    Help! My kitten has horrible diarrhea

    Our baby Clark has gone through the same problems. Really smelly runny poo :( have your vet do a fecal test that will detect cryptosporidium. This nasty little parasite takes a lot of work to get rid of. I hope this helps

    Cryptosporidium help!!!

    The vet suggested we go through the 2 wk period of the azithromicin and hopefully it kills the parasite dead! He's confident now that we know what's going on. I wash Clark's water bowl every night and fill with boiled and cooled clean water. He's also getting his claws and in between his toes...

    Cryptosporidium help!!!

    So he is prescribed azithromicin for a 2 week period. He more than likely had this from the breeder and when he came down with a horrible upper respiratory infection......his immune system was so weak that the cryptospiridium parasite took over his intestinal tract. At that point we had only...

    Cryptosporidium help!!!

    Our vet is consulting specialists. They are wonderful. Azithromicin (pardon my spelling) and another antibiotic is recommended. This poor kid :( they did a swab test and had it sent out. We have to boil all of his water and keep his areas squeaky clean

    Clark the cats crazy story

    Well Clark has finished all his meds out except the azithromycin. We are still seeing random diarrhea and we have to actually baby wipe his poor little butt! He is still sneezing out goo and boogers ( not as often as before, but still occurring). About once a day he still does the snort thing to...

    Clark the cats crazy story

    Thanks for that info!!! He is taking lysene in the gel form (viralys). Without even knowing it would help Clark out a bunch, the vet we most recently saw actually prescribed the metronidozol which is good to treat Giardia. So fingers and paws crossed!!
