I have 5 rescued cats ranging from 6 mths to 17 yrs. One male 2 yrs old was a feral cat who is now domesticated but still skiddish around loud noises and strange people. The female about 6 yrs old was a dumpster cat eating anything available. When they both were brought into the house they were put on a dry prescription food. The female developed pancreatist and was getting uti's and was put on another dry prescription food which SEEMED to help (according to the vet). I started looking for more healthly eating for all 5 and read the ebook "What cats should eat" by Jean Hofve. I picked one of the top rated can foods that is raw 5 mths ago but both of the cats aren't doing any better as far as uti's. The diet is grain free. All five cats have their own feed bowls and eat at different location.
Things I've tried:
apple cidar vinegar/water dilution given by mouth
D mannose in food
CS dilution given by mouth and in water bowl
Also have several water bowls around-some have CS in them and some have 3 drops Lugols
PetAlive UTI free
Right now they are both on Pet UTI Prevention Formula from Ask Ariel but the female is starting to pass blood again (just got off antibotics)
Both seem to be fine while they are on antibotics but once stopped there is recurrance
Both cats have had extensive tests to rule out stones, etc.
I've read other posts here and will start giving distilled water and put parsely in their food. I'm also reading books on cat homeopathic remedies and will start them on those things to relieve stress & maybe uit's.
All the cats are on probotics daily. The other 3 cats are doing fine. Also have 5 litter boxes that are cleaned 3 x day.
What am I doing wrong. I can't afford this much longer and hate to think of the alternative.
