cat: smelly food and hell only take a couple of bites.

Customer Question

How can I coax my sick cat to eat? I have smelly food and he'll only take a couple of bites. Any other tips? He has an Upper respiratory infection that he is fighting. I have appetite stimulants for him too but he's not very responsive.

I'm sorry your Melvin is not feeling well!

Has he been seen by the vet for his URI? If so, was he prescribed any medication(s)?

Have you given him the appetite stimulants?

Is his nose very stuffy?

Is he able to drink water?

Thanks for any further details which will help me to give you a complete answer!
