​Meow For Treats!

My Journey with Duke the Cat

A couple of years ago, a starved, shaking, half-dead cat squirmed his way into our kitchen on a cold, sleeting November night and we didn't have the heart to through him back out. Our doggo immediately tried to give the skeletal mess one of her treats - so we know that the cat was going to stay. Because, you know, whatever the dog wants, she gets!


I had never owned a cat before, but luckily my husband knew the basics. He made a quick trip out into the night to gather supplies while I wrapped the ball of shaking wet fur up in a towel and tried to warm him up. We took a trip to the vet the next day for shots and an exam and were assured that he was perfectly fine and just needed to put some weight on. Unfortunately, things quickly seemed to be more complicated than that.  Within a week he had quit eating, was having seizures, and we truly felt that he was dying. 


To make a long story as short as possible - I knew that if he was going to live he had to start eating. I also felt very strongly that he needed the immune system support that NuVet could give him. I wish I could tell you that these two basic sounding things were easy to fix, but they weren't.  Just getting the NuVet vitamins into him was a huge challenge - one I had never faced with my dogs! But through determined trial and error I did eventually find a way to get the food and vitamins he so desperately needed into him. If you are wondering how, I finally found a brand of shredded meat cat food in gravy that I could stir the powdered supplement into that he would allow me to hand feed him. I do not want to sound melodramatic, but I truly believe that NuVet saved our cat's life. Within 24 hours (3 doses of NuVet) he could stand and walk again. With 5 doses he had an appetite back and was eating both dry food and the doctored dose of shredded wet food without my intervention. Within one week he was eating normally, grooming himself, playing with toys, and pestering the dog.  Though he has had some big health challenges since then, he has always bounced back quickly because, I believe, his immune system and digestive system are supported by high quality food and NuVet vitamins.
