Diarrhea in Cats
Natural Remedies for Cats with Diarrhea
"My cat has diarrhea! Is there something natural that can make it stop?
Your cat's diarrhea or mushy stool can be easily managed through diet and nutrition. Here are some tips:
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. When your cat has diarrhea, give 2-3 times the normal dosage of Probiotic Miracle® or MiracleZyme® combo chews, twice per day. This will help increase gut activity and regulate your cat's stool elimination.
WHAT IS IT?
Diarrhea in cats is the passage of loose, unformed stools. The stools don't always have to be watery, even loose stool is considered on the spectrum of diarrhea. 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.
CAUSES OF CAT DIARRHEA
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.
NATURAL REMEDIES TO STOP DIARRHEA IN CATS
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.
If your cat is losing weight, has large, gray, and rancid smelling stools more than 2 times per day, it would be wise to also add a digestive enzyme, such as Enzyme Miracle®.
Make sure your cat drinks plenty of water.
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.
