My 10-year-old cat was diagnosed with kidney disease a couple of months ago, I guess you'd call it mid-stage. I started with Science Diet kidney diet canned and dry foods, which she was fairly tolerant of until recently. Then she stopped eating and the vet had my try some Royal Canin. She mostly likes that, but it seems like when I get more than about halfway through those large cans she doesn't want it anymore. I'd been working through a can for the past couple of days, and this morning she vomitted after breakfast, again after a small serving around mid-day, and possibly later. I left her dishes unattended a third time, so another cat probably ate the food! I tried switching to one of the SD varieties in the evening, but she wouldn't even touch it. In desperation, I let her have an Inaba Churu (a pureed treat) that I'm sure isn't approved for her diet. I should probably call the vet if she keeps vomiting. I've seen the information from the woman called Tanya who has a site about cats with kidney disease and need to study if further, but based on that I know there are other foods I could try. Does anything come in the smaller cans? I feel like a waste a lot of food when I use the larger ones, especially if she doesn't like it from the beginning and I end up tossing the entire can.
