My Blitz (aka "Doo Doo") is over 17 years old now. He had most of his teeth removed due to Feline Odontoclastic Reabsorbtive Lesions (ok, I think that's what FORLs stands for, if I'm right, consider it showing off), hyperthyroidism, arthritis/spondylosis and early onset kidney failure, which is very early on and stable.
So... he's got to have dry food for his remaining teeth, wet food for his medicine, both of which have to be specially formulated kidney food, a pill for his thyroid, metacam and arthri-aid for the arthritis. Thing is, he hates the kidney food. He has lost 30g in the last month because of his refusal to eat much of it at a time (he actually licks the medicine off, so it's not that...).
The vets say it is more important that he eats than for him to eat the kidney food at this time. She did say that if he doesn't eat properly, he has 3-6 months left.
So we've been mixing other meats in with his food and thus far (since I joined this site) he's been doing well. She's advised boiling chicken and fish for him too.
When I originally joined, I'd just got the news and was hoping for advice. Since we are doing well, I'm hoping for advice as a Plan B in case he gives up again.
