Customer Question

I have been giving our 13 year old persian cat an increased amount of Fancy Feast canned cat food. He only eats the gravy and leaves the "meat". Recently he has developed diarhea. Could this have been the cause? He has pretty much stopped eating dry cat food.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the Persian's name?
Customer: Uh....Frosty.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Frosty?
Customer: He was recently fully checked out by the vet - around $340 worth around 3 months ago and no problem found. The only change in his routine is that recently I've been giving him probably way too much canned Fancy Feast cat the point he doesn't seem to want to eat anything but the gravy in this product. (Beef feast w/gravy)

Hi, JACustomer.

Is Frosty eating the same "flavor" of food each time? (Not just beef, but the exact same flavor)

When did the symptoms of not wanting to eat begin?

Has any pate-style cat food been tried?

Any vomiting?
