Q. My cat has Parasite, I am giving him medicine but the problem the Vet told me I only have to make him eat one type of food is there any other food?

Answered By

A. Without more details I'm not sure I can help. Unless there is a medical reason why your cat needs a certain diet, he should be able to eat any food made for his age and activity level. Without knowing what the medicine is, the kind of parasite and the kind of food, I'm not sure that I can offer you the advice you need. If you could post another question, one of us will be happy to try and help you.

A. You do not mention exactly what is wrong with your cat (the type of parasite and the symptoms he is showing) or the food you were recommended so it is very difficult to give specific advice in this case. Please provide more information so one of us can help you
