Once Tanner was finished with his vet appointment the rest of his week was pretty laid back. During the snow days and time off with him, I focused on making sure he ate well. I did an appetite stimulant to see if that would encourage him to go ahead and eat the kidney diet food, but he still refused. This food is lower in phosphorus than most other foods and would help bring this number down for him.
He spent a good bit of time in the sun, soaking up the rays. Notice his freshly shaved belly again!
Back to eating...he is doing well, as long as it isn't kidney diet. I need to order some of the different kidney diets in canned variety to see if he maybe would prefer another one. He started out liking the Hills KD canned, and will still take a few licks, but will not just eat it. We waste the majority of the can.
For those of you with kidney cats, which brand did your cats prefer? Or did you just not worry about it and feed whatever they want?
Here's a quick video of Tanner playing on Sunday...he has been extremely frisky lately and he asks to play a lot. He and Oliver are doing really well about taking turns during playtime!
