    Digestive Issues From Increased Fat Consumption?

    Thank you - they did a blood test at the emergency vet, and said she doesn't have pancreatitis, but maybe the test was off or something. I'll check the symptoms and see if they match her. :) Good idea - she really does love the boiled chicken + broth! :)

    Digestive Issues From Increased Fat Consumption?

    If it's been a long time since she ate, and you gave her a lot, she may have bolted it and then thrown up because she ate so fast. Can you try feeding her more frequently, in smaller amounts?

    Digestive Issues From Increased Fat Consumption?

    I'm sorry your kitty is having that issue, poor thing! Mine only regurgitated once, after that it was straight vomit and then the emergency vet! Now, she just acts like she doesn't feel well after eating anything rich - and just for a few hours, and then she's fine again. It's puzzling!

    Digestive Issues From Increased Fat Consumption?

    When I just give her plain chicken breast with some clear broth she is fine, but if it's the super cooked-down broth made from skin and so on that's all thick, she doesn't feel good. When I cook her a chicken, I first cook the chicken in my pressure cooker and pull off the meat - then I cook the...

    Digestive Issues From Increased Fat Consumption?

    No, I'm just trying to figure out what's causing my cat's GI distress. Vet thought IBD - but in trying different foods (baseline being plain boiled chicken breast in its own water) it seems to be less about the kind of food and more about the fat content of the food. For example, plain boiled...

    Digestive Issues From Increased Fat Consumption?

    Are there any digestive issues that cause temporary (a few hours) discomfort when the cat eats a meal with more fat in it?

    IBD Question about elimination diet

    Well, I'm stumped. Nothing has changed. Still pudding-consistency splat poops, and not a lot of 'em. If I try any variety of canned food (I've tried 4 brands now) she gets lethargic and depressed for 4-6 hours and then recovers. Home-cooked turkey and beef have the same result. On the other...

    IBD or? 6yo female spayed kitty with high creatinine, normal BUN and SDMA

    Well, it's Friday now and she is still pooping little splats. Sometimes it looks a little more formed, but mostly splats. She's been on probiotics including the s. boulardii for 2 days. I'm switching her to Triumph beef-only formula thinking maybe it's the chicken. Not sure what else to try...

    Tylosin vs. Metronidazole

    It's a liquid, I give it by syringe in the corner of her mouth. It's just a little sploosh - and it's not nasty. (I haven't tasted it but she doesn't foam or try to spit it out or struggle or anything like they do when it's something awful and bitter)

    Black Cat Has No Hair On Lips. Normal?

    I have a black cat with no fur on her lips as well. She was born that way - maybe just an odd black cat thing? I've never seen it in other cats.

    Tylosin vs. Metronidazole

    I am giving Metro to my kitty right now, no side effects. In addition.... This may not be helpful, but I have Tylosin in my critter meds cupboard - for my chickens! LOL! (they're prone to respiratory issues in bad weather, and if one gets a bad case the Tylosin sets them right up) None have...

    IBD Question about elimination diet

    Nothing's resolved, lol! Vet is going with IBD, until something changes, so we're just going to treat symptoms. (HE says the single creatinine value high with others low, and her symptoms/overall situation is unlikely to be kidney failure, but we'll keep an eye on it, but for now we need to get...

    IBD Question about elimination diet

    Thank you! Yes, no symptoms I think. She had no symptoms before anyway - then a vet said she had to cold-turkey off steroids - diarrhea ensued. She’s back on steroids now (other vet gave injection today) and I’m hoping the diarrhea dries up soon. 🤞

    IBD Question about elimination diet

    How does one do a food trial on a cat who is fine as long as she's getting prednisolone? Do IBD cats usually show symptoms on steroids, or only unmedicated? I'm afraid to start giving her something new and mess up her innards more than they're already messed up, but not know about it. :dunno:

    IBD or? 6yo female spayed kitty with high creatinine, normal BUN and SDMA

    OK - update! Went to see her regular vet. A voice of common sense. He says it's most likely IBD given her range of symptoms and medication response and food response, etc and sent me home with metronidazole and gave her an injection of depo-medrol. He recommends Hills Z/D food. He also says he's...

    Missing belly fur, vomiting, and diarrhea

    1. He's adorable. :redheartpump: 2. You can get a negative fecal and still have worms - they're checking for eggs and you don't always see the eggs, and yes, different meds for different parasites so he may still have something in there. Did they check for giardia or anything more specific than...
