Hi, my rescue has had a loose stool since adoption one year ago. She has no teeth and eats pate Natures Variety rabbit. Dr suggested rabbit and grain free. It really doesn't help too much. I sprinkle slippery elm on food. It may help. I use clumping litter but have heard her "squirt". She doesn't go a lot. And is not underweight. I'm curious on your view of foods. Thank you!

Cases of chronic diarrhea with no weight loss are hard.  These cats likely have some form of food allergy.  However, since we often don't know the history of rescue cats, we have no way of knowing if she suffered some type of intestinal infection as a kitten that caused her permanent problems.  Chronic diarrhea can sometimes be helped by supplementing soluble fiber like oak bran (usually 2 tbsp per day) or feeding diets higher in fiber (10-11%)
