Hi! I was just curious, what do you feed your CRF cats personally? What have you had success with?

I use dry Science Diet KD and it worked well with Stanley and held his values low for two years after early diagnosis and then he had a bad final 3-4 months where everything went out of whack on the charts (anemia, CRF, Thyroid kicked in). I've kept Pookey on it for three years since I started both on it at age 14 (he's now 17) and think it helped hold off his CRF. He seems to like the dry KD well enough, I do give him some treats and mix a very small amount of a Friskies lower protein flavor he'll eat every other day he is not on the Cyproheptadine to shake it up a bit and keep him eating on his own. He doesn't have medical problems, he just isn't a heavy eater. The 1/4 Cypro tablet every other day had helped him stay locked steady on a good weight for months now.

Since you've cared for several Senior cats, what have you found works best? What combination of foods do you use? At a point, we feed them whatever they'll eat to keep them eating, but is there something you found works well after one of your babies has an early CRF diagnosis?
