    Broth & soups for renal diet cats options

    Hi, I’m so sorry to hear your kitty has CKD too...if you haven’t visited it yet, the Tanya crf website & forum that FeebysOwner mentioned has been a great help to navigate this disease, the best resource I’ve found! The broth honestly isn’t for nutritionally treating CKD, it’s just something to...

    Broth & soups for renal diet cats options

    Hi, I'm so sorry to hear your kitty also has CKD... this site might be helpful, it gives a nutritional breakdown of foods: FoodData Central If I read it correctly, turkey meat has similar amount of phosphorus as chicken. I would definitely check with your vet to make sure it's safe for your kitty!

    New Identity rabbit / quail / quail & turkey

    I'm so very sorry to hear of the loss of your Tutu 💔 With the food issue, I’m finding it impossible to locate a canned food with low phosphorus, relatively low ash, sodium, carbs, AND without the ingredients of tricalcium phosphate and dicalcium phosphate. I’m wondering because the low...

    L-Theanine results?

    Thanks for sharing this--it's what I'm concerned about, giving him the supplement for 2 months then the possibility of no results.

    L-Theanine results?

    Hi, Has anyone here had positive results using L-Theanine for a cat who gets aggressive at vet exams? I’ve seen it recommended for cats with long-term behavioral problems, but outside of the vet exams, my cat doesn’t need to take calming supplements. So really am looking for something...

    Seeking to replace packet wet food with simple home-cooked recipes

    Hi, others here might have the details you need! My opinion though, I think best results are if you can consult with a board-certified veterinary nutritionist for feline home-cooked meals...so many factors to consider such as supplements to add to avoid nutritional deficiencies, and even the...

    Cat Food Recall Recalled Cat Food Updates

    10 days later and still no official recall from Darwin's, no mention on their company website either, I will never trust this company. My concern is that since it's still a FDA advisory and not "official" recall from the company despite the contamination, many people may not know about it. I...

    catnip recommendations ?

    Same here! When it's available at the Farmer's Market, the fresh catnip is my cat's favorite. After a couple of days of letting him roll around in it, I dry it out, pack it in a glass jar and freeze it, it lasts a long time. A year later and it still smells strong when taken out of the freezer...

    Bug Bombing Apartment - Where to Put Cats?

    Hi, I'm wondering if it's only one or two nights to be away, is there a pet-friendly hotel you could bring them to and work from there? Maybe they would be less stressed in a new environment if you're with them? Also want to add I think it's risky if they're exposed to the bug bomb fumes, it...

    Help finding best non prescription food for CKD cat

    Thanks for this info! Same as @Rosies Mom I was unsure about the Weruva Wx Phos Focused, at the nearby pet store they said it was meant only as a topper to a more nutritionally complete food, so I didn't buy it. Good to know that's not the case. I think Weruva should word it differently on the...

    Help finding best non prescription food for CKD cat

    I so agree with this---also wish the food companies would treat phosphorus percentage as important as protein and carb content and put in on the labels. So much time spent tracking down the information.

    Help finding best non prescription food for CKD cat

    Hi, I don’t know if this helps, but this week am trying my Stage 2 CKD cat on Stella & Chewy’s Canned Carnivore Cravings Purrfect Pate, some of their flavors are low in phosphorus. I’ve attached the nutrient profiles for the lowest phosphorus flavors I received from the company last week, they...

    Soft unformed stool and Metronidazole

    Hi, sorry to hear your boy is having this issue. I’m also interested in what others have to say about your situation. Just sharing that this has also recently happened with my 11 year old boy, with the exception of times being sick, his stool has always been well-formed. That is until I had...

    Broth & soups for renal diet cats options

    Hi, you might already know about this, but one thing I forgot to mention... am not sure if this is true of the area you live in, but where I live, fluoride is added to the tap water. Some medical studies say fluoride can cause further kidney damage. I don't know how much it takes to cause...

    S. Boulardii question

    I agree with you (and so sorry to hear about Krista). Have told them about my cat's digestive upset while on their food and suspecting agar agar. I also felt like their response was saying that I was mistaken because no one else has complained. I think it's because most people would just change...

    S. Boulardii question

    Thank you for the food rec, I'm looking into it, there doesn't seem to be a lot of detailed info online about it yet. Will see what the company says. But am ordering the S. Boulardii this week! Also that is unfortunate to hear how agar-agar affected your kitty...I actually contacted the food...

    S. Boulardii question

    Thanks for your reply! I do worry about the plant-based thickeners that get added to the foods, since cats aren't designed to digest them well... now looking back, years ago when he was on a raw diet, there was coconut oil in the ingredients, in a lesser amount than now though. At that time...

    S. Boulardii question

    Hi @tracy1213 , would you mind updating if your cat has had improved poo since being on the S boulardii? Also would you mind sharing if there is coconut-oil or agar agar in the ingredients of his food? I also asked tabbytom the same, it sounds like our cats are/were having similar quality of...

    S. Boulardii question

    Hi, I found this post while searching for info about S Boulardii...my boy doesn't have IBD or chronic diarrhea in past, but with a food change a couple months ago, his poo has changed to what you describe above, @tabbytom. It's been pasty, mushy, sometimes a little diarrhea, not as firm as it...
