Runny POOP? Getting to the Bottom of Kitten Diarrhea

Kittens Video Information:

If there’s one issue that seems to effect all kittens at one time or another, it’s diarrhea. There are many factors that can cause runny poops, from parasites to switching foods to lack of stomach enzymes, and figuring out what exactly is causing diarrhea often requires a trip to the vet. Sometimes this issue clears up on its own, sometimes medication is required. The bottom line is that kittens who have diarrhea can become malnourished and dehydrated, and it’s a serious problem that needs to be addressed quickly.

In this video, you will meet five four-week old foster kittens who are experiencing runny stools, and what I’m doing to help them. Here are two other videos I have made about kitten diarrhea that go into more detail about caring for kittens (or cats) with runny stool:

  1. Why do kittens get diarrhea so often? There's many different causes, but treating it can be difficult. In this video my newest five fosters get runny poop…here's what I did to help them through it.

  2. Thank you for a helpful video again.
    Happy Easter to all of you!โ˜€๏ธ

  3. How ironic is it I was just thinking about Kitten School and was going to click on your channel to see if anything's new. I got the notification on this video 6 minutes after you posted it. I happened to be watching a Flatbush Cats video as your notification came in. I've been thinking about these cats since your first post and all the dirty water that came off one of them due to flea bites. I've never seen anything like that. These cats truly needed help. Out mischievous little boy came from a litter of four that was fund abandoned and turned in to the local shelter. Your theory about their diarrhea makes sense. Obviously you've got the problem under control. We have a common interest/knowledge of classical music. I recognized all your names and knew who Clara was even before you explained it. Thanks for the update. Happy to know this litter is doing well.

  4. Love those kittens, Caroline. You're an angel to them. Greetings as always from your friends across the water in England. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜ธ

  6. Lovely babies. I'm glad you found out what caused the diarrhea and they are now healthy.

  7. Dear Caroline,
    I guess diarrhoea is always a problem, not only with kittens but also with adult cats. After having used the anti parasite meds we tend to give them fortiflora or other bacteria here in Poland.
    Your guess was definitely right, mom's milk will always be different than the formula.

  8. These kitties certainly would have died if not found and taken to a shelter. People are saving lives.

  9. Hi Caroline, I watched the suggested video regarding helping kittens through bouts of diarrhea and remembered I had seen it before because of the Pumpkin reference, and the can of 100% Pumpkin. I had gotten a big can of it for Poor Punky who subsequently passed, God Bless Her, and because she could eat so little of it, well, I started mixing it in with my breakfast, and I kept buying more — now I mix my almonds and raisons in a mush of pumpkin. Now with my new kitten, Gloria, who's doing great (just got fixed a few weeks back and on May 1st she'll be a Big 6 Month Kitten, well, she's been cleaning my breakfast bowl, licking up any trace of the pumpkin. I don't have to wash it afterwards, considering how pretty little kittens such as she couldn't possibly have any nasty germs.
