Customer Question

Kidney problems in 17-year old cat. Have good vet, but the food recommended is palatable, she gobbled it at once- but the quantity is insufficient--she cries incessantly for more. My vet is very good, and has suggested 3 sachets of wet renal food, NOT 2 and a quarter, but she is still hungry, and well supplied with clean water.
