Last Friday I noticed that my Maincoon male looked sick. Tigger is 8 years old and has never been sick in his life so I did't think much of it. I waited to see but early in the evening I had to leave the house. I got back home late and when I came in I saw Tigger looked even worse. At that point a freaked out! I rushed him to the emergency room, his urine had crystalized. I had never heard of this before in my life. To make a long story short, after $1500 he came home last night. The vet told me I need to keep him on a special diet, he gave me Prescription Hills Diet. The thing is that I've heard bad things about this food? My sister, who is very involved in the dog world, told me about holistic food, like Chicken Soup for the Pet Lovers Soul. A friend of hers, who's a breeder, told her that one of her cats had this problem and she never gave him Science Diet afterwards, she gave him Chicken Soup and her cat has never has this problem again. I wanted to hear if any of you has gone through this and what you fed your cat afterwards.
