Is it safe to give my kitten a probiotic before consulting a vet? His wellness check is soon but I would like a solid poo sooner rather than later.....

Did you try pure pumpkin? I don't know about probiotic so can't advice you on that.

@GMPLAX23 glad to hear that with the new food his poop is solid. Same thing here at my home: only with the expensive food there's solid poop.
If you know there's nothing wrong/no bacteria that causes the soft poo, you could try adding psyllium husk powder in the wet food. You can buy it in nature store (it's originally for humans, to loose weight but also for calm down tummies:).
