My family and I just got a new kitten from the humain society, and yesterday he started having diarrhea. I am feeding him Wellness Kitten Health dry food, & the shelter was giving him "whatever was donated". Tonight he had a small amount of bright red blood in his stool. He has been fixed and was dewormed. Also I took him to the vet today to get his 2nd shot. I told the vet about the diarrhea and he wasn't too worried just asked me to bring in a sample. I am very worried about him he is acting normal a little tired from the shot but that's to be expected. So is it just the food causing the blood? Anyone had anything like this happen?View Thread
