Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
1) When was the last time that she had blood work performed? 2) Has she lost weight? 3) What food is she normally eating? 4) Have you tried any diet changes with her? If so, what and when?
Did they check her thyroid with the blood work?A small lizard is not suitable for just a day, but I doubt that it is going to harm her as far as eating it goes. I would be interested to know if a switch in kibble would be an option for her. If she needs to stay on a dry food, Royal Canin has quite a few options that will keep her from developing crystals if this had happened in the past.We become concerned about a cat not eating, but because she is catching fresh prey it sounds like she is not interested in her food choices and making other options. I would consider looking at a raw diet for her, which can be an option for cats with kidney/bladder issues, as well, because of the increased fluid in the diet which can stave off urinary problems. Has this been tried?
You can choose to make your own or you can purchase it commercial. If you want to use commercial (which is probably easiest to start) look in your area for companies like Nature's Variety, Bravo!, Primal, etc.Other options include using companies like Hare Today which ship ground food items to you and you can then supplement the food to make it complete with vitamins and mineral supplements such as Missing Link powder.Lots more info here: http://rawfed.com/myths/cats.html
