Hi friends! Wow, what a week it's been so far! I had to go to the emergency vet. I am having some issues with my bladder. My labs all came back, my creatine was a bit high but my bun was good. My alkaline was 8.5, which is way too high. Mom just got off the phone with our regular vet, who wants us both to go on the canned Royal Canin SO. Our vet knows that we eat a raw diet, and our Moms don't really want that to change, but right now there doesn't seem to be an alternative.
It's the grain in the food that causes the alkaline issues. The carbs. Our raw food has two pounds of raw meat and a cup of cooked polenta. We have so many questions for our friends: Are any of you on this prescription Royal Canin SO? Have you gained weight?
Have any of you been on this diet and gotten better and then switched over to a high quality grain-free cat food? Neither of us, Busby or me, has ever had a full blockage, just irritation caused by the high alkaline in our urine.
We are open to any suggestions. In the meantime, we have both started our new diet and we like it. Plus I am on antibiotics and sub Q fluids. I am getting a LOT of attention, which is nice. I sure hope I never have to go back to that emergency vet. That place was very scary!
