Anybody got any suggestions? Tuna is barely interesting, and only earns a mouthful. Mackerel, salmon treats, and chicken broth didn't even get interest. Chicken breast is currently cooking, so that's on the list.

I think we're off to the vet er in the morning... as our vet can't do an ultrasound for two weeks. It feels absurd, but oh well.

I second that suggestion--chicken or turkey baby food.

My kitties wouldn't touch baby food well or sick. Hopefully the cooked chicken worked. Some will also find some cooked ground beef tasty. I don't usually get the real pricey little bitty cans of cat food for my kitties so when my kitty was ill last year some of those were appealing to her. Hopefully the doctors have figured out what is wrong by now and she is on her way to feeling better. Once they know what is wrong there are meds that the vet can give to increase her appetite.

Thanks for the suggestions, guys. Sadly, the ultrasound revealed what was likely an unexpected intestinal lymphoma meets hairball blockage; nothing had indicated that could be the problem so the ER vet was surprised. I ended up putting her down, as her overall geriatric/low bp despite fluids/jaundice status was not so great for surgery outcomes, and it seemed like the surgery would be really invasive for not much gain as apparently the lymphomas tend be quite widepread. The surgery was waaaay out of my budget, too.

I'm sorry!. I thought about your kitty today & hoped she would be OK. Sounds like you did the right thing. Even if the surgery was free, doesn't sound like a good idea.

I am so sorry about your loss. It is a hard decision to make, as I know all too well.

I'm so sad for you! When you mentioned the problem with your kitty, I wondered if it was an intestinal lymphoma. I lost a precious kitty to the same disease a few years ago. My heart goes out to you...

    • I had not heard that. What I had heard is that folic acid supplementation can mask B12 deficiency. Feenejya suggested getting tested for H Pylori, not a bad idea. What you're going through sounds awful, I'm so sorry you're going through this. Please stay in touch, and do take care because chronic diarrhea can present some complications of its own, as you know. Try to replenish fluids and electrolytes.

    • mnburis, I'm concerned about your symptoms, especially the diarrhea being so frequent.  I experienced pellagra after prolonged diarrhea.   The symptoms are diarrhea, dermatitis, dementia and death.  Pellagra is a deficiency of niacin (B 3).  With your vitamin D and B 12 already diagnosed as low, you're very likely to be low in all the other vitamins and minerals as well.  The eight B vitamins are water soluble and need to be replenished every day.  The B vitamins all work together.  All should be supplemented if one is low.  Large doses of B 12 by itself can cause folate deficiency anemia if you're low in folate (B 9) already.  Ask your doctor about other vitamin deficiencies.  The easy ones to test for are D and B12.  Tell your doctor how severe your diarrhea is.  Ask about pellagra.  Here's some more information. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html https://www.dermnetnz.org/topics/pellagra/ I really hope this helps.  
    • thats so exciting! let me know if you need any help with finding gluten-free products or brands when you move here
    • I have had NO breath tests done. Just  blood, stool, colonoscopy and endoscopy. I'm sorry. I'm feeling so discouraged. I just know its going to be put down to IBS. And I personally feel  that IBS is a throw away diagnosis when no one wants to investigate further.
