Dear Catster reader,
Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.
Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.
Catster magazine, www.catster.com and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.
Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.
Elimination diet was working, now isn't
I have a question about the elimination diet my kitten is on? The kitten had coccidia at 3 months old, was on antibiotics for about a month before it cleared up. Kitten has since had chronically loose stools. I tried pro-pectalin, worked for a little while, then stopped working. The vet now has kitten on elimination diet of Royal Canin v/p. The diet seemed to work very well for almost 4 weeks. Now the kitten is having loose stools again (the kitten is now 7.5 months old). I heard elimination diets last 8 to 12 weeks. Should I keep the kitten on it for another month, even though the loose stool has come back?
At what point do I give up and go back to the vet?
We also tried forti flora before te elimination diet and that didn't help at all.
