Well I found this cat on my doorstep a couple of weeks ago and after about 4 days of it acting sick I took it to the vet and they said she had hookworms and game me some wormer, an antibiotic and a anti-diarrheal medicine. Well the day after I gave her the wormer she started acting very lethargic, she went and stayed under my car all day long and she wouldnt eat or drink so I took her back to the vet and they said she was dehydrated and that they needed to keep her. They ended up keeping her for 4 days/3nights and I just go her back yesterday. She still has diarrhea though. WHile she was at the vet they gave her some saline and 2 shots a day (Gentocin and Penicillin), I THINK i heard him say something abouta bowel infection over the phone. Well anyways, she still has the diarrhea, she is acting better, but I am just wondering if this is somethign that will go away soon? How long does it take a cat to recover from hookworms? I am still given her the antibiotic twice a day and the diarrhea medicine 3 times a day and on monday I have to give her another dose of the wormer.
