Feline Comfort Tuna 98g & Herbal Anti-Inflammatory .5oz Combo -Stop Diarrhea, Vomiting & InflammationThe last 5-6 months have been somewhat trying and sad because my little Illaria, my lynx Ragdoll who just turned 2 years old, suddenly began having bouts of intermittent watery diarrhea.  She’s always had a great appetite but could see her energy levels dropping as she was becoming more and more listless. It was heartbreaking and frustrating  not to be able to fix it immediately or understand what was causing it.  At the onset, had consulted my vet friend constantly and we tried everything from probiotics to antibiotics and anti-inflammatories.  After much trial of ruling out all the bad things, she thought that Illaria had become intolerant to her food (chicken).  I just couldn’t believe it how all of a sudden, she would become intolerant to something that had been so good for her (a  very high quality cat food that was mostly pure chicken).  But, it definitely turned out to be the case. Every time she ingests anything with chicken in it at a high level, the diarrhea got worse. My vet says that this is a very common occurrence in cats.

So, I went on a mission to find another source of food for all of them and in doing so over the last month, Grace got diarrhea from the changes even though we made them gradually. So frustrating and sad for them.  Was on the hunt for something herbal to try that would calm down their upset tummies.  Finally found hope in Vitality Science’s Feline Comfort Tuna 98g & Herbal Anti-Inflammatory .5oz Combo -Stop Diarrhea, Vomiting & Inflammation on Amazon.com.

and here is Vitality Science’s link.

This comes in a 2-part form of a liquid and a powder that you use together.  It is a “digestive aid as well as an anti-inflammatory.”

So, I read about it on their website – program includes 1 Feline Comfort and 1 Herbal Anti Inflammatory  – and thought that we should at least give it a try to see if it would help because nothing else was fixing it.  Ordered the product over the weekend from Amazon Prime and it was on the doorstep on Monday. It comes with extensive instructions and they also have a helpline number to call. Put 3 drops on Grace’s food and sprinkled the dry part on her food and mixed it in. She ate it right up and didn’t reject it like she has with some of the other meds I tried.  She is very finicky about her food.  If she thinks that anything is wrong/different, then it will sit there until I bring her something else.  The instructions say to give them one hour apart for more effectiveness, but in the midst of getting things started and not having her stressed, I gave them together and it is still extremely effective.

After just 2 days, she had solid stools, but the most amazing thing is that Gracie has her groove back!!!  YES, she does!  She is zooming around playing again with the light and vitality in her eyes just like her old self. I really don’t understand how that worked so fast and got her energy back but it surely did.   Am so thankful that I have this now for those times and honestly think I will keep both of them on a low dose for a few weeks more and then see how they do off it.

Would suggest to anyone who is having problems like this to first seek the help from your vet and make sure that there is nothing else seriously wrong going on.  Then, ask them if this is something that is OK for you to try for your kitty.  As stated above, it does have a warning not to give this to pregnant queens.  But, this has been a wonder to mend their irritated intestinal tracts and get them back to good again exceptionally fast.  Highly recommend it – we had exceptionally positive results in 2-3 days with both kitties that had GI upsets stemming from two different sources..

Lastly, did kinda cringe ($49.00 on Amazon) when I saw the price, but when it comes to my babies’ health and well-being, it wasn’t even a second thought.  It was definitely more than worth it for quickly eliminating their pain and intestinal problems.  Plus, when I think about if I had to take them in to the vet for an OV that is well over $50 not even counting the meds, and extra stress on the kitties too.  ♥♥♥.

    I’m glad you found something that’s working well for Grace and Illaria! Diarrhea is miserable for the kitty and the kitty’s person, especially when Kitty has long hair. Baby Wipes are helpful if the mess isn’t too bad and can often prevent a stressful bathing situation.

    We’ve been through the Diarrhea Blues many times over the years with different cats. Most recent solution developed during 10 days in vet clinic ICU for my 14-year-old darling was Imodium (half-tablet given once and again 48 hours later). She’s on a monthly corticosteroid shot now and doing great… appetite and energy returned. It probably wouldn’t be suitable for a young cat because of side effects but our oldest kitty who had non-specific allergies (no diarrhea involved there) was on those shots for almost 10 years until she passed away at 19 1/2.

      Hi Beth,
      So glad you found a good solution to your diarrhea blues too for your sweet kitty. It is so heartbreaking to see them going through that and not being able to fix it immediately. I love using baby wipes too because they really do a great job with a lot less stress for minor mishaps and keep a good supply on hand for those situations.

      • Beth says:

        Thanks for your reply, Teresa. Of all the cats I’ve had and loved, seems only the long-haired ones got diarrhea. Sometimes we have to add even more stress by bathing them but we try to avoid bathes if possible!

    Bath? What is this word, bath?

    From what I’ve read, licorice is a great anti-inflammatory. I’ve never used it but I’m now thinking of alternating it with Jolie’s other anti-inflammatories. I’ve cut down on these considerably since switching her to a primarily raw diet, but the inflammatory damage she had at three months still exists 19 years later. Once inflammation crosses cellular barriers into tissue, it’s there for good. Well, you can remove it partially, if you’ve got an extra $10,000 or so in your change jar. (At last count, I had $1.37.)

    It sounds like you’re doing a good job, Teresa. You’re not allowing either yourself or Illaria to become victims. If something doesn’t work, go on to something else, try, try again, ad infinitum. First, do no harm; second, unleash those creative juices.
