Fred my CRF guy was on an appetite stimulant called Mirtazapine, it
worked very well for him the other you mentioned didn't do anything for
him either and the mirtazapine is nice because you only have to give it
every 3 days. Fred started eating within 20 minutes of getting it and
in a month gained back all the weight he lost plus some, he's been off
it for months now and has been maintaining his weight.
The starting dose is 1/8 to 1/4 of a tablet every 3 days, my vet
prescribed 1.4 every 3 days but I started Fred on the lower dose and it
was enough, I figured I could always go to the higher dose if the lower
Mirtazapine is fairly new in it's use with cats but a few of the CRF
cats that don't respond to the other are doing well on this.
