I use Cyproheptadine, which I used to take as Periactin liquid, samples from
a doc friend, when I was a skinny teenager.  I use 1/54 daily for our 18+ yr
old CRF cat (he’s huge!).

Certain antihistamines that are given to cats are also an appetite
stimulant.  Chlorpheneramine is one.  I think it's a little yellow pill if I
remember correctly.  It's better than giving cortisone which also increases
appetite but I believe would be contraindicated for a cat who has a
malignant tumor.  You need to ask your vet about this.  It has no harmful
side effects as far as I can remember.  I gave it to a cat who had terminal
salivary gland cancer and it kept her eating right up until the end, that
and anti- nausea drugs because she had had a chemo pill every week for
several months to stop the growth of the tumor. I have since decided that
that treatment, the chemo pill was a waste of $2000.  Another cat who had a
tumor in a different location lived just about as long as Baby Face, without
getting chemo. Chemo is also very hard on other organs, causing diarrhea,
fur loss and exhaustion.



Spay and Neuter your cats and dogs and your weird relatives and nasty
neighbors too!
