Alternatives to Royal Canin SO wet cat food?
posted by Luminiferous Ether to Pets & Animals (18 answers total) 4 users marked this as a favorite
Four weeks after we got our large cat
from surgery for removing five mast cell tumors he had urinary issues, and he had grown another mast cell tumor on his face. We took him to the vet yesterday, and he's now on Royal Canin SO wet cat food, which he seems to love. Before that he had been on dry food (for 8 months) after a long period when he turned his nose up at even his favorite wet foods and would not eat them in any ratio of dry:wet food, or any other remedy.
Royal Canin SO is expensive. Removing mast cell tumors is REALLY expensive and in the past three months we've spent over $2000 treating our cat. We really don't know how we'll afford the $600+/year for Royal Canin on top of more inevitable MCT surgeries and treatments. Are there any alternatives? The internet is a cesspool of unreliable cat food testimonials and advertisements.
if you have any advice about cat MCTs that is very welcome, especially about cats that seem to grow many over short spans of time. Ours has had six in the past year.
patiently awaits your reply.
