We got the blood test results back, and the vet says they indicate mild to moderate liver disease. However, she says not to panic, as A) the liver regenerates, and B) Au is a tough kitty.
Au has to eat I/D biscuits for a few weeks, and she also recommended lots of roast chicken. I'm not kidding. She says that if I roast a chicken in the oven, and give him only the breast meat, his favourite, then that's low fat and ideal for kitties with a poor liver.
So I'm roasting a chicken as we speak. However, the results don't explain why Au has lost his appetite. We're giving him Vitamin B tablets every morning to spike his appetite, and we're hoping he'll pick up from here.
Will keep you posted....
PPS Anyone who knows about blood tests, Au's are posted here.
