Q. My cat has had diarrhea for over a week now, but other than that seems fine: active, eating, etc. He does go outside and catches mice. What do I do?
A. Withhold food for 12-24 hours. Allow small amounts of water or unflavored PediaLyte. Resume feeding a bland diet ( boiled boneless / skinless chicken and plain white rice) in small, frequent amounts. Continue feeding until the stool is normal. If the diarrhea does not resolve, see your veterinarian. Submit a stool sample to your vet to rule out intestinal parasites.
