Hi, thanks for the update!! Hyperthyroid is easy to treat and Sassy will be back to herself in no time at all!!!
Best wishes to you.
Come back anytime!!
Just wanted to update you on 'Sassy'. She was diagnosed as hyperthyroid and is currently taking medication daily, with a follow-up appointment in 2 weeks.
Thanks, we have an appointment tomorrow at 2 p.m. and I will share the results with you. I have swtiched her to Wellness canned cat food and she enjoys it too.
Hi berta....you are very welcome!! We are a bunch of cat lovers on here and love to help everyone!
Please come on back to let us know how things went at the vet. Fingers are crossed for you and your kitty.
Thanks for your tips. We are going to the vet for follow up.
Thank you both for the information. It is very helpful. I will be heading to PETCO today.
I meant to add to the above comment................NEVER EVER give a cat with urinary problems dry food please, you will only compound that problem not to mention many others....♥
alien makes some good points.....I'd also like to add it sounds to me like she is simply hungry. ...she is getting quantity NOT quality food and perhaps lacking in the nutrition she needs especially for a senior cat.
Iams is not a good food dear, can foods are a must...but find some with NO grains and NO meat by-products, you will notice a huge difference in the quantity kitty wants and how much more satisfied she will be...
the better cat foods do cost more however I find they don't eat nearly as much when they are satisfied.
try Wellness, Core, EVO, Merrick or Tiki(avail at petco)
these are a few of the best...good luck
One thing that could be wrong is the age difference between the cats.. A senior cat requires more rest less play.. I am sure when you brought the younger ones in she went into depressed mode... Now she is probably telling you she wants peace and quite... Just my guess lol...
