In my opinion they should both be on all wet food. It may be lower in calories but they are better quality calories So Lucy will feel more satisfied. The carbs in the dry food will not help her lose weight. If she's fed a specific amount of good quality (high protein, low carb) canned food the weight will start to come off. Meanwhile, Leo should just get more - let him eat as much as he wants until he's a good weight. Of course, you should still pick his dish up when he's done so Lucy doesn't eat it.

One more thought, I would definitely schedule vet visits if they haven't been recently. Make sure Leo's weight doesn't have a physical cause.

There are others here with more kitten experience than I have but I would suggest at least one middle of the night feeding. I know when you're bottle feeding it has to be done every two hours day and night. At his age I would have thought he'd be able to go through the night without a feeding but if he's sick he may need extra help. Good luck!

I'm not sure why that potato starch is in there and if it would irritate their tummies. Here's a good site that talks about probiotics and dosages: http://www.ibdkitties.net/Probiotics.html

It's not prescription but I believe it's only available at the vet. Good luck - let me know how it goes.

Rather than using up the Bold and switching I would do a combo for a few days. Best to make changes slow with any stomach upset. I would still get some probiotics since they're on Metronidazole.

It can be a long, slow process but you're right, she has to eat. Have you tried Forti Flora? It's made from the same thing that they coat kibble with and I've found it's a good topper to get a cat started on canned. It helps to put something irresistible on top of the canned food. You could try bonito flakes too, if she likes fish.

Chloe's mom and I disagree on protein levels. In my opinion you should be looking for high protein/low carbs. In canned food, the fewer ingredients the better - read the labels. I know Evo and Instinct used to make good limited ingredient foods. I think you're doing the right thing getting her off the dry and this should help the urinary problems.

It could be something as simple as a flea allergy (one flea could do it) or as complicated as food allergies which are hard to diagnose and pinpoint. I wish you the best of luck - please keep us posted!

Hi K&A! Sorry this just showed up in my forums view today. I would go straight raw for a few days (as many as you can afford) and I would also get some probiotics. Get the human kind with no additives. I recommend an acidophilus and an S. Boulardii. You may want to do one thing at a time so if it works you know what it is. Let me know if you need help with brands or anything. Good luck!
