    E tube questions

    I've read numerous articles/documents that it can take weeks and weeks to turn a cat around from hepatic lipidosis. Is she receiving any kind of anti-nausea meds? If not, you might ask the vet about that aspect. And also ask about B-12 injections. It seems that at least 40% of cats with HL are...

    Ongoing Mystery Issue

    I think you guys are right about switching to wet food, but I’m curious why the vet has never mentioned it. Both prescription foods they recommended were dry (and ineffective).

    Ongoing Mystery Issue Use a pate variety, not the kind with gravy. Very important is that she has to eat. Overweight cats are more likely to get hepatic lipidosis ( fatty liver disease) if they stop, or reduce eating. Getting weight off of her is going to help, but there may be a bigger issue going on. When...
