Q. My cat seems to have had diarrhea . She is crying and there is cat poo everywhere . What should I do ?
A. Withhold food for 12-24 hours. Allow small amounts of water or unflavored PediaLyte. Resume feeding a bland diet (1:1 ratio of plain boiled boneless chicken and plain white rice). Feed in small, frequent amounts waiting at least one hour between feedings. Continue feeding until the stool is normal. Transition slowly to the regular diet. If the diarrhea doesnâ€™t stop, see your veterinarian. Submit a stool sample to rule out intestinal parasites or bacterial overgrowth.
