I took in a stray kitten last week. He's about 6 weeks old. We went to the vet on Monday because he had diarrhea all through last weekend. Vet gave me some anti-diarrhea medicine (3 doses, every 8 hrs) and dewormer, Panacur, once daily for 5 days. Within a few hours of the first dose, there was live and dead worms in his stool. By day 4 (yesterday), his stool was hardening. Aside from a live worm on his chest yesterday, I haven't seen any for 2 days. He's got quite the appetite and eats canned kitten wet food mixed with a few drops of kitten milk and a few dry food pieces. He also loves to play and run and will do it all day if I let him. He .ca scale the scratching post in 2 seconds flat. But, today, after his last dewormer treatment, I noticed his belly looks incredibly big. I can't tell if there's more worms in there or if he's just full from his food. Any ways to tell? He hasn't had any vaccines, as the vet wouldn't give any until the diarrhea stopped. He can go back in 10 days for those.
Here's a picture from his bath this evening. Still no worms seen since Wednesday and hard/normal stool. He's still playing (a lot!) and eating well. But his belly just does not look normal to me. He's going to the vet in 10 days, so I'm hoping it can wait that long.
