Question: My 17 mo. old Maine Coon, Hamilton, has had loose stools for a couple of weeks
now. I wouldn’t describe it as diarrhea
since it doesn’t seem to be any more
frequent than usual–just loose. He
eats Iams Lamb
Rice, weighs approx. 13 pounds. He
has been checked for worms, none found.
I gave him canned pumpkin and plain
yogurt(which he loved) for several days, but it didn’t
seem to make any difference. I’ve had
him for about 6 weeks. I talked with his breeder, who said MCs “just do that
sometimes.” He seems to feel fine, has
PLENTY of energy. Any thoughts,
Absolutely! Your breeder is seeing a very common, but NOT normal, symptom in these young cats with diarrhea (and yes, even without increased frequency, loose stools are considered diarrheic).
I would upgrade his diet and schedule an initial evaluation with a veterinary homeopath. This problem may be strictly dietary, but I’d also strongly recommend having your very young cat fully evaluated (internally).
A vet homeopath can evaluate and treat both physiologic and energetic imbalances.
