My new kitty has wicked gas... Whoo I mean nasty??? - Page 2

Gosh me too, who would have thought something so small could produce such a smell. He is still very palyful, happy, and loving regardless of his stinky butt issues. Im definitely having another fecal in 2 weeks just to be sure!

If he has duck issues I might gradually try something like Natures varitey lamb... duck and chicken are both gas causers in animals with issues , they arent the first suspects but they are culprits

I was thinking the duck may be an issue... Ive never given any of my cats a duck formula... Did you read over the ingredients to the Duck a La Veg (Fromm) Sharky? If you do let me know what you think...

I was looking at some of the ingredients and it seems kind of rich... Heck I think it would even give me gas or the runs... I think he may need something more mild... If I get ahold of the previous owner I will ask him how long kitty has been on this food. If it has been months and he has been gassy all this time, then we definitely need a serious change... What are some mild ones to consider... I know Cal Natural is one and Nutro... Are there others. Im assuming if he cant handle this, then he wont handle the EVO!

I actually would suspect chicken to... ie poultry.... I would say try Natures varietys lamb formula...

You dont think he will get the stinkies from the lamb formula?
post #38 of 48
Not as likely ... Lamb is what I use in canines with poultry gas issues , 90% of the time gas disappers

Really, I will have to check into that!

Yeah, you gotta consider the source -- mainstream medicine for humans or cats means they train to an accepted path and push whatever the salespeople are trying to ram down our throats. Good on ya for being able to see through it -- good luck with his neuter, and I do think that with time, his digestion will improve!

Thanks this is the first time I had to go through this with one of my cats. My girl kitten was spayed when I got her and out other cat was already neutered way before I met him.
post #44 of 48
well, neuter is a much simpler op than spay and the recovery time is less as well. He'll ace it!

Sweet that gives me more confidence...

Good deal. Yes, it's pretty much "snip-snip!" and a lot of doctors don't even close the incision site because it is so small, it's thought by them that the site will quickly close on its own, which it generally does, as long as the little guy is kept indoors and clean.

Oh good lord... This sounds totally out of line but shall I expect stitches if my little guys manhood is anything but little... He testicles are quite large (lol I feel wrong for even using that word).
post #48 of 48
...well, don't -- he's probably quite proud of them but actually, it depends on the doctor whether or not he'll have sutures. The actual incision site is generally very small (don't ask me how they do that! I dunno!)
