Hi - I'm new to the site--my name is Mary and I have a newly adopted male cat Rexie (unspecified age guessed at 3-5years); his front left leg is very bad with arthritis...trying to treat it with glucosamine liquid (pills not an option) but he refused to eat dry or wet food with it...I've tried multiple kinds and he just simply stops eating. My old cat, Bozo, died last year of fatty liver disease and I'm paranoid if I withold food too much from rexie he'll end up with liver problems, which is the same as he will if I go the steroid treatment. I'm getting tempted to go that route though because I cant stand to see him so sad ... the limp is now resulting in depression, lack of energy etc...he seems to have gotten very old within only a couple of weeks. Any advise would be deeply appreciated?
