I used to use RC extreme hairball as a treat, but worried about the chicken 
feathers, also they do have grains in some of their foods and since we are all 
allergic to grains, that leaves RC out.

You will have to do what I resorted to, put food out in the am and pm and after 
an hour, take it up.  I used to leave food in the bowls all day but Dee and 
Homey would continue to eat all day and are now over weight.  The only way to 
get them back into shape is withhold the food.  Got to do that for myself.  
Can;'t have oreos in the house because they call me to come and eat them.  They 
are my comfort food when I start feeling down.

 Thanks, Margo (and everyone who helped).  Lucky actually ate the RC s/o diet
 tonight!  And he is at least going out to the cat boxes in the garage rather
 than trying to pee in the house.  We have some anti-inflammatory to help
 with his urgency I hope.
 Hopefully we're crossing a bridge toward better health for Lucky!  I know I
 can feed him separately, the problem is, the other cats still eat the dry
 food, and I need to keep him out of it.
 Wish us well!

 Hi Bonnie,
 
 Since there was no evidence of crystals, Id just go for a high meat
 canned food (like the EVO 95% varieties), without the acidifiers. Using that
 could incline him towards oxylate stones, which are much more difficult to
 deal with.

Hi Bonnie,
 All in all, I'd say that's good news. I try to avoid dry food, but the RC SO is what I have for those times someone is stubborn or insistent on dry food. They like it :) I haven't tried the canned, for wet food I use EVO, Hounds and Gatos, and others with basically meat only. That's pretty much what I use for everyone. Canned is altogether better than dry for any cat.
 Hope all the meds make him feel much better, soon.

How old is he?  Also, is he FeLV positive?  I think older cats are more prone

Thanks!
 I feel better about my RC. It's a minor part of their diet, but I don't feed them the hypoallergenic dog food that's made from feathers .Iresearched the science behind the hydrolyzed hypo-allergenic foods when I had a dog with issues, so I understand some of that.
 I misunderstood, and thought that the contention was that their chicken meal is made of feathers.
Thanks for clearing that up :)

Hi Bonnie,

Since there was no evidence of crystals, Id just go for a high meat 
canned food (like the EVO 95% varieties), without the acidifiers. Using that 
could incline him towards oxylate stones, which are much more difficult to deal 
with.

Re: [Felvtalk] Update on Lucky

2013-09-11 Thread Bonnie Hogue
Thanks, Margo (and everyone who helped).  Lucky actually ate the RC s/o diet
tonight!  And he is at least going out to the cat boxes in the garage rather
than trying to pee in the house.  We have some anti-inflammatory to help
with his urgency I hope.
Hopefully we're crossing a bridge toward better health for Lucky!  I know I
can feed him separately, the problem is, the other cats still eat the dry
food, and I need to keep him out of it.
Wish us well!
Bonnie

Hi Bonnie,

Since there was no evidence of crystals, Id just go for a high meat
canned food (like the EVO 95% varieties), without the acidifiers. Using that
could incline him towards oxylate stones, which are much more difficult to
deal with.

I had been feeding them all EVO dry food.  I'm going to try Lucky on 
Royal Canin SO diet (canned).  My fingers are crossed he'll eat it!

no research, just an interview with the ceo and he said well it is protein.


i like the wellness turkey mostly because that is one T hey will eat.  
they also like Blue Buffalo duck and turkey.  NO ONE LIKES CHICKEN NO 
MATTER WHAT THE BRAND.  BEEF IS SO, SO AND FISH JUST SITS THERE UNTIL I
THROW IT OUT.
UNLESS I GET CANNED MACKERAL FOR HUMANS  THAT WE LOVE BECAUSE IT IS
STINKY.

I SWITCHED TO BLUE BUFFALO BECAUSE OF THE GRAIN ISSUE.  WHEN I DID 
THAT, ALL THE UP CHUCKING STOPPED, SO NOW, I LOOK FOR GRAIN FREE, MEAT 
FIRST INGREDIENTS.

  Hi,
 Could you provide a link to that? Or some other well 
 documented
source coroborating that information?  I use RC SO when I need to add 
dry, so I'd like to be informed, but that contradicts what my research has
shown.

 Wellness foods have been implicated in the formation of
stones/crystals in some cats.
