|So, I have 4 cats, 2 are about 8 and have developed uti issues and crystals. ( we had a vet who just recommend we feed anything and we used purlina ) and 2 cats who are 2yrs and 1 yr.
I feed the younger cats separate from the older cats since i thought they were stealing her food and bc the vet put the older cats on science diet cd and I've been researching cat food and have the younger cats on grain free dry in the pm and wet in the am.
But one of the older cats still is losing a lot of weight and it seems to be getting worse since the science diet. The vet said her blood work was great, and my sister is a vet tech so she got a full exam and just about every test, and the only thing they found was the crystals and uti. At first I thought the other cats were eating her food, so we feed the younger ones in a separate room with the door closed and give her plenty of time to eat, and I watch her eat so I know she is eating. I started feeding twice a day for her, since before we just fed once a day.
Anyway, I'm thinking of trying a grain free wet food and giving it twice a day, does this sound reasonable? Any other suggestions would be appreciated. Also, I cannot feed raw bc I live with my 5 yo niece who likes to feed the cats, and I don't want the salmonila risk for her.
