    My problem is my cats dislike having fish oil mixed in their raw meat. It seems that they do not like the smell.
    I want to give them orally by soft gel, however, I cannot soft gel is the dose is small enough to give it to cats.

    Also, My CKD cat FaFa only like sole raw meat and is reluctant to eat the raw meat mixed with supplements according to Dr. Lisa's recipe, that involves Egg shell powder, vitamin B complex, vitamin E, fish oil and taurine. I am sure FaFa does not like fish oil, however I think other supplement may contribute to the problem too, I have not figure it out yet. In case she just do not like so many supplements mixed together, what all in one supplement should I get for FaFa? I heard TC feline is good but I am not sure it can be shipped to Hong Kong. Is this brand good? https://hk.iherb.com/pr/Life-Extension-Cat-Mix-Advanced-Multi-Nutrient-Formula-3-52-oz-100-g/67047

    Thanks for the help!

    There is no calcium in that supplement that I can see.
    If they won’t eat fish oil, try canned sardines. I feed my cats canned sardines as a fish oil supplement.

    If you are looking for a Complete supplement that can be used for CRD cats you can try this one here in Australia.
    They may post to Hong Kong. She is on Facebook And will answer you questions there.
    It’s called Australian Raw Fed Cats on fb.You can ask questions and they will help you.
    Or you can visit their website which is rawmeow.com.au and see their products. They have one specifically for CRD cats.

    What brand fish oil have you tired? I use Nordic naturals and my cats love it, they will like it by itself. I tried other brands and some liked it and others did not.

    Hi Peter was looking Monkey's SS after 6-23-20 you have no dates filled in and some of the doses you are shooting is not filled

    PenPen's SS you have not really been testing
    It's very important. I see you haven't tested PenPen since 6-2-20 since OTJ
    I think you should be testing blood glucose weekly for the first month and then monthly forever.
    Monkey is looking so good :cat:

    For FaFa, in Chinese fa means flower, fa = 花, and unlike English name like "Ben" Chinese almost always call others with name that consist of at least two sound, so fafa = 花花 = flower flower:joyful:. She has brown and grey in her white body, in Chinese fa also means "consist of lot of colors with irregular pattern", so she is called flower flower. Of course it is a girly name too.

    For PenPen, pen 班 means dots and strips, and PenPen has light grey and dark grey, so PenPen 班班:rolleyes:

    Hmm maybe there is technical error, I can see that PenPen has the record. I am testing him weekly. He is having nice number.
    Monkey is looking very good, his needed dose is dropping sharply, now i am giving him 1.5 Lantus. I find that one day I forgot to shoot, and he has BG about 8 after 3 hours of meal. I guess it means his pancreas are working to produce insulin so he needs less Lantus, do anyone agree?
