Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today.Unfortunately, when it comes to liver disease there is often nothing that can be done to "fix" a pet. Milk thistle helps to protect the liver from toxins and is believed to help regenerate liver cells. Given long term this can help slow the progression of liver disease, but it will never eliminate it totally, I'm afraid. Your best bet is to keep giving her the milk thistle and you may wish to consider a switch to a liver disease specific food like Hill's LD for cats. This comes in both wet and dry forms and your vet probably sells it (also available at Petsmart). That said, if she's still eating at different places outside the usage of such a pricy food is probably not going to be recommended.Let me know if I can help further.
