Concerned about 2 week old kitten...

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I have noticed all day yesturday and still this morning that one the all grey kitties (a girl) is always wet down there by her wee-wee.
I mean wet. Her little legs even. I even noticed an itty bitty yellow-like discharge from her little wee-wee.

I called the vet but they are closed all weekend until Tuesday. They do take emergencys.
Is that something I should consider?

She eats great. Is starting to play (she is only 2 weeks old tomorrow) and seems otherwise happy. I would never even have thought something was wrong but its always wet down there!!
Someone please let me know something!!

Maybe she has an infection. Can you call the ER vet to discuss it?

Okay I had to leave a message.
So I left one describing to them what is going on with her.
I hope they dont take long to call me back.

I will let you know.. thanks so much for advice and time.

If I had to guess (and of course, that is exactly what I am doing), Mom cat might have been a little rough in the butt duty department and baby may have a little infection. It should be relatively easy to clear up with a course of antibiotics and careful cleaning.

Okay ... I was not home when the vet called back b/c Laynee (my oldest daughter) fell off of the hammock and hurt her head. I took her to the emergency room. She is ok though.

Well he left a message saying exactly what GAYEF wrote me.
Thanks.

Oh, good. That sounds very treatable. Will the vet let you pick up some medication, and have her seen on Tuesday? That way she doesn't have to wait to start the antibiotic.

Well he mentioned in the message that he remembered that I had LILO and GARFIELD on ALBON oral and he said if I had any of that left just to give her that. But I dont. I called back to let him know that I dont have any left but I am still waiting for him to call back.

Just talked to the vet and he said that I can see him in the morning or if for some reason he has to got to the office today ... he will call me and he will leave it out for me to pick it up. He is going to prescribe her some Ammoxocilan (or however it is spelled). I will keep everyone posted on how she is doing.
Thanks

Awwww, thank you!!!

I have great news. The vet called me from his office (he ended uo having to do something there today) and said he was on his way out but he would leave her medicine for me in a bag behind their airconditioning outside.
So I went and got it.
Sure hope this helps her.

I have to go out of town for a few days. So I have to teach David
(my hubby) how to give her medicine. LOL

Yes, he is the one that claims he hates cats but has been caught about a zillion times loving on my babies and never has a good excuse as to why he was loving on them....

It may cause her to have diarrhea- sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't. Just so you know.

Sounds like you have a very understanding vet. If she does get a bit of an i\\upset tummy you could try giving her some plain yoghurt.

It's pretty easy to medicate such a young cat usually. Elle took it without a problem. I just stuck her in between my legs and gave it to her. And yes, she did have diarrhea for a day or two.

If the antibiotic does cause a little case of "poopy butt" towards the end of the dose term, then you can try giving a little ~unflavored~ yogurt but make certain that it states on the label that it has live, active cultures. Some cats are lactose intolerant so it may not work for your kitty but it can be soothing to the digestive system for others.
