    spot on flea treatment irratation

    Revolution or Frontline both cause skin and hair irritation. Anyone else have this experience and found a better product or solution? Owen is an outdoor cat. We're not in a heavy flea area, but we do have 'em.

    Sudden Diarrhea

    we had the same issue a few months back. We tightened up his stools with Metronidazole for 10 days. But after a fashion it too had side effects. After some blood work we found he was B12 deficient. We gave him B12 subcutaneously for 8 weeks. We will continue once a month. Back on his cooked...

    rice for loose stools

    we have determined with blood that O is a little low on B12 for absorption. Until the subcu B12 shots fully kick in, I'm giving a little cooked white rice. Any idea how much to give? Per pound of weight or per day or ...? Don't want him to get stopped up neither.

    ravenous suddenly

    10. Feeding definitely changed while I'm back to work which is what makes me think it's behavioral. I only feed wet, so timed isn't a good idea. His blood came back neg for diabetes and thyroid. I trust my vet for 25 years.

    litter box use normal. Diabetes was ruled out. Perhaps the sudden change of routine is blowing his mind

    adding cooked skin

    normally I cook the chicken & liver (he doesn't care for raw) boneless and skinless. the bones and skin go on simmer for an hour or so to get a thick bone broth. Then I've been tossing the bones and skin. I wonder if anyone is adding cooked skin to their mixture? Using Alnutrin egg shell calcium.

    probiotics

    I'm feeding 30% home cooked with Alnutrin and 70% Wilderness. I tried raw, but it was a no sale. O has no teeth so finding the right canned took some time after coming down from Tiki. He and I liked Tiki, but since I'm making partially my own at $2/lb, that's a little better than Tiki at $6/lb...

    gave up on raw - cooked passes the Owen test

    tried raw for a few pounds. One day yes, next day no. So ... I cook around 18z de-boned CostCo chicken thighs to 150º. That leaves me with ~16z cooked meat. Move them to a plate to cool. The skin and bones go in a pot of water and I slow cook them. After about 15 mins, I clean the meat off...

    hairball prevention

    no dry for a number of years. usually 1 oz of food at a time. Wish Alnutrin made or sold yolk powder as I use their supp for the home made food O gets. We eat enough eggs here that a little inconvenience of measurement may be OK.
