Ok, just read where Miles was diagnosed with Cholangitis/cholangiohepatitis complex, found some info on it and nutrition is part of the recovery/treatment process, what is the vet doing for him as far as that goes?????

Cholangitis/cholangiohepatitis complex:
This is a number of related inflammatory & or infectious disorders of the liver and/or the biliary tract. Cholangitis relates to infection or inflammation of the bile duct & cholangiohepatitis is inflammation of the biliary system & by extension the liver. Causes of infection may often include FIP, Pancreatitis, IBD, bacterial infection, parasitic infection (including toxoplasmosis <http://www.cat-world.com.au/Toxoplasmosis.htm>).


      Supportive care with IV or subcutaneous fluids & *nutritional


      If the cause is bacterial, antibiotics will be prescribed.


      Medication to control vomiting if necessary.


      Corticosteroids may also be helpful in cats.

Do they think it is bacterial in nature?


happiness is being owned by cats ...
