I have a 20 year old female cat who has been sick for the last week she has renal failure and on meds 2 x's a day.

Last week she developed diarrhea and severe vomiting I took her to the vet and her kidney and thyroid level were within limits she was administered subcutaneous fluid and received a shot of cerenia, the cerenia made her very ill however after 30+ hours she began to feel better. It's now 5 days later and she still having diarrhea and vomiting and has ceased to eat I brought her back to he Vet and they are running test for her pancreas, heart,senior blood work and a x-ray was done looking for some type of blockage none was found. She has lost 6 ounces in 5 days I'm giving her pedilite hourly not sure what else to do since she now refuses food. The Vet did give her some probiotics however she threw up most of it anyone had anything similiar last week she was doing fine for a 20 year old cat. I'm going back to the Vet tomorrow but no one seems to know what is wrong with her.

When cats are old or sick and don't feel like eating, I have found that chicken or turkey babyfood mixed with warm water (to form a soup) is a good way to get both fluids and some nutrients into them. Give this at least twice per day as long as kitty is not vomiting. You can buy cat specific probiotics at a health food store or online and mix those into the baby food soup. Good luck from Kitty's mom!
