Some of the mancats in the house are now wearing collars. Smokey started wearing his special collar in October...
Some of you with older cats may be experiencing this same problem...weight loss, forgetting to eat, not wanting dry food, etc...With Smokey, we simply take him to the cage several times a day to help him remember to eat. We serve high calorie canned food (AD, Authority, ProPlan, etc...). Dry food is more calorie dense, but he isn't loving on that right now, so we grind it to a powder and add it to the canned food, with some extra water. There is also a bowl a dry in the cage, so if he wants it, it is there.
In early December we used a couple of appetite stimulants on him, and they helped him to remember that he was hungry and should eat. Since going back on the anti-anxiety meds, we haven't had to use the appetite stimulants...so we are thankful.
Has anyone else tried the Calming Collar? Have you seen a difference, or felt like it was helping?
