Cat digestive problems with diet change
 
I just got a kitten, about 4 months old. I don't know what kind of food he was eating before, so I started him on Iams kitten food. This is obviously the kind of abrupt diet change we are warned to avoid with cats, but there's not really anything I can do about that. He has a good appetite and seems to enjoy the Iams; however, as a result of the change in diet, he is having lots of smelly gas and loose stools. About how long should it take his digestive system to adjust to the new food? Is there anything I can give him to help the process?

Thank you!

Hi Mirandajoy.


The ingredients are probably what is causing your kitty digestive upset.

Here is a real good website that explains good cat nutrition

My favourite kitten food is Wellness Kitten Canned. You can find it in quality pet food stores.
