Q. My cat has diareia whar med to give

Answered By

A. Diarrhea can be caused by a number of things, so finding the underlying causes rather than just treating it is best. Food allergies, internal parasites and illness can all cause diarrhea to occur. You can offer a meal of boiled chicken to try and settle the stomach, however if symptoms continue for more than a day it is best to bring your cat and a sample of stool to the vet to check for the most common causes (and get treatment) of diarrhea.
