|So with all Sushi's health problems, we have another one to add, he's not eating enough. My vet recommend something which I can't recall the name of (It was bio-something made by nutra-something or other) To increase his immune system. But I've yet to be able to find out where I can get it...
Anyway, I need to know of some ways to get him to eat more, and ways to fatten him up since he is very underweight. At our old house he was a fat cat, but now he's not eating much and has lost a lot of weight. Right now we are free feeding him Natures Variety dog food (Accidently bought the dog instead of the cat, though we're getting the right bag next time) and Innova canned food though he's just not eating much other than the Greenies treats he gets once in a while.
He's still eating a bit, not at the level were we need to rush to hand feed him or anything, but he's not eating enough. The vets can't figure out what's wrong nor can we. Though the best place I've been told to start is with getting him to eat, though we've tried everything and nothing's working. Meanwhile he is slowly losing more and more weight (I think he's about 7 lbs, and he's got a large build)
What should I try to get him to eat? Should I just hand feed, even though he's still eating, just not enough? Maybe I should hand feed some extra supplements that might help him? If so, what?
(Thought I'd note, we've already gotten opinions from three vets, all three said they don't know what's wrong.)
