Q. Our kittens are supposedly 9 weeks old but seem to shy away from solid food but eat a little solid food but have watery stools is this normal or what
A. Withhold food for 12 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. Served warm or mix in a teaspoon of baby food to stimulate the appetite. Continue feeding until the stool is normal. Transition slowly to a quality canned kitten diet. If the soft stool persists, see your veterinarian. Submit a stool sample to rule out intestinal parasites or bacterial overgrowth.
