Sheila, I would guess because in the wild they would be eating birds, frogs, snakes, and other small mammals, not chicken, beef, lamb, and other things that are in the diets we feed them. Different meats have different proteins and vitamins. A cat has some very delicate requirements

Hi Gloria, I'm sorry to hear Lancelot is still having problems, but glad he's made some improvement. The blood test results sound promising actually. Do you have him on Transfer Factor? Is he still eating okay? I hate pumping them full of meds, but what are you going to do? We have to try

My 19 year old frail Fu is constipated. The vet said to give him 2 ml. lactulose morning and evening. I gave him the evening dose a little while ago while I was assist feeding him as taking lactulose on an empty stomach sometimes makes him nauseous. Well, he threw up anyway and I wonder if he

I would give him 1/4 or 1/2 Pepcid a half hour before feeding him, then feed him food, and then maybe afterwards give him a little bit of Lactulose. The other thing you can give for constipation that is milder on the system, and also combats nausea, is Slippery Elm. You can buy it in capsules

If he's got a problem with veggies, or won't eat the pumpkin, you could also try psyllium to add fiber and help maintain his function. The Pepcid is a good idea, remember to use the original strength. Nina [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote: I would give him 1/4 or 1/2 Pepcid a half hour before feeding

Michelle and Nina - thanks for answering so fast. Which should I try first - the Slippery elm or the pumpkin? I have both. Poor Fu doesn't want to eat - I think it's the constipation. The vet also thinks his intestinal cancer is probably no longer in remission, but he has been eating up to the
