    My Bella is poorly. She has loose bowels and her bottom is so swollen and sore. She keeps leaking poop everywhere (not nice - on my new carpets).

    Shes fine in herself, eating and drinking etc.

    Saw the vet this morning who said she just has a virus, I have to clean her bottom often and apply Sudocreme. She also gave me Kaogel (I think thats how you spell it) for her to have twice a day for 5 days to stop the loose bowels.

    She was meant to be having her jabs on Monday but the vet has said to postpone them for at least a week until shes 100%

    Perhaps give her some bland food to eat until she is better - cooked white fish or chicken with/without a little boiled rice.

    Sudacrem works fairly quickly so she should be feeling a bit better soon.

    Don't worry if she doesn't eat much as long as she drinks plenty of water.

    Yes when my kitten was suffering from 'loose bowels' we were advised to feed her on boiled chicken, and were also given Kaegol (sp) but she ended up constipated! Shes ok now although she does suffer from terrible wind. So yes, I would also advise boiled chicken :)

    Im often wary of using things to stop loose stools, its obviously loose for a reason and that reason needs to be out of their system

    Well... I have her in isolation as she got worse. She wouldnt let me anywhere near her bum to clean it and apply sudocreme.

    He bottom was so swollen and had started to bleed :( She wouldnt stop crying and wouldnt sit on her bum and couldnt clean herself. Poor girl was caked in poo where she was unable to clean :(

    Obviously, I took her straight back to the vets who gave her a painkiller and antiflammarty and anti biotics. They also bathed her (took 3 of them!!).

    Shes still in isolation now but she appears to be getting better :D

    Bella has come out of isolation today :D

    She wont leave me alone and wants LOTS of cuddles :D

    She seems a LOT brighter now. Today is the last day of the Kaogel and she has 2 more days left of anti biotics.

    Cost a lot of money but shes sooooo worth it :D
