    I have a disabled cat and he has been having a LOT of diarrhea, The vet suggested stopping food for 24hrs to which I have tried but it has not worked. Does anyone know of a tablet or suspention that could help? I have even had to buy him a special nappy from dog-nappy.co.uk as he can't go outside.

    Please any advice,

    When one of mine had it, I took her to the vet who gave her some antibiotics. She also had RC sensitive for dodgy tummies. I'm not sure which it was that cleared it up but it was gone within 48hrs. People also recommend chicken and rice.

    Poor kitty, how long has it been going on? How old is he? Might be worth asking about stool samples and blood tests if it's an ongoing problem?
