My wife and I have fostered many litters of kittens of varying ages for our local SPCA shelter. We have ALWAYS given them kitten replacement milk and have never had any issues….until this litter.
We have four 4-week old kittens that we have been giving this milk to. The kittens have had varying degrees of reaction to the milk. Each of them have had at least 2 episodes. These episodes consist of a slow onset lethargy, then vomiting, then a catatonic state for several hours. During this state they are limp, their temperatures have dropped, and they do not blink and look past you with glassy eyes.
We have spent over $100 this past week at the vet’s office trying to get a diagnosis for this problem.
I am so lucky to have found this website. We had NO IDEA that this could have been the milk causing this issue until tonight. We even had no symptoms these last 2 days while giving the kittens this milk. This last episode that one of our male kittens had will absolutely be the LAST time that they will suffer at the hands of Hartz Kitten Replacement Milk.
