After several weeks of me feeling sick and throwing up, and several visits to the doctor, we found out that I have some problems with my liver. Three of my liver levels are just a little bit into the high range. I\'m not jaundiced or anything, but I am also anemic. All of my other results are in the normal range.
I\'ve lost a lot of weight, too.
Mom gives me medicine every morning for my tummy and every noon she gives me Pet-Tinic to help with the anemia. Both seem to be helping.
Since I came home from the vet on Friday, Mom says I seem to be livelier and I\'m eating more - but, she has to follow me around with the food dish and keep encouraging me to eat because I\'m easily distracted and startled by the other cats in the house. She\'s working hard so I will eat.
Here\'s the problem. The doctor sent mom home with some Science Diet L/D canned food for me. This stuff is kind of gross. I ate some of it then decided I didn\'t want any more. Mom said she didn\'t blame me. I wouldn\'t even look at it when she tried to give me more tonight.
I do like things like salmon and boiled chicken, and mom wonders if it\'s OK to give me this until I start feeling better.
Mom is going to talk to the vet about other foods, but she was hoping some of the other cat moms and dads would have some ideas for her about a diet for someone like me, with liver problems.
She would really appreciate any advice, cause she loves me a lot and wants me to feel good and be a happy kitty again.
