Chynna had her follow up today.
Her mouth is healing very well. Her gums look great.
So far as her weight goes, she hasn't gained but she's maintained her last weight from the end of March which is 4.88 kg or 10.7 pounds, so the vet is happy about that. I was sure she felt heavier. The scale was a different one and actually weighed her in at 4.78 kg, so it's entirely possible that it's weighing low. She really does feel heavier to me. My homecare lady held her today and said that she even thought that she felt heavier.
I talked about her diet and the fact that she won't eat the k/d Feline food (either consistency). They had 2 other options of foods available. One is chunks with gravy, which I know Chynna won't eat because she chews her food and tends to lick up the gravy, and leave the chunks. And then there is something called "medi cal" I think. It's a reduced protein food.
I brought one tin home with me to try.
If that doesn't work the vet said to just keep giving her what I have been because it's more important that she eat. She didn't know what "percentage" equated a low phosphorus diet, so based on things I've been told here and what I've read at links given to me, I'm going to try and keep to foods that have a phosphorus content of .7 or lower. I bought a variety of foods yesterday for her to try. She really loves the Fancy Feast sole, cod and shrimp pate flavour. So much so that she licked the plate clean!
My problem is that she doesn't much care for chicken or beef flavoured foods and tends to go more for the fishy kinds.
I asked about phosphorus binders, but Chynna's levels are no where near requiring a binder and just giving it because the food is not low phosphorus wouldn't make any difference. So that's out of the picture for now.
haha, she's sitting at the door meowing! I sat outside with her in the carrier for a while when I got home. She loved the breeze and sunshine. She's meowing to go out now! I think I created a little monster.
