I've had my cat for about 3 months and hadswitched her diet from dry friskas, to wet fancy feast, and finally now blue wilderness salmon formula. In order to get her to eat it, i would sometimes mix in fancy feast appetizers (which being whole meat is something I as a parent agree with).
shes been on blue wilderness for about a week and today I found her frequently going to the litterbox. Saw that nothing was coming out, i immediately went to VET who informed me that she has crystals in her bladder ,her urine PH is 9, and blood in stool caused by roundworms. In addition, he found an infection in her urinary tract.
Vet wants me to stay on the current diet. He gave her a shot to relieve the bladder crystals and another for the roundworms..i'm to return in two weeks. if the UTI was gone, but crystals in bladder are still there...then its her diet....if the infection goes away and no crystals, her diet is fine.
now here is my concern, i have done some research and found that FISH based food is horrible for cats, in that it increases the likely hood of what my girl is experiencing right now.
should i get her off this fish based food immediately? i feed her dry blue wilderness chicken formula in the day time.
thank you all for any suggestions
