My 13 year old cat Annie has been on Prescription ZD food for about 2 years and it has helped a lot. But she has been losing weight, now weighing 5.2 lbs. She has been pooping outside the box for some time now and we've just learned to live with it. About a month ago she started peeing outside the box as well. Sometimes she gets in the box, mostly not. Took her to the vet twice. Her blood work is good and her urine is diluted a bit and the vet said she may be in early kidney disease and she has some arthritis in her rear end. I am going to start her on Arthro-IonX (I have another older cat who has been on it for years and done very well) but I was wondering if you had any suggestions. We tried carefully switching her to NF Kidney diet and all it did was give her diarrhea - not fun when she's pooping all over the place. She is also a bit dehydrated. I don't want to put her on standard meds like segeliline and aspirin. Nor do I want to reach the point where we can no longer tolerate the peeing and pooping all over place. I don't think she is going senile because all her other behaviors are normal. Any help you can give me will be very much appreciated.
