    2 months in on the new diet…no change ugh.

    back again, begging for a solution that just won’t seem to come!!!! I took more recommendations back in September for a diet change and ended up trying the “taste of the wild Rocky Mountain” dry food to no avail as usual ugh. I hate to keep complaining but I am completely over my wits end with...

    New pets, concerning stool all week

    I adopted Glomptar and Fuzzbutt about 10 days ago. They're both 4 years old, and a healthy weight. Glomptar is an adventurous eater, and tries to stick anything in his mouth that might be food. And I mean anything! He saw me taking my medications, and tried to eat the pill box. The first...

    15 weeks old, diarrhea and vomit

    Hello! First post and, unfortunately, not for the best reasons. I took my 15 week old neutered male baby home 1.5 weeks ago. He is around 4.5lbs and has been adjusting just wonderfully! I took him to his first vet visit 3 days ago for a check-up and was told he is in great health. His breeder...

    8 month old sphynx kitten having bloody diarrhea and other health problems! HELP!

    I got my baby boy Beerus over 4 months ago and ever since then he's been having medical issues. First it was an upper respiratory infection, did a culture and found he had bordetella and mycoplasma. He had to be on antibiotics for over a month as the mycoplasma is very difficult to get rid of...

    Update…unhappy ):

    Hello again all! I promised a little update about how my boy handles his new diet and shampoo. Well…I’m not sure if it is the right fix unfortunately. Ugh. I did a slow transition of his dry food (mixing small percentages over a week long period until fully transitioned over to the new) so now...

    Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) - Help

    Hi guys! My first post here! I have Romeo for about 8 months and since I got him we've noticed a runny poo and diarrhea (and a lot of farts lol). No blood. We thought it was from the antibiotics from the castration or from his food changes, since the previous owner said his poo was normal...

    Diarrhea help?

    Baby started having diarrhea yesterday ;n; sticky and smelly, too - and causing him to whinge a bit when he needs to go (not loudly or for long, but clearly there's discomfort). His poops were great his first week here and honestly didn't notice a smell. Then suddenly he was starting to get...

    Pooped out… and all that goes with it

    Hi all. Going to post a not so uncommon thread on IBS or stomach issues that cause diarrhea/soupy poo and ask for advice. Inherited a 6month old Sphinx kitten after my mom passed. She had awful ear mites and an infection in her ears. But otherwise healthy so I thought. Over time I noticed...

    New kitten having off and on again diarrhea

    Hi everyone! I got my little furless guy about three weeks ago (at 15 weeks old) from a breeder. I've been feeding him the Royal Canin kitten dry and wet food as that is what the breeder had him on. After the first day or two home he started having really liquid poops, however I assumed it had...

    Very concerned for my cat, any advice?

    Firstly, we are going to the vet on Monday. This will be her third visit in the past few months. A few months ago I noticed Khaleesi, our 8 year old female sphynx, was not eating her wet food as she normally does. She only gets it a few times a week and she screams and cries every time I go in...

    Sudden vomiting and soft stool

    Hi guys! I thought I would share a recent story of mine. Maybe it could help and others could learn from it too. So 1 and a half week ago, at about 3 AM, I woke up because I heard funny noises. My boy was smacking his lips and then cried out in pain. A sec later, his tummy went up and down...

    6 Month Kitten Diarrhea for 3 weeks.

    I'll try to keep this short. My sphynx cat was raised on raw by his breeder, after seeing multiple vets which suggested I change to a wet/kibble food mix I did. I tried to implement slowly but after a day he stopped eating the raw (he ate around it) and only would eat the new wet/kibble food...

    New here, need help!

    So about 3 weeks ago I adopted a 2.5 yo male sphynx from a breeder in my hometown. She explained that the other males in her home weren’t being very mice to him and she just wanted him to go to a good home. Me- knowing NOTHING about this breed, but always wanting one- jumped at the opportunity...

    Anyone have suggestions/advice for a Sphynx who all of a sudden has loose stool? My Nooshie has had loose stool for awhile now. I brought him to the vet and they gave flagyl and tested his stool for parasites which was negative. I started him on FortiFlora about 3 weeks ago. He eats Stella and...

    Chronic soft poop: dry food suggestions?

    Roquefort (the younger of my two cats) has had soft poop more or less since we got him. It's not watery but it's just always super soft and smelly. He eats fine and we've had a fecal test and parasite tests done and the vet says he's perfectly healthy and probably just has a sensitive stomach...
