Great news that he made it through the night! YEAH!! I am so happy.
maybe he is constipated? just guessing now since he has been having diarrhea.
My one kit, aptly named Korki, had real trouble with constipation with KMR.
To the point where we had to literally pull the poo out.
She exhibited similar attempts at making poo but couldnt. she would hunch all over and cry bloody murder but would never go.
poor little girl screamed the whole time, but that poo we pulled out of her was almost as long as she was at 10 days old. she felt MUCH better after that. We had this issue with KMR no matter the dilution with this one cat. We switched to VET brand and stayed with that with no issues. it seemed to disolve better and be less platey or chalky.
Can you notice any fecal matter around his anus at all? Or notice that his sphincter is swollen or protruding? We used cotton balls dampened with warm water to stimulate his anus and then gently stroking his lower abdomen with firm but gentle pressure toward his rear. As soon as we saw some kind of fecal matter, we gently tugged on it to remove it from her. It was very hard and white. We were very gentle and took our time and never pulled with great force. we had to be patient as the poor little one screamed the whole time. as you know, its scary to hear your baby cry so loud.
Mineral oil and pedalyte did help some but we decided to give up KMR after that.
I know all that sounds gross, but i am sure by now you are willing do whatever it takes. It is really not that nasy you just have to be gentle and patient.
Hang in there.
Sleep when you can, i hope you like coffee
