Hi, my cat loves to play in and drink the water from the taps in the bathrooms, this water is from the water softner. Is it bad for her to keep drinking it.


Also, i just read your reply to my post on the discussions page. We have now integrated him totally onto the Medi-Cal Reduced Protein diet. We were only mixing it initially for a period of about 2.5 weeks on the advice/direction of our vet. I hope it hasn't done any more damage :S.


Hi Fiona! Thanks for our response. I have brought it up to our vet and she is saying that the symptoms i have described are better than the alternative (symptoms of renal failure) and to keep him on the food (4-5 cups a day split between morning and evening feedings). We have just recently started to mix in sweet potatoes in hopes that this will make him feel more "full". I would love any more information you could provide. My email address is: Thanks so much for your reply!


Hi Krista, Sorry- have not been on the site in a few days. Will have a look. Thanks f


Hi Fiona, I have a question for you. Just got a post from a member who has a young lab (9 months old) just diagnosed with renal failure. They are concerned that the renal diet they have been placed on (Medical reduced protein) is not providing enough nutrients for him as he is still growing. He has become coprophagic on the diet. Any diet suggestions that I could pass along to them? Thanks, Krista
