hi,
i have two furbabies that may have eaten a half-pouch of a recalled food in november or december.

do i have need for concern if there are no symptoms?  i don't think he's taking in excessive water, but can't be sure.  think i'll have a urinalysis done for my peace of mind, but wonder if i can avoid the trip for Chai's sake, i would rather.

thanks!

If you possibly can, I would have a urine and blood test done. It just may catch something you weren't aware of and will give you peace of mind.

Barb,

If you're worried, collect some of their urine fresh and run it in to the vet - tell them that they ate some recalled food (no need to mention how long ago) and that you're just playing it safe.

thanks...yes, i've got to do that.  i fear what may be discovered, but even though he looks and is being his "normal" cat-self, i have to be sure - if there were no recalls happening, there's no way i'd suspect anything wrong with him except a few stray fleas and the little allergy bumps he gets from them [now clearing with shea butter/herb formula spray].

are the discussions about shaking legs actually not twitching of the cat [which is a near end signal for the life moving on from this plane with CRF]

see: http://www.felinecrf.org/the_final_hours.htm

i post that where more folks can see it...

In reference to the twitching legs, please refer to the felinecrf.org website for which I have included a link.  This link goes directly to the symptoms/treatments reference (Helen, who is the owner of that site, sent me this directly after reading the discussion).
