And there he is.  Now I can look him in the eyes and tell him to keep eating. Beautiful boy.
Thank you! I am telling him the same thing! I am so proud of him! I just want to see him with weight on him now! ​

what a lovely coat he has!!

His eyes are nice and clear-he looks really good other than being thin-come on CAT EAT YOUR FOOD!!

At this point whatever he wants to eat let him..protein is what he needs and abit of fiber to keep that colon functioning. We have seen good success with olive oil drops in the wetfood if pumpkin doesnt work but oil should only be done once in awhile..Glad Mukkia is eating!

Does it make a difference that his stools are soft? I am still giving him probiotics. I am just trying to find something cheaper than the $17.7ish for 10 of them! That's very expensive.

no thats fine-as long as its not runny like the runs-you want it soft=we dont want him to strain to poop. I think you are doing a faboulous job!!! what about ebay? Or human probiotics? Maybe you can ask the vet?

@catwoman707  Told me about Nexabiotic probiotics from Amazon, but she told me to ask Mukkia's vet first. I keep forgetting, so I just grabbed some from the vet's office.

It is soft, the litter sticks to it, and not runny.

You can also get some Proviable probiotic from Chewy.com. I found Chewy to be half the price than that of the Specialist. I give that to Artie, daily

I found some like that on Allivet.com. it is NaturVet 2 n 1 digestive enzymes plus probiotics. soft chews 50 count for $5.49. Anyone have experience with this brand?

I'm going to encourage you to consult with your veterinarian before trying another probiotic. Vets don't carry the most expensive brand just to make money off of it.  You are holding success in your hand right now. Careful how you meddle with it. I know the stuff from the vet is expensive but if you consider in terms of what you've spent, financially and emotionally to get where you are with Mukkia it's a very small amount.

I can't get a picture of it, but he has two bald spots on both of his back legs. There are two on each, and they are behind his (knees?) I don't know what caused this. They are at the knee, and just below it.

I don't think so, because you are correct about the front left paw. It almost looks like a cat or dog that has been in in a kennel too long?
