I mix the Vetri DMG and the C-Caps in his food then squirt the fish oil (they're gel caps) and the Mushroom blend (it's a liquid too) in his mouth. At first he didn't like me squirting stuff in his mouth but now I think he has accepted it and it doesn't seem to bother him at all. He doesn't have any food allergies that I have been aware of. The only spot that is bad on him is spot on his nose, no where else. His lymph nodes all over his body are huge though. He actually was the neighbors outdoor only cat until he 'chose' us. He spent 10 years outsite and we live in FL so I imagine the sun hasn't helped. Plus he was a fighter with the neighborhood strays (even though neutered) so yeah...lets just say we are doing the best with what we have been given in his little orange furry package.
The skin is definitely inflamed. I really don't want to put him on steroids at this point since he's eating well and doesn't seem to be in pain (and I have had bad exp. with steroids when not life and death) so I was hoping for something topical. The only thing is that he does rub at his nose so he'd probably rub anything off that I put on there. It's just so frustrating.
