Kitten diharrhea/leakage wont go away
by Sarah Hileman
We just adopted a 9 week old kitten about a month ago and ever since we got him he had really bad diharrhea and he leaked out poo and mucusy liquid. We went to the vet twice and he has tried 4 different types of medicine. He was de wormed and even got a medication for coccidia. But nothing helped. It actually made it worse.He leaks all the time. we have to keep him in a room and cover the floor and bed with towels and have to replace them at least twice a day. Sometimes if we pick him up the mucus or poo pour out of his butt like a fountain. Whats happening?

well its strange that the vet has been unable to help your kitten. This problem can be quite common in kittens as their tummies can be very fragile. It may be a good idea to give your cats digestive system a rest for a few days to see if that helps settle it down and then to feed only very plain food in small amounts for the following few days to see if the tummy can cope. I have a page aboutCat Diarrhea here
which will give you more information.
