    Still struggling with food issues

    I went to the pet store that I know and got some things to try. I am DETERMINED to get her off FF. At least I have found she’ll do Stella & Chewy biscuits. But she doesn’t like them with water…. I got a brand Just Turkey, Just Pork, some of the Famina ND formulas. She has had that Just...

    Transitioning Cat Only Eats New Food

    Yes, I’ve seen that… the problem is it’s one of the only foods she’ll eat. I’ve never wanted her to be on FF and tried all kinds of different proteins and higher quality foods. She will not eat them. The only one she sometimes eats is duck and fish. Will not eat venison, beef, lamb, pork...

    Still struggling with food issues

    Thanks so much for the helpful hints. She is already on Proviable daily. I haven’t tried ground pork with her yet, but great idea. What is EZ complete and where can I get it? What brand of cat food have you found with quail? I’ve tried lamb, venison… she won’t eat it. Occasional luck with...

    Still struggling with food issues

    I’m having a problem with my newly adopted 4 year old. She apparently has chicken allergy so food is an issue. She’s been sort of diagnosed with IBS/IBD. Plus she is picky… usually refuses most new foods. Her proteins she seems to be able to eat are turkey, duck (sometimes) and fish. One day i...

    1.5 Year Old Maine Coon IBD Steroids

    I’m having a similar problem with my cat. Her issues are all lower bowel though, no vomiting thank God. But wondering what do you think of Stella and Chewy freeze dried raw? And I do like your idea of getting dry food gone altogether. I should do that… my cat eats both wet and dry and I have...

    1.5 Year Old Maine Coon IBD Steroids

    I sympathize and know what you mean. When we got our new cat, Stella, I knew something was wrong just from the horrid smell of her stools, even when they weren’t diarrhea. We’ve only had her for 5 months and I’m still trying to sort out her troubles. Most recently she was on a round of...

    1.5 Year Old Maine Coon IBD Steroids

    I know this thread is a little old, but I just adopted a 4 year old female that has been diagnosed with IBS/IBD. I’m on the verge of trying the steriods. I’ve only had her 5 months and she‘s been treated for worms, seems to have an allergy to chicken (which is in everything) and has the bloody...

    QUESTION OF THE DAY, WEDNESDAY, MAY 5, 2021

    I love Kefir! I use plain only (flavored has too much sugar in it) and add frozen blueberries to make a smoothie. Great thing about smoothies - you can add stuff to them easily and you won’t even taste it, like psyllium husk powder or whatever.

    What's for (your cat's) dinner??

    I’m trying to get my cat on better quality food. Something she’ll like. Plus she has lots of issues. Just adopted this 4 year old, Stella, from a rescue group in January. Unfortunately, she came to us with a bad case of worms and some horrible diarrhea with blood occasionally. So one step...

    People with rescue kitties: are you still in contact with their fosters?

    If I had a chance to talk to the foster than had my cat for over a year, I would have wanted to know what the hell was wrong with her…. My cat had been ignored… had a bad case of worms, food allergies and IBS/IBD that we are still trying to sort out. Supposedly, she was the only cat in her...

    So many questions - but how can I entertain a feral kitten?

    My experience with outside cats was also frustrating. I had one young feral we were able to tame and get to come in the house at night. After a while I decided to try to make her stay in…. Well after a couple days we couldn’t touch her anymore, she was really mad. She just had to be an...

    Help! 2 Feral cats loose in basement

    I took care of an outside feral for 17 years. I was always worried about her. Do your best to keep them in or use the catio as suggested. What a great idea that is! I currently have a cat that used to be outdoors before she ended up in a rescue group. Actually I just adopted her at 4 years...

    New cat is not healthy.

    I’d love to report an update on Stella. So when all was said and done the latest thing I tried was Proviable Forte from the vet who believes she has some IBS/IBD. It’s a pre/probiotic that comes in a capsule form. I’ve been able to open it and just stir it in her food and she accepted it with...
