My 16-1/2 year old cat, Tiger, and was just diagnosed with a large tumor the size of a grapefruit in the abdomen. The tumor is pushing his other organs in other directions. His lungs have two small tumors. He was always a healthy cat; however, you would never know he is this sick. He throws up once in a while, follows me around, and does all his normal kitty things for a senior cat. Urination and bowel movements are good and his drinking and eating are normal. Eye color is good and doesn’t seem to be in horrendous pain, but I know he is uncomfortable.
The vet said there is nothing she can do – the cancer is so far advanced.
My other cat, Jaguar, is 15 years old and he is on Zentinol for his liver. I give him fluids via IV 3 times per week. Would milk thistle be too much in addition to his Zentinol?
Thank you for your response. Shirley
I’m sorry to hear about Tiger. C-Caps and Super EPA fish oil should help keep inflammation down and support the immune system. You may also make sure he is getting a very good quality protein diet with no grains.
For Jaguar, milk thistle would definitely help his liver. Zentonil contains SAM-e and it is often combined with milk thistle for liver disease. LiverAid by PetAlive is an excellent supplement that can be given with the Zentonil without issue. Best of luck.
