One of my vets tells of cats who drink local city water who develop this problem. My guys all drink bottled spring or distilled water because we travel and it is easier to do the bottles than to change from one city water to another (yes, there is a difference...big time).

Instead of water dishes, try a water fountain. My Homey has recurring bouts of sturvite crystals and we can't find any medical reason for it. I had 1 water fountain in the kitchen and got another for my bath since everyone comes into my bedroom at night. We like my memory foam mattress and the electric blanket. I have noticed that everyone drinks more water since the fountains. They are attracted by the sound and everyone has adifferent part of the water slide to drink from. I also added a bit of organic (cloudy) cidar vinegar. Someone in the group recommended it for the crystals. I also started Homey on cranberry paste. She does not like it, but I can put it on my finger an stick it in her mouth. So far she has not bitten me but leads a merry chase around the house when she sees me coming. Also, so far she has not had anothr bout with the crystals.

Thanks, Natalie and all who responded. I've got Manny on prescription K/D dry food, baby food meats and lots of water dishes all over the house. He's probably close to 15 years old and has had CRF for several years. He's put on some weight recently and I'm hopeful he'll be around a few more years. Lots of love from this sweet, black cat!

Here it is:

I am dealing with CRF on a continuous basis, and treatment depends on the levels of creatinine, BUN, phosphorus, etc.

I use aluminum hydroxide, Pepcid AC, sub=q fluids, special diets, and whatever the vet tells me depending on test results.

I must have missed it, but can someone give me Tanya's site about CRF? My beloved Manny cat has CRF and I want to do as much as I can for him.



Thank you all,

Tanya's CRF site is awesome. It really helped me turn my renal cat around. I can't access my list of things to feed when cats refuse to eat right now. Off the top of my head: a plain McDonald's hamburger patty, all meat baby food, boiled chicken, cheese, lunchmeat, smelly fish food...... I am just learning about Felv. My prior experience with cat issues is with diabetes and renal failure. Sending you good thoughts. Holl font>

My vet ordered Interferon and Cyproheptadine. The vet suspects leukemia is already in kitty's bone marrow. Ginger kitty refuses to eat his food but tried to eat his cat litter last night. What should I do? Euthanasia? I can't see my
darling suffer like this! Marinda
