Hi! I have a long-haired kitty with chronic diarrhea (I see it or evidence of it on her furry bottom almost every morning), and while probiotics seem to help (Proviable DC), they aren't doing the job. She seems to poop just in the morning, so it's nothing like IBD. She's very picky about food too but no vomiting or other symptoms that fit the H2O-IONX. She seems a bit high-strung, in that she'll shy away from my husband and the boys (her age) seem to do a bit of play aggression, though she'll instigate it too. I think they play too rough. Overall, she's a happy little girl (4 years old), but I';D love some help! Would you recommend the Anxietrex or the H2O-IONX? I';D try both but don't know how cooperative she'll be - I think she';D accept one, but again, difficult to give her in food. She's a healthy weight (7 lbs) for a petite cat, plays a lot, but something's up with her GI tract. No vomiting or other issues - just gets off her feed after a bout of the runs. She has none of the other symptoms listed under H2O-IONX. Just morning diarrhea/loose stools that get stuck in her fur. She's beautifully hydrated, nice breath, and even the poop smells just a little foul. She's great otherwise but a picky eater. She eats very well as long as I give her what she likes - 2 or 3 specific things at the most. She also eats well through the day; i.e., maybe not much at mealtimes but over the hour the food is left for them to finish. Was going to give your probiotics a try, but she won't do chewables. As I read the description for your Anxietrex, that doesn't fit her either.Thank you so much!

Dear Marie,

What kind of food are you giving? Do you give meals or does she snack throughout the day? Are the stools always loose? How many stools does she have per day and when do they occur after eating? Do you give her city water?

Have they checked for parasites? Do you know if they centrifuged the sample?

Best regards,
