So we just adopted this beauty Stella from a rescue group. I’m so angry, turns out she’s really not too healthy. The stinky diarrhea she’s been having is not so much from diet change to new food but from Giardiasis and worms. The group blames the foster mother for not telling them. Well, I was able to get my vet to put the Profender on her but I am really struggling trying to get the medicine for the Giardia into her. Turns out this cat is rather on the feral side also... she gave the vet and the assistant a really hard time. I’m supposed to give her this medication for 5 days in a row and it looks like she can smell/taste it in her food so is refusing to eat. Any suggestions? She does not seem tempted by strong smelling cat foods containing fish flavors... I tried people tuna as a treat once already and she ignored it. She keeps screaming at me because she’s hungry but won’t eat the food. I‘ve been playing with her, trying to get her tired and hungrier... but nothing. Dropped a couple treats into it thinking it might get her started, but nope.... she’s a stubborn one. Ferals I’ve dealt with before have not been this stubborn eating medicine in their food. I’m at a loss at what to try next. I’m so angry at this rescue group.
