My cat has a urinary infection. He was given antibiotics. Since then he has had diarrhea. Does any body know why and how long it will last. My bank account is wiped. So the vet is done.:^:

    Clavamox is known to give some cats diarrhea and/or vomiting. Your vet should switch antibiotics for you without having to go back in for an exam. You can try offering canned pureed pumpkin. Make sure there are no added spices. Give about 1 tsp. twice a day until symptoms are resolved. Stop once the stool becomes normal as the pumpkin can cause constipation. You really should get a different course of antibiotics though. Call your vet and have them RX something else.

    Yes, Clavamox can definitely give cats diarrhea. Not to worry though as the vet can just switch antibiotics for your cat:D
