The Dreaded Kitty POO-POO-PAW & How to Fix It!

Has your kitty ever come out of the litter box with their poo stuck to their paw or their tail? If this is happening, it's not normal and is actually a sign that their digestive system isn't working properly! 

Healthy Gut Leaves No Mess

When your cat's digestive system is working how it should, then their poo will be solid, formed, and healthy. When the poo is solid, that means it won't stick to your kitty's paw while they're digging in the litter box. 

So, if your kitty leaves will a mess attached to them, it means you should help their gut!

How to Fix Poo-Poo-Paw

To fix the dreaded poo-mess, you need to look at your cat's overall gut health and make sure you're doing all you can to help them stay healthy. The biggest factor in gut health is your cat's diet. Make the switch to a fresh, high-quality diet that's either raw or freshly cooked. Whichever method you choose, ensure the food is free of the common allergies that cats have. 

You can also add a digestive enzyme or probiotic to your cat's health routine if you feel they need some extra support in their gut. 

A healthy gut means a happy, healthy kitty AND it means no poo-poo-paw! So keep those kitties happy, healthy, and clean!
