Re: Cat has colon cancer - advice needed

He eats the recovery well. I'm not too sure how much to feed him. On the tin it says for a 5kg cat aim for a tin to a tin and 3/4. That seems like a lot to syringe feed. :/ The can contains 195g of food. Would you be able to help me calculate how much he needs? He use to weigh 5kg before he got ill.

Re: Cat has colon cancer - advice needed

He showed lots of interest in food last night and this morning. He managed to eat just under a third of a sachet of food on his own, on both occasions.

Re: Cat has colon cancer - advice needed

Sorry to hear about your cat booktigger. My cat shows an interest in food but I think he feels too weak and sick to eat, that's why I have intervened. He is better in himself and doesn't hide as much. Like Antonio says, it would die of starvation rather from the cancer. I'm taking each day at a time...

Re: Cat has colon cancer - advice needed

Hi Antonio, sorry to hear that your cat has cancer too. :( Thank you for your kind words. He does seem better in himself since helping him eat. Since the assisted feeding he's interested in going outside more. Before he use to stay indoors and hide under the bed for most of the day. Not his usual se...

Cat has colon cancer - advice needed

End of January, my 10yr old (will be 11 in April) cat was diagnosed with colon cancer. I had a feeling it may have been this when I took him to the vets. The vet just confirmed it.
