Is yogurt good for cats with diarrhea? — 21 Comments

  1. This use of pumpkin is quite interesting. This is ingenious! If my cat ever has diarrhea, I will definitely try it. My point was simply that if you keep kitty’s GI tract healthy, then it can ward off potential bad bacteria because of the strapping presence of good gut flora πŸ˜‰

      Cal, I think you have elucidated the theory behind pumpkin for cats. The big question is will the cat eat it? This must depend on individual cats.

      • Agreed Michael
        Every cat/kitten have their own personalities which covers their likin/dislikin

        LAILA don’t love RAW MEAT, she just become MAD. Sniff it and stand uo on her legs and arms on the air as she is dancing but I see she just jump on that plate and fight with RAW meat.

        So, They say, FIVE FINGERS ARE NOT EQUAL πŸ™‚

      • If you mix it in with what they like to eat, will they eat it? It’s worth a try. M, it does wonders to feed your cat better than what you would. πŸ˜‰ My Shrimptaro is resolving his vocal chords, which is MUSIC to my ears. πŸ™‚

        • and I truly believe it is because of the raw chicken and salmon. The taurine is so much available in raw chicken and salmon, than in cooked.

  2. Well my Kitty Jasmine seems to have a Love of Yoghurt its hard to get her to stop. I’ve never had a situition like that. I guess I trust what your all saying as I wouldnt really have a clue.

  3. I have bit the comments, Michael, but my thinking is this: if you give your felines, your best care that you can give, then let them lick your yogurt or kefir spoon/jar, and you both will be the happier for it!

  4. Very useful article Michael, thanks for writing, This is I really need for the cats and kitten welfare theory which I keep in my mind always for sure. πŸ™‚

    I used to feed the following recipe at home and my cats and kittens are okay after 2 days or 1.


    1. 1OZ of carrot
    2. 3 OZ of fresh chicken meat (RAW)

    Boil only the carrot so it comes in a melting/easy to chew or inhale for the cat. Mix it with raw Chicken meat. Remember to cut the chicken in very small portions so cat does not use much of her teeth and effort to chew it or inhale it.

    The same, instead of carrot, you can have (MAGICAL vege like) Pumpkin The same proportion and the same method mentioned above.

    Thank you again as your articles really helps me <3 <3 <3

  5. What I do is freeze a couple tablespoonfuls in each sandwich baggie as I don’t use the whole can at once and defrost one as needed. Works like a charm most times.

  6. I was surprised to learn that pure canned pumpkin works well to clear up diarrhea in cats and dogs. Mind you, if the cause is worms or other serious condition vet treatment is the answer.

  7. I have never seen that probiotics including yogurt have helped or improved in the slightest the condition of any cat with diarrhea. Improvement, as you rightly said is achieved by diagnosing the cause and administering the right treatment. Yogurt is a good food for kittens and young cats but it doesn’t cure anything except hunger.

    • Thanks Harvey. I trust your information a lot because you have a lot of hands on experience in a multi-cat environment. The benefits of yogurt if they exist seem to be slight perhaps more as a preventative. Jayme who commented says pumpkin works. Have you heard of that?
