    Hi, I'm going to ask about my cdk civvie cat cos I'm comfortable here. And I know many have experience with cdk.
    Just got back from vet and my cat's kidney values did not improve from 3 months ago. Crea, bun and phos have gone up. Vet is adamant I only give renal prescriptive food from royal canin or hills. He does eat renal royal canin dry but he doesn't like the wet food. He likes his usual wet food. I argued with the vet that early stage of cdk, it's ok to give high protein food but she refused to listen. Insisted I changed his diet totally. Make me really mad cos doesn't she know how picky cats are!
    So my plan is to add binder to his normal wet food and let him graze on renal dry. And subcut fluid 100ml daily. Vet wasn't keen on subcut. But I pushed for it. And she insisted on renal supplement. And she said must do SDMA test. Is this necessary? Anythg else I should do to help him improve? I've had him since he's 2 hours old and he's turning 14 in 2 weeks time. He's precious!

    Thanks! I can't find those food here. That's my frustration. I was just so mad with the vet that I just needed to vent here. Thanks for reading my post.

    My CKD Civvie seems to oscillate between the Best Friends and the Hills KD. I feed her what she will eat and just try to keep up with her changing tastes. Every now and again she gets some of Jones Rawz food lately. Just a smidge as I can't seem to get the phosphorus levels on those.

    If they don't eat then the rest of the issues are pretty mute. That is always my last stand comment.

    Yes I agree. Well looks like he doesn't really like the royal canin pouches much. Even when I mix with his usual food. I guess no choice but to use binder.

    Where do you live? Don't need to be specific, just country or state.

    No. Shops here carry some US brands like fancy feast, avoderm, wellness but sadly not weruva.
