I started giving Senior Aid today as two of my three bucks are now starting with HLD, one of them seems to be progressing rather quickly :( On the bottle it says that it also contains “a full compliment of vitamins and minerals”, but it doesn’t say which ones. As it is fed on a daily basis does this mean that I should decrease the other vitamins? They get DR3 twice a week and Dr.S/Calcivet once a week. They are on a RR based kidney friendly mix. I don’t want to end up over doing their vitamin intake as I know some, like vitamin A, can affect the liver and other organs if given too much. Any advice would be great :D

On an additional note, and not wanting to create an extra topic post, does anyone have any suggestions for a kidney friendly wet food to help gain a little weight? My boy with the more advanced HLD is becoming quite boney and I want to give him a bit of an extra boost. I am waiting to get a good sample of urine from him so I can do a dip test to check for proteins before I start using Ipakitine but so far he is unwilling to pee anywhere other than on the litter on his toilet :roll:
