|Hi Miss Maxi,
I wanted to give you my take on it. I am an elder gal, so probably have more old furt issues than you, dear little one, but recently had a sonogram, and have had some dietary issues for the past few years, combined with in the last few years kidney programs and now, sigh, probable pancreatitis as well.
I recently had yet another sonogram done, and it showed thickening of the intestines, and even a swollen lymph node. But I digress....
A few weeks ago the vet decided that I needed my food changed. Well, bad idea. I started throwing up again. She had decided this because I was having some very stinky light colored poop.
This weekend was a bad one for me. I did get a B12,w hich helped tremendously. I can't tell you how much we benefit from B12, and you might want to have your mom ask your vet if you could have one. They make you feel quite well!
Mom fed me some babyfood...now, it was stage one, and stage one is just meat and water. Its' very mild for us. It's what some vet hospitals (the one mom used to work at did) when a kitty is ill.
I got sick on it. Mommy realized the low residue food and the baby food were chicken and turkey!
Mommy suspects I may perhaps have developed, in my furtiness, sensitivities to poultry. So...I have been having some beef baby food, and beef fancy feast with no ill results.
We have since learned the less ingredients that might spark sensitivity, the better.
some vets suggest a novel protein-that is-something that is not commonly used to feed, such as venison, or rabbit.
You've had some wonderful advice from people who know, here....
so just adding my brief experience...
purrs for feeling better,
