Tube feeding provides an easy way of getting food into the digestive system, with all the benefits this brings with it. Also, a cat can still eat normally despite the presence of the tube, so it's fine to offer the cat food in a bowl at the same time as tube feeding. Once the cat's appetite has recovered and is eating freely on their own, then the tube is simply removed.
Hepatic disease is common in dogs and cats. Few cases were recognized thirty years ago. With current diagnostic procedures it is possible to identify nearly all hepatic disease early so treatment can be successful. The liver is damaged by many injuries and diseases elsewhere in the body. Thus, many different diseases need management to protect and heal the liver. Hepatic disease also develops that is unrelated to pathology outside the liver. A variety of toxins damage the liver. They include drugs, chemicals, and microbial toxins. Often drugs must be discontinued before the liver can recover. Most toxic chemicals enter orally with their primary source being food. Commercial pet foods contain chemicals that can be changed by intestinal bacteria to hepatotoxins. Pet foods also contain endotoxin, produced from bacteria, which can damage the liver. Many commercial pet foods contain little endotoxin while others contain large amounts. Endotoxin is often not injurious unless another chemical, such as a drug, is present. A synergistic action of the two cause liver damage. Commercial pet foods seldom contain substances that cause primary hepatic disease but their composition can interfere with its recovery. Pet food companies prepare no products for treating hepatic disease. They often recommend products for treating renal disease because they are low protein diets. Treatment of hepatic disease requires more, however. Feeding an owner-prepared diet is essential for managing hepatic disease. Feeding a specially prepared diet is more important than any other treatment. Very few forms of liver disease need drugs for recovery. As mentioned, most cases should be given no drugs. The liver must metabolize many drugs for excretion, a function that is often reduced by disease.

My cat is recovering from a recent dog attack. She was in severe shock and had a suspected punctured lung. She was stabilized with oxygen, fluids and pain relief, and the x-rays showed no broken bones. Incredibly, my cat has no puncture wounds (unlike me, as I rescued her from the fight and received both cat and dog punctures), and has been able to come home from the veterinary clinic.
My cat is moving around, albeit very gingerly, as her back legs are clearly very sore and she is fairly wobbly. I am able to administer pain relief from a syringe and she has taken some water, some cat milk and some Sheba gravy from a spoon.
I just would like to know what is the best thing to give her to aid her recovery & build her strength? Her coat doesn't look too great and I can clearly see that my cat has a long way to go before achieving a full recovery, but I just want to give my cat the best chance.
Many thanks & kind regards, Deb
I am so sorry to hear that your cat has gone through such a struggle, but am happy to hear that she is recovering. I would not want to interfere with any advice you have been given by your veterinarian, and I would hope that your vet has provided some advice regarding what to feed your cat, but would be happy to provide some recommendations based on my own experiences.
Royal Canin does make a food called Recovery, which is a diet designed for cats recovering from surgeries, injuries, and cancer or related treatments. Your cat may benefit from this special diet, as many sick or recovering cats are a bit pickier when eating. This diet can also help your cat gain the weight she may have lost during her hospitalization.
If your cat lost a lot of blood and was anemic, which you would need to verify with your veterinarian, she may also benefit from iron supplements to help regain her strength. Otherwise, I would suggest feeding lots of canned cat food, as she is likely to show more interest in canned than dry cat foods, and offering fresh food several times a day.
