2 out of 7 kittens left.... what's going wrong??? - Page 2

post #31 of 40
Thread Starter 
bailey is going on her own... guiness is TRYING to go but couldn't seem to do it even though before today he was doing a wee fine...
this evening he did a small one.... i've increased the amount of water in the mixture to 4 tablespoons per can of ad prescription....
they're going through it pretty quickly right now....
i re-cut the nipple head to have a 45 degree angle and now they are very eager to grab the bottle.....

POOP _ i need some help with this... now when they say it should be firm do they mean firm like how an older cats is? or like toothpaste? it sort of comes out in a long tube is that okay? i'd take a picture but .... that might gross everyone out....

I've seen it from toothpaste consistency to rock hard like an adult. Poop from an orphaned kitten seems to be dicey for a lot of folks, as they are not feeding from a mom. And switching to formula, or changing things around will change the consistency. If you get them regulated on a formula that is working for them, it should be harder than toothpaste at that age.

(toothpaste is a perfect description btw!)

okay. i'l; stick with the present formula of 4 table spoons of water per can and see what happens.

should i add some probiotics(lactobacillus) and if i should... how much?

This is where my knowledge ends - sorry, have no experience with this. Have you talked to the vet about this?

I would add just a pinch of probiotic powder to one meal a day. It can only help. You could also use Bene-Bac, which is a paste you can get from pet stores. It will have dosing instructions for kittens.

Wow, they sure have alot of aliments!

I hope they get better soon, poor things. The felovite may make their stool a little loose, try a lower dose unless the vet said otherwise.

I use Missing Link in all my cats canned food including kittens when they are learning to eat food. When I had some foster kittens in the past, we used Missing Link, vitamin B additives and L Lysine when they had giardia from a week upwards. We also gave sub q fluids.
What is the addictive type of wet food you are using? My cats have always done bad on anything science diet.

never heard of this brand before (use raw but not dehydrated). Wonder if there are veggies or sweet potatoes don't see an ingredient section on their website that could be giving you kitty allergies as well. Mine tried Bravo pre frozen raw for a while and we got loose stools, so now its fresh raw only.
