I took Olaf to the vet on September 4 because he was having diarrhea. They ran all kinds of tests and couldn't tell me what was wrong. Fecal test-normal. Feline Leukemia-negative. CBC-normal. They sent him home with Metronidazole, Proviable, Cerenia, and Rebound. He finished all those. The diarrhea finally cleared and he then had a really bad flare up of his FVR. He is now on Lysine to help with that. That finally got better. Now every couple of days he will have a loose stool and yesterday his third eyelid started showing in both eyes periodically. He is still taking Proviable DC because I was worried about his GI system after the Metronidazole. I honestly think the diarrhea is food related. I had changed him from kitten food to adult food not too long before the diarrhea initially started. I asked the vet about this and they said since he was halfway through his second bag that it probably wasn't the food. He is super picky on his food. Iams dry is the only thing he will eat. I have tried every canned food there is since I got him. Expensive food, cheap food. He tries to cover them all like poop. I have tried boiling him chicken, giving him tuna, shrimp, and steak. He is convinced I am trying to poison him with those foods. I guess because initially he was a shelter kitty. I had tried many different dry foods before he decided on Iams. I am at my wits end. I love this boy more than myself and I only want the best for him. I worry constantly about his health now. So much so that it is affecting mine. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
