Making Oscar comfy--a call for advice
A few weeks ago I took Oscar to the vet to have her look at his left back leg. It was stiff and he seemed to have a bit of trouble with it. Her verdict was arthritis (he is 16) and she sent me home with some Tramadol for the pain and Cosequin. It has been a bit of a struggle to get him to eat the Cosequin. It is a powder that I need to sprinkle on his food and I don't know how he knows but he knows when I sprinkle it on and he turns his nose up at it.
I have also been trying to make him comfy so he doesn't make things any worse ... Is there anybody out there who has helped their senior feline be more comfy with arthritis? Even just simple ideas I could use to help my little orange guy would be appreciated. I think Oscar would appreciate it , too.
