Avatar f tn For Anorexia (not eating), use appetite stimulant medications. For Dehydration, use IV and/or Sub Q fluid therapy, For Hypothermia (dangerously decreased body heat), use incubators, heating pad, etc.
1560663 tn?1298050127 Also try and brush your cats, even if you think they have short hair and don't need it, it's not true, if you don't brush your cats they can develop hairballs that cannot be passed. In cats with megacolon or chronic constipation the last thing you need is something else to block your cat. Like you all know I have 7 cats and I manage to brush them all, even if its a little bit every few days.
Avatar f tn I have read that prednisone is a good treatment for pancreatitis in cats but I'm not sure if Wiz has this or if it is too strong a med at this point. Thanks for any help.
Avatar f tn – Mon Apr 5, 6:41 am ET PARIS (AFP) – The junk food and poor eating habits affecting humans is also killing their four-legged pals, say veterinary surgeons and experts. Allergies and obesity are reducing the life expectancy of Lassies and Mittens nourished worldwide on industrial foodstuffs, said Gerard Lippert, a Belgian acupuncturist for animals who has just completed a study on the diets of 600 dead dogs. "Pets, like humans, are victims of junk food," he told AFP.
681148 tn?1437665191 Did you know we should add digestive enzymes to our pets' diet if we're giving them manufactured foods, even if they're high quality pet foods? Or, at the very least, if the pet exhibits signs of Pancreatitis. Don't miss this: There is also an article about http://healthypets.mercola.com/sites/healthypets/archive/2009/12/16/how-should-you-treat-pet-allergies.aspx. And, the final article is http://healthypets.mercola.
Avatar f tn He had an abcess on his prostate and also pancreatitis. His blood work showed high BUN and creatinine so was also diagnosed with renal failure. After leaving the vet, the doctor put him on Royal Canin LP dry food for renal failure. He is also on Epakitin. It has been almost 2 months and we took him back to be neutered and have blood work done. His blood work showed that his BUN and creatnine had not increased anymore so the food must be doing his kidneys good.
Avatar f tn I probably should add that I am still phasing in the Hill's K/D diet and am 1/3 Hills and 2/3 homemade low fat kidney diet. He has not shown any symptoms of pancreatitis other than the PSL being in the low 700's. Do you think I should continue phasing in the Hills K/D?
Avatar m tn canned, home-made, frozen, raw, etc and NOT kibble. However, cats who are prone to gastrointestinal problems and pancreatitis, or have food allergies, IBD or have diabetes, or other diseases that require strict prescription diet cannot be switched from food to food.
Avatar n tn The increased protein and fat in cat food can sometime cause GI issues and pancreatitis in dogs. Most commercial cat food is not even ideal for cats since a lot of cat foods contain grain is a variety of form such as meal, and glutin. Cat's do not have any need in their diets for grains of any kinds.
Avatar f tn I have ruled out worms for that reason, he has none, and ive never known of anything else to cause this. His diet is the same as my other 3 cats, and they do fine.
Avatar f tn He is a very sensitive, nervous cat. His labs indicate that he does not have pancreatitis, and overall his lab work looks good. He had a full senior work up, as well as urinanalysis and the test for the pancreatitis (negative). He has been dehydrated, not eating well, nauseated and vomiting. Is the next step to do an ultrasound?
Avatar f tn If it turns out to be pancreatitis, you will want to stick with a low protein diet which isn't easy, but should help the condition. Pancreatitis isn't always easy to diagnose, but in your cat's situation, I really would consider it a possibility. You might want to just treat him like he has it and treat for it dietarily. Let me know if you would like more details. Good luck and keep us posted!
Avatar m tn Basically, it is not safe for cats to eat anything other than cat food except maybe in very small quantities as an occasional treat. The list below are some of the foods and substances that are particularly harmful to cats. You should never feed a cat any type of seeds since this are extremely hard for a cat to digest and can cause intestinal obstruction and internal bleeding. . Alcoholic beverages Can cause intoxication, coma, and death.
Avatar f tn Also, super important that he isn't dehydrated so I would at least switch kitty to wet food where there is more moisture...dry food isn't good for cats but especially older cats w health problems. Good luck! Let us know!
Avatar f tn My Meezy and I had a recheck with her Vet today after a bout with pancreatitis, so I was also looking for a NEW good diet. Unfortunately the vet seems to think she may be working on Diabetis---I swear it never ends. She has given me a wonderful list compiled by Dr. A Pierson,D VM. I think this is the list you will find on Opus' website. Anyway I have decided on 3 brands -all having 2% carbs, and fairly high in Protien. Avederm Bff Merrick You can read the values on the site of Opus.
Avatar n tn Hello, Over the last several years, we have had wonderful results clearing up chronic diarrhea in cats like yours and cats with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) using a product called Tylan. This product is not labeled for cats but works like a charm and clears loose stool up in 24-48 hours. Tylan is an inexpensive, bitter tasting yellow powder labeled for poultry. It has no adverse side effects other than if you use too much it can cause temporary constipation.
