A simple holistic remedy for constipation that we like to recommend be used to flush the body of hairballs and stomach acid is canned pumpkin. Mix pumpkin with equal parts of “canned” kitten, or cat food once a week as a hairball remedy. Pumpkin may be used after adoption to rid your new pet of stomach acid from the stress of adoption day, a new environment, or a diet change.
Other reasons for diarrhea that require treatment are worms, or a bacterial infection. Your kitten has been wormed for roundworms, tapeworms and hookworms. However, veterinarians recommend a second treatment.
Purchase plain canned pumpkin (not the pie mix). To freeze for easy weekly distribution in 2-teaspoon portions: Disperse 2 teaspoons of canned pumpkin onto strips of saran wrap and twist them closed. (like wrapping candy) Place the dollops of saran wrapped pumpkin in a large baggy and store in the freezer. Each week remove one dollop of saran wrapped pumpkin, thaw and mix it with canned food for a morning and night feeding once a week.
