Diarrhea in cats is the passage of loose, unformed stools. Diarrhea is usually accompanied with an increase of volume of the stool and an increase in the number of bowel movements. Feline diarrhea can be distressing and frustrating for cat owners, and especially inconvenient.
A common cause of diarrhea in cats can be caused by poor diets which cause food intolerances. Foods that some cats seem unable to tolerate can include beef, pork, chicken, fish, eggs, spices, corn, wheat, soy, gravies, salts, spices, fats, and some commercial cat foods.
Some medications (most antibiotics), can also cause cat diarrhea.
How Do I Stop Cat Diarrhea?
- 1. Probiotics
Generally speaking, the main therapy for cat diarrhea would be to give your cat probiotics such as Probiotic Miracle, which will generally improve food intolerances and other causes of cat diarrhea such as lack of bile, or infection.
- 2. Enzymes (optional)
Look for the following signs where it would be wise to also add a digestive enzyme, such as Enzyme Miracle®:
- Cat is losing weight
- Cat's stools are large and gray in appearance
- Stools are rancid or foul smelling
- Cat passes three or four large stools in a day
- 3. Water
Make sure your cat drinks plenty of water.
- 4. Low fat diet
Consider a diet that is low in fat for a period, and parcel the food out in 3 meals for the first two days before switching back to the regular diet.

Natural Products for Cat Diarrhea
When your cat has diarrhea, it is a sign that there is a lack of balance in the gut. For this reason, we recommend therapeutic doses of probiotics to restore your cat's natural balance of friendly flora.
1. Probiotic Miracle®
Give 2-3 times the recommended dosage of Probiotic Miracle® for 1 week or until better health appears, then resume normal dosage as a wellness program.
Probiotics help to support your cat's immune system and healthy digestion. Probiotic Miracle® is guaranteed to be able to pass through the hostile environment of your cat's stomach to seed in the intestine. This benefits your cat against diarrhea and future occurrences of diarrhea.
2. Enzyme Miracle®
If your cat is suffering from weight loss, has three or four large stools in a day, or if your cat's stools are large and gray in appearance, then your cat will benefit from an enyzme supplement.
We recommend Enzyme Miracle® for best results. Add 1 scoop (approx 1/2 tsp) of Enzyme Miracle for evey cup of food you feed your cat.
