Canned Pumpkin for Cat Diarrhea
We have been very concerned lately about little Briar. He has had runny diarrhea for the past couple of weeks. He’s had all kinds of tests plus a fecal culture. We tried giving him organic yogurt to add good bacteria to his tummy as per the vet’s instructions. It didn’t work for him. In desperation, I searched the web and found this wonderful group for cats with inflammatory bowel disease. Their first recommendation was to start adding Libby’s canned pumpkin (not pie filling) to his diet. He loves it, especially if we spoon feed him. I think he really enjoys the extra attention. Anyway, he’s been eating it for three days and his poopies are nearly normal! YAY!
