What To Do When A 6 Week Old Kitten Is Constipated?

my kitten is 6 weeks old. she has been having diarrhea for a week now and it comes out in the form of small poops that are only a little bigger than sand. i have tried giving her prune juice, which didn’t work at all. this morning i gave her some canned pumpkin, but still no change.. how long should it take to see results?

Answer: I’d try adding more fiber to her diet by mixing in one tablespoon of ground flax seed meal with two cups of food twice daily. I also recommend using Lactulose drops instead of prune juice when you add these ingredients into the mix since prunes can cause constipation issues when used alone or when consumed too often (more than once per day). Hope this helps! Best wishes!! ~Dr. Jenn
