Points to check for diarrhea

  • If your child has a fever or nausea, blood or pus in diarrhea, or if movements are slow and tiresome, you should visit an emergency clinic.

At the hospital, let your doctor know

  • From when, how many times, and how much did your child poop?
  • What was the color of the stool? (Example: whitish, blackish, reddish, greenish, etc.)

    * Take the diaper from with the stool when you visit.

  • Is there anyone else in your household with diarrhea?
  • Is your child drinking fluids? How much? If not, how long has it been since drinking fluids?
  • Are there many stray cats in the neighborhood?
