Thank you all...Well it didn't take long for another mischief adventure - not sure which one did it. I just left the computer and walked into the kitchen...eek. The little metal cabinet where I store clean dishtowels and stash extra plastic grocery bags - was opened wide and there were bags and dishtowels all over the FLOOR. Towels will go to the laundry and I don't think the bags were chewed on. But just the thought...Right now both girls are sleeping - they look so innocent... Tongue

Sending positive thoughts for good blood work ! I think giving it just to Mitzi is safer .

She is definitely feeling better. Refusing to eat food with Ipakitine mixed in, but we solved that by putting it in a capsule and giving it to her before feeding her. Also offering kidney food few pieces at a time by hand, seems to work, she eats more that way. Fingers crossed that her bloodworm improves.

I don't know about the Ipakitine but I just wanted to say I hope Mitzie is feeling better and that the meds and subQ improve her bloodwork. (((hugs)))

After being stable for 4 years, we have seen a big spike in urea and creatinine in the blood test this week, and phosphorus is elevated as well for the first time. This has occurred after bringing her in for constipation and vomiting (her usual complaint), but it turned out one kidney was enlarged due to accumulated fluid in a cyst around the kidney, and WBC count was elevated. Her ruing was also much darker than normal and she was peeing less frequently. We were given antibiotics, and her condition improved (urine culture came back negative though), urine was back to normal colour next day after starting amoxicillin.

On repeating blood test after one week, her creatinine and urea were significantly elevated, and phosphorus was high for the first time. We are supposed to start adding Ipakitine to wet food, and since wet food is freely accessible to all cats I guess they will all be getting it but others also have access to normal freeze dried food (Leo dry food also since he is young and active and always hungry). We will also start doing the subQ fluids.

Would appreciate advice, is food with Ipakitine for all OK if they have access to other foods? Mitzie also has her dry renal, but she has been eating more wet and less dry food since her dental (she only has three teeth left).
