Hello, I am a fur mum to an 11 month F8 and a 4 month old F4. Unfortunately our little f4 boy is poorly at the moment (diarrhea that has lasted a good few days) because of how young he is, he is with our vets staying for his second night at the hospital. They have done an x ray and are testing his stools and so far x ray showed excess gas and waiting on the stool sample results. He is on an iv and is receiving anti biotics. He is on the road to recovery as they said he's more vocal today but still has diarrhea (he's vitals remain good).fingers crossed he can come home soon, but I have two questions really. My first is would anyone recommend visiting him in hospital? I am currently away but my partner who is at home could do, although the vet advised not to as it may upset him more, which of course we don't want to do. But could it have a positive effect on him? My other question is diet related. He eats raw food (natural instinct) I wonder if we are putting him at risk of e coli having him on this diet. There is a lot of scary articles online advising pet owners not to feed there cats a raw diet. What do you all think? Thank you!
