Ask your vet about trying something like vanilla yogurt mixed with your kitty's food. Most cats like vanilla yogurt & it helps populate the digestive tract with desirable enzymes & beneficial bacteria.

Also tell your vet the difficulties you're having getting your cat to eat. There may be similar diets that your vet can try for your cat. Any vet knows that a cat can be very difficult to coax into eating when it's ill & doesn't particularly the food it's being served.
