Another potential adverse consequence of tube feeding is the increased use of restraints. Patients with severe dementia often do not understand why a tube is protruding from their abdominal wall, and they frequently attempt to pull it out. 29 Caretakers often respond by ordering restraints. One study 14 found that severely demented patients with feeding tubes were 90 percent more likely to have their hands enclosed in “mittens,” and 71 percent of these patients required additional restraints.
But that didn’t happen. The animal charities, by and large, didn’t care. The larger ones already had donations in the millions each year, and had their own established ways of raising funds. The smaller local charities were too stressed, stretched thin, and cynical to even bother talking to us. The customers were skeptical. They did not trust our business model. Nowadays there are many businesses who donate a percentage of profits to causes, but then there was only Newman’s Own food products.

Drastic slimming is another cause as the rapid weight loss equates to a rapid loss of fat cells in the skin. Environmental factors like over-exposure to the sun and pollution also harm the skin and cause premature aging. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun damages the collagen and elastin proteins, and ozone pollutants diminish the amount of Vitamin E antioxidant in the skin. In response, the body produces metalloproteinase enzymes to repair the skin damage.

So really, it can't be ruled out based on bloodwork alone. And unless your Vet added a thyroid test to his bloodwork, that hasn't been ruled out either. The extreme wt loss your cat has gone through is very bad for his liver - and may actually cause liver damage. If he appears jaundiced (yellow pads, eyes or gums) then he's in serious need of medical attention. At this point, your Vet is not going to be able to tell you much without seeing him again, running more bloodwork and doing an x-ray.

Calcitriol is the natural, biologically active form of Vitamin D. When administered to animals with renal secondary hyperparathyroidism, calcitriol causes a reduction in PTH production by the parathyroid glands. 18 Reducing PTH levels through control of dietary phosphorus intake has been shown to improve survival in cats3 with CRF. Although data demonstrating improved survival as a result of administration of calcitriol to cats with CRF is lacking, calcitriol has many direct beneficial effects in uremic animals independent of its PTH-lowering properties21, and administration of calcitriol to supplement cats in the early stages of chronic renal disease appears safe, effective, and advisable.
