Hello, I’d be grateful for any advice or suggestions people can offer. We bought a ragdoll kitten just before Christmas who is now 15 weeks old. He was severely underweight when we bought him. The breeder mentioned he was ‘small’ but when we took him home and weighed him he was only 650g at nine weeks old. We then had issues from day one, poor appetite, bloating and chronic intermittent diarrhoea. Various trips back and forth the vet and he had been regularly dewormed using Panacur and switched to RC gastro intestinal high calorie. This didn’t help with the appetite and diarrhoea issues or bloating and he was failing to put on any weight. Stool tests came back negative, he had no temperature and his demeanour was always good. The vet suspected tritrichomonas and attempted blood tests but was unable to obtain anything as he hated the needles and would not keep calm enough (they took him to another room for this so I can’t explain any further about what happened!). The next step was probiotics and a six week course of B12 jabs. The probiotics sorted out his diarrhoea instantly and we’ve never had trouble with that since, his stools look normal and healthy. He had his third jab on Wednesday and has been steadily putting on about 120g a week since starting them so is a little over 1 kg now. His demeanour has always been good (never lethargic) but he’s been extra wild and has bundles of extra energy since starting the B12 jabs. Very happy, loving and playful kitty. The problem is that he is still bloated - worst after eating which then seems to take forever to settle down if at all. The only times we see him less bloated is first thing in the morning when he hasn’t yet eaten. His appetite is also still very small (1 and 1/3 pouches wet food and 10g free feeding of dry per day). I’m worried because it seems the only reason he is gaining weight is because of the high cal food and not that he’s actually eating enough so it feels like we’re masking the problem... The vets have thrown around the idea of wet FIP which I can understand because of the bloating but don’t really agree with - surely he would have died by now if so? I’m wondering whether it’s a food intolerance and he should be eating grain free instead? His stomach gurgles a lot in the hours after eating and if you rest your hand on it you can literally feel the air bubbles moving and there are lots of them! (I don’t believe these are parasites as he’s been regularly dewormed by the breeder and by us since day one using Panacur and stronghold). He’s quite gassy I think - although I’m not sure of the normal range for kittens. Does anyone have any similar experiences with chronic bloating and/or poor appetites in young kittens? The vets have suggested that it may take a few weeks for the B12 to fully restore and for his appetite to improve but that we should see it within the 6 week course. Has anyone else gone through this? If so, when did you observe your kittens appetite to improve?
