Doesn't like script food

How do people deal with this problem when your kitty doesn't want anything to do with the low protein foods offered.  What are some alternatives if any?  We have a good vet, she is frustrated too.  

Husband and I have decided that if she doesn't want anything to do with these foods, which we have had only limited success or none with, we are going to let her enjoy the life she has left in peace and happiness.  Dr agrees.
Do you?

Hello
Many cats do NOT care for the commercially available kidney/low protein diets. Home-made diets are an excellent option and have worked very well for many of out feline patients with kidney issues.

You might refer to the Pet Kidney Health article I posted today on my blog here at MedHelp for more detailed information on cats and kidney failure therapy options.

I am glad to help further, feel free to contact our office.

Best Wishes,
Dr Carol Osborne, DVM
