Hello, we have a new kitten and he has very bad gas and very stinky bowel movements at least 3 a day. Is this normal? Are we overfeeding him? Should we switch kitten food? Also is it safe to bath our kitten?

There may be a parasite or bacterial problem with the bowel. The type of food you are feeding may also play a role. At the Sanctuary we always deworm our kittens. Have your veterinarian exam the kitten and prescribe medication as needed. Bathing kittens can be tricky. Do not use insecticide shampoos and do not allow the kitten to get cold!
