Hi Bob, My friend's cat I mentioned was a shelter cat who was treated by both of our vets repeatedly and nothing worked. She was fostering and finally gave up and took him to her own vet who saw everything that had been tried and had not worked and went and did very expensive blood work and then came up with the diagnosis the B12 prednisone and hydrolyzed protein food. We were both disappointed that neither of the vet practices that the cat had been to repeatedly and previously had never even considered this condition as a possibility. If she had not adopted him he would have been euthanized even though it's a no-kill shelter Praise the Lord different leadership is at the shelter now and that is not a possibility anymore.
My Ally also got picky about food near the end and I definitely don't want to mess around with the kitty not eating and doing anything to make them even less inclined to eat. It would be more expensive but if you could get the script compounded into a transdermal to be absorbed through the skin in the ear that would make it so the meds were not in the food. I am very grateful for transdermal meds:-D.
