i have two younger cats right now, one is slightly overweight but still very active, and my other kitty is much smaller. Ive noticed recently that their stool is really stinky and very loose. I did change their diet, but only because the food i had been using isnt being made anymore. can anyone recomend a good dry or wet food (or combo of both) that has worked for current cat owners? id love the advice.
thanks in advance!

Have you had a fecal sample done at the vets to check for parasites? If not do that. Sometime when you change food that can cause a intestinal upset. Science Diet makes good cat food. They have all kinds, one of which is for sensitive stomachs.

They need to be checked first by your veterinarian. Marta is right about bringing a stool sample along. Did you change their diet quickly? It should be changed slowly. Another food made for cats with a sensitive stomach is Royal Canin Special 33. It's an excellent product.

I work with an organization for cats so this advise im about to give you really does work. first of all, try not to ever feed your cat soft food. dry food help their stool become firm. also to get rid of diarreah, give them some canned pumpkin, you know the stuff to make pumpkin pie. you can also give them a spoon full of yogurt. i recommend the pumpkin. all of this stuff works. get back to me and let me know how it worked for your cats.
