He had a stool sample this fall. He is almost completely an indoor cat. He goes out on the harness and stays on the balcony. I know he can still get worms, but if it was tape worm I would know. He had a tape worm as a kitten and I know what happens with those.
I should at he is not under weight, he is actually probably about right, I was just supprised to see that his weight didn't go up. I guess the other problem could be that he went from living on F.F. to only getting F.F. once a day. I have always fed him a high quality diet, but when he got sick that was all he would eat. His last blood test showed high cholestorol so I'm trying to get him off the F.F. totaly, but it's been a process. Around Thanksgiving all he would eat was chicken baby food. At the time his vet said let him eat what he will eat, but try to get him to eat something better. Right now he gets a 3 oz can of F.F medolies for breakfast, then a vitamin. For dinner he gets a 3oz pouch of Nutro Max cat, and another vitamin. Sometimes I can even get him to eat 3oz of Natural Balance Venison & green pea wet food. He's been waking me up between midnight - 1 AM and eating some Nutro Natural Choice Weight Management dry. I give him 1/8 a cup and then go back to bed so I don't know how much he's actually eating. His meds are as follows; Metecopromide (SP?) 1/2 hour before each meal (I could also give it to him a 3rd time, but he doesn't seem to need it), 5 mg of Pred 1 x a day, 500 - 1000 mg of L-Lysine a day and enulose as needed up to 3 mg 3x a day (although at this point he doesn't need it more than once a week.) So he is my special boy and I tell him that. I guess I shouldn't worry as much as I do, but he's my cuddle bug.
