As you may remember, Banjo was diagnosed earlier this year with Megacolon. This has been a condition he has been affected by for several years, but it is a condition that is hard to diagnose and treat. He has been taking very expensive mediation for awhile (refer to the I Love My Cat Post ~ but double the one medication to $130 per month as the amount changed since I posted about it!!!). The medication and food were helping some, but not completely.
Beth, our vet, who was at a conference earlier this month, had learned about a new food that was having some very good results helping with Megacolon in cats, and thought of Banjo.
Banjo started on Gastro Intestinal Fibre Response dry cat food 18 days ago, and as of today, I am very happy to report, he has been off both of his medications and wet cat food for 12 days and has been having some very 'big' and 'regular' results with this new food. (groan... sorry... that was bad...) And, no vomiting for over 14 days either!!
She told me he was the first kitty in Swift Current to be on it. He's eating 1/2 cup a day (1/8 of a cup, 4 times a day) and seems to be much more appetite satisfied being on this food.
We are crossing our fingers and paws that we keep having good results!
Banjo and I send big hugs, kisses, and Thank You's to our vet, Beth! xxoo
