Just to summarise our phone conversation:

1. Please put Miru on a bland diet (my personal choice would be Hills i/d - dry). Min 6 weeks course

2. Take her back at your local vets and ask for a gastro-intestinal work-up

- bloods: haematology, biochemestry, electrolites, FIV, FeLV, FIP;

- special intestinal bloods? Foalate, TLI, Cobalamine

- extended faecal screen: parasites, protozoars, viruses?)

- imaging: abdominal ultrasound, colonoscopy +/- biopsy.

All this can be done in the following few months if Miru is stable on bland diet (Hills i/d?). Please also ask your local vet if they'd do a Direct Claim with Pet Plan so that finances wouldn't be a concern at this stage.

If any deterioration, we should consider hospitalising her. Also, please make sure you keep her indoors as much as you can so that we avoid a pregnancy (her being underweight would impose a high risk on kittens).

Any questions, feel free to ask.

Kind regards,

Teodora B.
