Yes you are absolutely right. It is much more important that she eat than it is that she take medication, especially those. Feed her anything and everything she wants as long as it does not cause GI upset. Cat foods, cooked foods, baby foods, anything.

 

I don't know what her diagnosis or original symptoms were but if you can give me her lab results I can better help you.

 

 

Hope this helps. If so please click<accept> so that we will be here to answer other questions like yours. Thank you.
