Cat has always had a good appetite. Only problems in the past have been with hairballs getting out of control and suppressing his appetite for a while.
Lately, he stopped eating almost completely. We've tried different types of food. Wet, dry, treats, etc. We're trying anything we can to get calories in him.
We went to the vet (obviously) and had bloodwork and checkup. Nothing out of the ordinary has been diagnosed as a result. We're now trying appetite stimulant and anti-nausea medications.
He's still not eating any proper food we put in front of him, but he will lick food off our fingers. We've been giving him anti-hairball paste which he LOVES and lickable cat treats which he really likes. But they're so low in calories that it's not something that's really sustainable.
So... I guess my questions are:
- Has anyone had a situation like this? Any recommendations on getting more calories in him/getting him eating?
- Are there brands or recipes for healthy high calorie pastes out there? I know it's not a long term solution, but really anything at this point would be great.
P.S. We'll be taking him back to the vet in a couple of days if nothing changes.
