Update on Jewel

As many of you probably recall, Jewel has been diagnosed with kidney disease.  We tried her on the Hill's prescription k/d, but she didn't like it.  So, we asked the vet for a new prescription for the Royal Canin LP wet food.  We got some last weekend, but....she doesn't like that, either. :(

I am going to call around to try to find out which vets around here have the Purina N/F stuff, but I've never even heard of it until some of you kindly told me about it.  If worse comes to worse, we can order it online, I'm sure, but it'd be nice to know if she likes it before we order a bunch of it.

In other news, Jewel will be staying with us over Christmas and I am very excited to see her again! I haven't seen her since I went to the vet with her and her daddy (though her daddy keeps me informed of how she's doing).  I'm sure Carmine will be very happy to see Jewel again, too!

In January, Jewel will get tested for hyperthyroidism again as she was "borderline" hyperthyroid in November.

I just worry about her.  I love her so much. <3 nbsp="nbsp" p="p">


  1. What a beautiful girl Jewel is. It will be so good for you to get to see Jewel again!

    If Jewel won't eat n/f, a low phosphorous and reasonably low protein commercial food would probably do. That's how we fed Talia for several years, since good nutrition is better than no nutrition for a picky eater.

    If Jewel has to get medication for hyperthyroid after she is retested, I had good luck with Walgreens prescription program. It's a shame they don't carry n/f, eh?

  2. Purrs to that sweetie Jewel from all of us.

  3. Purrs and love to Jewel!
