Hi and welcome to TCS.Hi from Sweden! So Happy to have found this page. I need alternatives (variation) if the LOVE of my life (Bubbas) doesnt eat the y/d. He loves the dry food tho. I WANT to go strictly y/d but I need options. And I am also thinking about the musclemass loss due to the low protein, the sickness itself and the age factor. This was an eyeopener and I will investigate further.
I have spent weeks googling this and everything I read is about y/d only or medication. I dont think that is an option for everybody in the long run.
My cat didn't like the y/d food either. I tried feeding it to her, she seemed to like it in the first few days, and it looked promising to me, so I bought several cans of that wet food and the dry as well. Then, all of a sudden, she disliked it.
I was already treating her with Methimazole (pills), so she was covered by the meds. Later on, I replaced the pills with the transdermal gel, but my goal, since the beginning, was the radio-iodine treatment, which I eventually managed to have several months later, and my cat was successfully treated.
From experience in my own cat, and another cat at a shelter that I was treating the same way, y/d food has few chances of success. Moreover, HT is a degenerative disease, the food only can't do much against it.
