My cat has just started having diarrhoea - very watery. Has gone 3 times last night and 4 times this morning. Should I remove her food and just give her water?

I would contact you vet. Your pet can become dehyrated very quickly, when having diarrea. Have you changed their diet? Have your moved recently? It your pet have gotten into something it shouldn't? It could be many things. I would contact your vet right away. They will proabably tell you to come right in. Vets don't mess around when a pet is having diarrea..it's a serious thing.

I have taken my cat to the Vet last week. Got some medication "Amoxicillin and Clavulanate" for an infection on her chin from blackheads. Vet said pills may cause her to have some diarrhea, but while on the pills, she didn't have any. Just finished all the pills 2 days ago - now she's got diarrhea.

Also, it may be that I gave her 3 helpings of wet can food yesterday.

I have called my vet and left a message. Waiting to hear back.

In the meantime, I have removed all her food and just giving her water.
