Question by rose: Why is my 14 week old kitten having diarrhea?
We have a 14 week old kitten that we found at 2 weeks old as a feral/stray cat. We work with a rescue group, and kept her because she has seizures. For the last 2 weeks, she has had diarrhea. We had introduced hard food into her diet, and about a week into it, the diarrhea started. I waited a few days for it to clear up and it did not. So, we discontinued the hard food. The diarrhea still continued. We are now at the 2 week mark, and it is still continuing. A few days ago she started a tincture for her seizures. We started putting a bit of rice in her food to calm her stomach, but she is throwing that up. She’s still hungry, not dehydrated, and plays fine. We’re going to deworm her again tomorrow, thinking parasites could possibly be the cause. What else could be the cause of this?

Diarrhoea in a kitten is potentially fatal. I would recommend taking her to a vet pronto.
