He's grabbing the bottle and scratching and biting the nipple, can't get the food in fast enough. I've added kitten wet food to the formula . He's eating more and less often. And uses his litter box. He had loose stool yesterday and hasn't gone yet for today. I did drop off a stool sample at the vet. Waiting for a call back.
Hi fecal test was negative. He went to see the vet and everything checked out except he had a huge amount of mucus diarrhea they did another fecal check for giardia and parasites again and negative. Vet had me go off the kmr and go on goat's milk. Vet thought he would do better on this. I was mixing Fancy Feast kitten pate in the milk. He's been doing well but still loose stool. I stopped the canned food yesterday thinking maybe he was too small to start solid food still loose mucusy and blood which he had on Thursday . Of course it's the weekend and I can't get a hold of the vet today is Sunday it's a little bit more solid didn't see any more blood but he's not eating as well he attacks my fingers and shreds them when he's trying to take the bottle he'll latch on drink a little bit then chew the nipple and then stop. The vet said he's just 4 weeks now he weighed 0.8 lb on Thursday his weight has been steadily increasing by 10 g a day today it appeared that it was a little bit less . I'll definitely call the vet tomorrow . He won't lap it up off of saucer he'll lick a little off my finger but he's very awkward he can't get enough in . Any suggestions from all you experts???
His stool is yellow, not as liquid with no mucus or blood. Could it have been the formula since I switched him to goat's milk and I also stopped putting the food in with the goat's milk he is eating a little bit more today. I also have pre and probiotics powder for cats I'm wondering if I could put a little of that in his milk but I don't know how much
No diarrhea or stool today. He's fighting and shredding my hand when I go to feed. He ate great earlier and the last feeding was a disaster. Didn't get any and fell asleep. He lapped a tiny bit of food off his spoon but not really able to eat . I know he's hungry but he just bites the nipple and scratches and it goes crazy. He sleeps really well at night I don't know if I wake him up in an hour or so and try to feed him again. I would appreciate any suggestions. thank you .
Definitely begin encouraging him to a saucer of milk and a plate of wet food. Feed him from your finger with wet food if need be. He’ll catch on. He should not be flailing and going nuts at feeding time.
He is eating lot, very active. Weight up to 1.1 pounds But no stool since yesterday morning, which was brown and firm. He was running around after a feeding and vomited a little. I'm concerned about him being constipated.
