her; i ended up feeding her purina or iams before they changed it. she wont eat it now. youll get just have to see what works for your kitty.
just remember to change the foods gradually while intro'ing the new ones.

heehee i remember when chloe was a baby, she was jet propulsed

Hopefully they will outgrow it as they get older. Meco my cat still has terrible gas lol. I've had her since she was almost 3 weeks old and bottle fed her. You just look at her and she would toot. lol My daughter thought she was like a squid and inked everywhere. I put her on kitten chow (dry) and it seemed to help.

I have been told they will grow out of it! Paddington is the only one of our kittens who is prone to gas. It surprised us so much when we realised where it was coming from. Poor hubby - I had probably been blaming him....

First of all, rule out worms, then work on the food issue.

oh i knew it was coming from chloe. she would only do it when she jumped -- thats why we referred to her as jet propelled and she was LOUD! LOL!!!

we always thought she was proud of herself, actually hahahaha she would get right in your face, esp if your were laying on the couch or something and
ZOOOOOMMMM

I wonder if your kittens gas is as bad as my kittens was, oh the horror of it! We tried several kitten foods, and SD made it the least bad, but still bad. She eventually stopped having gas altogether when she turned a year old and I started her on adult cat food (was adult Sd, now eating Wellness). It must be the fatty kiten food, so just hold on till they are adults and can eat non gassy adult food

Oh dear Lord. Forrest's gas was TERRIBLE until he was about 8 months old. It was embarrassing when company was over. They'd look at the cute little kitten and pick him up. Picking him up would always make him exude gas something terrible. When they'd hold him away from them and wince I knew exactly what it was. It was especially bad when he was teething.

chloes gas did go away when she was about a year old, actually

but now that patchy is getting older, i have to deal with the "i dont care, im old" gas! she likes to sit on the chair right by my head and let them rip or sleep with her butt on my pillow and give me dirty looks like IM the one the did it. and if i actually do, she huffs and glares at me even tho it IS my room LOL sometimes she glares at me when its her

Mobitz favorite thing to do is a "duch oven"! He gets under the covers purring and rubbng and then he rips one and runs! They linger! As he gets older it is less and less but he can still clear a room!

Nimitz's gas use to be so bad that my husband nicknamed him Chemical Ali. Luckily...once we got him on Cal Nat and he got alittle bit older it seems to have improved in a big way. He could also clear a room. So small...yet so toxic.
