cat diarrhea

Diarrhea in cats is a common symptom of many diseases, and it is never normal. The causes range from harmless to deadly. Kittens, senior cats, cats with chronic disease, and pregnant cats are all at increased risk of death-related to complications from untreated diarrhea.

Stool consistency suggests the degree of severity to your veterinarian. Liquid diarrhea is concerning because it dehydrates and malnourishes an animal quickly. Soft, formed stool is generally less severe but should still be assessed by a veterinarian.

Acute means that the diarrhea just happened suddenly or doesn’t go on for a long period of time. Chronic diarrhea is characterized as lasting for two to three weeks or longer.

Diarrhea is a common health issue that can affect cats. It is characterized by loose, watery stools that occur more frequently than usual. While occasional bouts of diarrhea may not be a cause for concern, persistent or severe diarrhea can indicate an underlying health problem that requires veterinary attention.
