What should I know about a feeding tube for cats?

I think my cat will have to get a feeding tube.


Answer by  DanMan (121)

Feeding tubes for cats are like feeding tubes for humans in that they require much upkeep and are associated with a hard lifestyle for the individual with the tube. If one is the only option, the owner should know that much upkeep and maintenance is required to keep the cat healthy once the tube is inserted.

This is used in cats that are either too weak or too sick to eat and get nutrition on their own. It is a tiny tube inserted through the nose leading directly to the stomach. Measured amounts of food are given at intervals until the cat is well enough to eat.

A special food specified by your veterinarian is syringed through the tube two to four times per day. This food is formulated to meet the cat's nutritional needs.
