Hi! So my 10 week old kitten may possibly have diarrhea. Since yesterday, he had watery poop stuck to his fur. Since the litter clumps his poop, I can’t tell if it is REALLY watery, but I’m sure it is since there is watery poop stuck to his fur. And today morning, there was a lot of it on his legs. However, he poops twice/thrice a day. It’s
not frequent. So I am confused. Is it diarrhea? We did recently switch from dry food to wet food. Gradually. And he did get this vaccination and deworming. Please help!

You need to take him to the vet quickly. Kittens can go downhill very quickly when they have loose stools. You can try mixing pumpkin in his canned food - do not use anything other then chicken based foods of a high quality - no cheap foods, no fish based foods.

Yes this is diarrhea. It is most likely from the quick change in food. Ideally you should gradually change the food over a period of 10 days.
I would still call the vet, diarrhea this bad can easily hurt a kitten, and it can get serious quickly.

the change of diet may be responsible. can u give him wet and dry food.

If there has been a change at all in the food he's eating, this is probably why but some animals do react to vaccination & being wormed. Has he done this before (with either)? If this continues, obviously you need to have your vet examine and treat.

It's probably the change from dry to wet food, make sure your kitty has access to plenty of fresh water and if the symptoms persist take him to the vets.
