I had a real problem with diarrohea in an otherwise perfectly healthy
kitten. I "cured" it eventually, after trying absolutely everything, with
Gastropect which is a human diarrohea remedy made up mainly of Kaolin. It
stopped the diarrohea in its tracks and (touch wood) she has been fine ever
since. It is cheap and harmless and might be worth a try.
