Has your favorite feline been nauseated and not wanted to eat after being diagnosed with chronic renal disease? Join Dr. Vicki Thayer, President of the Winn Feline Foundation, as she interviews Dr. Jessica Quimby about the use of mirtazapine as a therapeutic agent to help appetite stimulation and control nausea in cats with chronic renal disease. Dr. Quimby is a veterinary clinical scientist located at the veterinary teaching hospital at Colorado State University (CSU). She was part of the research team on a Winn Feline Foundation funded project in 2008 that studied the use of mirtazapine in elderly cats with chronic renal disease who did not want to eat and were frequently nauseated. The published work from this study was very valuable to veterinary practitioners everywhere on how they could use mirtazapine best to help their cat patients.
