|Have you tried Blue Wilderness wet? It comes in chicken, turkey and salmon, most really like it, if you get it at Petsmart or Petco, and she won't eat it, they will give you your money back, with the receipt.
Bump was one, that did not, at all, period, eat wet. So to keep him flushed out and hydrated, we gave him 1 teaspoon Gerber baby food, chicken or turkey ONLY, mixed with water, so its like a broth, twice a day. He loved his baby food.
The key to keeping them from getting constipated, per my vet, and its the same for us, is they have to have enough water/fluids in their system. Most cats won't drink enuff on their own, and they don't get enuff from dry, hence, thats why people feed wet, and why your vet suggested wet.
But Boo Boo is right, at this point, you have to get them to just eat, and you want them happy, and not stressed at meal times, which is why we stopped trying to get Bump to eat wet. All he wanted was his dry, it made him happy, we needed him to eat, and not be stressed about it.
Many, many yrs ago, my mother had a cat that lived to be 21. The last few years, all she would eat, was cottage cheese. No, not the ideal to feed a cat, but as her vet said, if thats all she would eat, and it made her happy.
