Cat diapers for diarrhea

Post by oriza » Wed May 01, 2019 2:52 pm

Hi there,

My 16 year old siamese was quite constipated for a while. After an enema and some regular Lactulose administration he's...well, he's gone the opposite direction. I may have gone a bit overboard on the Lactulose because I was scared he was going to get backed up again. He's producing small amounts of diarrhea frequently, including some "leakage" around the house (I keep finding little brown spots where he's been).

He's confined to the bathroom today until his stools get better/the leakage stops (which hopefully should be soon as the lactulose wears off), but I don't want to keep him there longer than I have to. Are there any good cat diapers out there that would be helpful for diarrhea? I want to contain his leaks so he can roam the house again, but I am afraid the diaper might just mash the poop up against his butt and make him super dirty, or cause an infection...

Thanks in advance!
