Answer by Kate
hi well it may be that your cat is allergic to the flea collar, my cat was and so we used the spot on once a month treatment ot protect her from fleas and worms.

I wouldn't necessarily say that the diarrhoea is connected it may just be coincidence. Diarrhoea can be caused by many things, most which will clear up after a day or so.

i have a web page about cat diarrhoea etc which you may find of interest. here


If the problem persists or gets worse or if other symptoms appear then i would recommend that you take your cat to a vet as soon as possible.

best wishes Kate
