recently adopted two kittens runny stool
I just adopted two kittens from an organization that first placed the kittens in temporary foster homes. The 3-month old male has had diarrhea and semi-solid stool for 6 days now. He also involuntarily drips watery fecal matter from his anus, especially when he sleeps. And he often drips as he is running to the litter box. He was dewormed completely and was tested for a bacterial infection that came back negative for all common intestinal bacteria. The vet did prescribe Metronitazole, and he has taken it for 3 days without improvement. It has been suggested that I give the cat yogurt, but I was afraid of worsening the runnyness of the stool. I also read from your answers that eliminating glutens and giving a food with the proper proteins and carbs may help. I am currently feeding the cats Purina Kitten Chow. Should I try the yogurt? What special food should I give the cat? Could this just be a reaction to changing his diet? If so, when will the problem end. I spoke with the foster parents, and the other kittens from his litter are experiencing similar problems and all bacterial tests came back negative for them, as well. HELP!
