Digestive disorders

5.1.1 Acute diarrhea


If this is one its habits, the first question you should probably ask yourself when your cat has diarrhea is: has it been through the trash? A significant number of acute diarrheas are quickly overcome through dietary measures (decrease in food consumption or fast) and you can help your cat overcome this delicate period with supplements such as montmorillonite(?) of activated carbon(?). You should also ensure that your cat drink sufficient amounts of water.

If you have recently changed its diet and your cat has diarrhea, it is possible that its intestinal flora requires an adaptation period. It is recommended that you proceed to a dietary transition over a period of approiximately six days: the first two days, provide it with two-thirds of its old diet mixed in with one-third of the new one, the two following days, mix half and half, and finally, on the last two days, mix in one-third of its old diet with two-thirds of the new one. If you know your cat to have a sensitive digestion(?), you can add activated carbon(?) or pre and probiotics to its food over the course of the dietary transition in order to help it overcome this challenge!

Finally, it is important to monitor its overall state: does it seem more tired, has it lost its appetite, is it vomitting or does it have a fever(?)...? You should also monitor its stool: is it more liquid or only softer? Is there blood? These different symptoms(?) can be signs of a more serious underlying cause. It might be sensible to consult your veterinarian, especially if measures previously mentioned were unsuccesful.
