Age Is in the Mind

What, another medicine?!?!

Mom took a pee sample into the vet Monday (from me, not her, of course), and the vet called back today to say that it was more dilute than last time, which suggests my CRF is progressing (although the creatinine and BUN are holding steady, hooray!).

The vet suggested a supplement called Renavast. Has anyone ever tried it? From what Mom reads on the Internet, it's not super expensive and contains nothing dangerous, but people are divided on how much good it does.

Pretty soon there won't be room in my tummy for food, what with all the medicine I take. No, wait. What am I talking about? There will ALWAYS be room for food!

Oh no I am sad to hear that your CRF is progressing, that is Moms fear as I go in this month for my big bloodwork...

Moms has heard of Renavast, she isn't sure about it...the special pet store she goes to has it but Mom just doesn't know about trying it, she needs to talk to my Vet first...

I am purring for you Jasper!!! I sure know what you mean about not having room in my tummy for food..

Did the vet suggest fluids? Cats really benefit from fluids and most will feel better. My vet (as well as my daughter's friend who is in vet school) think it is plain quackery.

Thanks, Jasmin. Mom has given fluids to cats before, and she will do so for me as soon as the vet thinks it's needed. But so far he says I'm holding my own on staying hydrated. But after two months of the Renavast, Mom agrees with your vet that it's pretty useless.
