- Feb 4, 2002I also agree! You must get Baboo to eat! Since he is licking the
meds from his paw, try smearing some Nutrical or the A/D on his paw
and let him lick it off. Or finger feed. Baby food is okay for short
term, though it's true it doesn't have taurine and some other supps.
My cats loved baby food ham by Gerber's or Beechnut. It's too salty
for heart patients on a continuing basis, but at this point, eating
is the priority. And I heartily second looking for another vet. I
wouldn't want someone so negative treating my cat, even if the
situation were dire.
One other food suggestion...the smellier the better. Fancy Feast
sardines in aspic is a good one. Also raw liver in little strips and
let Baboo lick up the blood. It is very nourishing.
