Q. My 18 yr old cat has been losing weight and the vet said he has no med. Reason why. Is there away to help him gain weight?

A. There are a couple of things you can try. For one, switching gradually to a higher calorie and high protein food might do the trick and rather than leaving food out all day, offer fresh food twice daily. You can also try adding fish oil or olive oil to his current food. Lastly, adding in tuna fish or canned kitty food to appeal to his palate plus add extra calories should help.
