Cat diarrhea is a common problem. It can signify a serious underlying problem or be an insignificant passing acute problem. This can only be discovered over time. A single bout of diarrhea in not of concern. The concern is when your cat has regular bouts of diarrhea or when it continues over time. The use of natural cat health care can cure the underlying and causative problem.

Diarrhea in cats, as in anyone, is a digestive disorder. It can occur because your cat ate something which disagreed with her. Food poisoning usually involves vomiting as well as diarrhea and, although worrying to see, can be over quickly without intervention.

The problems lie with recurring bouts or with an extended period of diarrhea. The first spin off from this is the possibility of dehydration. If you feed your cat dried food, this is an especially worrying potential problem.

Apart from vomiting, there is likely to be a loss of appetite. This is normal and natural in cases of food poisoning. The last thing your cat wants is extra food to compound the problem. Lethargy too is common in anyone with food poisoning. The body needs to rest and recuperate. There may also be a slight fever. This is normal and natural. Fevers are a healthy immune response and aid complete recovery.

Sometimes a digestive disorder can be painful. You will see your cat lying in a crouched position, or certainly not in her usual relaxed sleeping pose. She may resent you touching her, especially her abdomen.

You may see blood in the stool. Normally this is not a serious problem. Visible blood in the stool means the blood is from low down in the intestines, such as from haemorrhoids.

It is common for a cat to show increased bacteria during a time of ill health. This is not necessarily anything to do with the causative problem. Bacteria are simply opportunistic scavengers. The normal prescription of antibiotics for all ails can be detrimental to the recovery of your cat. All medication, including antibiotics, are immune suppressive. This means it makes it more difficult for your cat to recover.

Medications are also liver toxic. This means she will be more prone to get further health problems later on.

It is better to look for the real cause of the problem that is giving your cat repeated or ongoing diarrhea. One of the main causes of any digestive disorder  is food. Commercial cat food is, almost exclusively, of low quality and has a high content of chemical residue. Cats can adapt to this for some time, but eventually their health deteriorates to a point where it is no longer possible.

It is possible to cure the chronic cat diarrhea simply by a change to a quality, natural diet, that is more in line with her evolutionary history. Food is complex. We know little about it, so it is best left to nature.

      Hi….My cat recently has had some diarrhea, which I suspect is something she ate a few days ago outside. She goes outside for 30-60 minutes a couple of times a day. I am feeding her natural cat food from Trader Joes. Is it ok to give her homemade yogurt for extra probiotics? Marcia

      Yoghurt, even homemade, is not a natural cat food. But then neither is commercial cat food. So it may help or hinder. I suggest you look deeper and really go natural. Don’t rely on someone telling you it is natural, who then makes a huge profit from the sales.