Avatar m tn For us, this was on top of $3k in vet bills already incurred in diagnosing her thyroid condition and pancreatitis that she developed in response to thyroid medication. (Most cats are fine on the medication, but our cat completely shut down and stopped eating. We're not sure which came first, the pancreatitis or bad reaction to the med, but she ended up very sick, unable to eat, and hospitalized for several days.
541150 tn?1306037443 Gastrointestinal disorders are among the most common problems encountered in cats. Most vomiting and diarrhea episodes occur suddenly and resolve quickly. The causes are usually such as eating an unfamiliar food. However, some cats may have vomiting and/or diarrhea over a period of weeks to months. Veterinarians will want to ensure that the cat is not suffering from an illness such as chronic kidney failure, pancreatitis, or hyperthyroidism which can also cause vomiting and diarrhea.
Avatar f tn There are dry formulas, which can meet this dietary need. I agree with the supposition that all dry is not the healthiest diet for cats. All of ours have eaten dry in self-feeders, but we give them each 1/4 can of wet food twice a day. It took us almost 6 months to get Teia eating wet food, had to keep presenting it, trying different flavors. Even tried people tuna, which she still does not like. Finally, she started doing more than just sniff and lick.
Avatar m tn Because of her age, she might need a different diet. I think it's time to focus on your cat's nutrition. A lot of kitties do well on prescription diets. You will have to take her to the vet to get her assessed. Make sure she doesn't have any health conditions and that it is just age related..and I'm almost certain they will want to give you foods for her sensitive stomach and age. But, I do think you need to take her in. At 13 years...a lot of kitties lose weight, and we tend to get worried.
Avatar f tn Hate to say it because steroids are VERY controversial for cats, but when one of my cats went through a mystery ailment involving loose stool and constant hunger, it was only a (very short!) run of steroids that stopped the problem. I think we gave him three doses, one a day. But never do this without strong advice to do so from the vet, and keep in mind that steroids in a cat -- well, some people wouldn't do it for any reason.
Avatar m tn That was fine for more than two years. He was healthy, full of cheek and energy and, like all cats and oldies, slept much of the day. About 2 months ago he started vomiting, sometimes several times a day, even though there'd been no change to his diet. We took him to the vet who examined him, took blood samples and announced that he could find nothing wrong with him. He was pleased about his drop in weight, but I am not, given the suddenness of the weight loss.
3227046 tn?1458317076 I spent ten days in the hospital and was treated for sepsis and pancreatitis before removing laparoscopically my gall bladder,then 8 stones in the common duct. before that I had no symptoms except extreme fatigue. I am staying with my daughter, mostly resting and seem to be without signs of further problems except for some sore cuts in my mouth from the tubes used for anesthesia for which I am using peroxide mouthwash.
428506 tn?1296560999 lol I don't know for sure if Royal Canin has a prescription diet for thyroid (they have a lot of prescription only foods) but at least ask your vet. Both my cats and dog prefer it over any Science Diet formulas. Hope this helps and good luck to you and you little one.
Avatar f tn //www.medhelp.org/posts/Cats/Need-help-for-poor-appetite-cat/show/1789524 that would help me greatly. Here is additional information since the original post: I visited the vet again today (without kitty) and we are trying her on an aggressive anti-nausea and anti-upset stomach regimen for a few days (pills and injections, if we can manage it) to see if this will get her to eat again.
7052683 tn?1392942395 always chime in with my 2 cents worth (which is what it was worth) about how wonderful WERUVA cat food is. Well no wonder it is so loaded with carbs of course cats will love it.' So I Now want to suggest use WERUVA ONLY when you need to put weight on your cat or they are not eating. A steady diet of this will case bouts of pancreatitis and high glucose, and possibly diabetes. This is what it did for my Meez.
541150 tn?1306037443 Thing is, according to them, Pancreatitis and FLD are common in IBD cats. But as to what really causes a cat to suffer from these symptoms is still unknown to EVERYONE. I was reading, and they highly recommend a diet that's low in fat. Raw foods are recommended, but as you know not all vets are willing to accept the fact that raw foods can save a cat's life. I don't really know what happened here. We moved to our new home and that's when he stopped eating.
931217 tn?1283484935 Most coyotes and wolves, for example, are gone by 7 or 8 years old. Pet dogs and cats, however, are now living into their teens quite commonly. Diet is not the only reason for this, but it does not follow that eating raw meat is a positive factor. Most pet animals are not eating raw diets now and live long anyway. Their safer, indoor lives while eating consistent professionally designed commercial diets are one likely reason. That, and better health care than in decades past is another.

Avatar m tn Have you ever tried a straight raw meat/ fish diet? Actual fish and meat? Cat food may be designed for cats, but they are in the end, predators. I've found most stomach issues clear up when you give kitty a natural diet of the above, mixed with boiled plain white rice. most predators are actually omnivorous. however, they get their neccessary greens via their prey's diet. Keep in mind to be really effective, you'd have to go for the more organic cuts. No unnatural antibiotics or steroids in it.
