Nope, that's not good for sure. What happens if you pulverize the kibble and sprinkle it on top of the wet food? Or offer her small but frequent meals of kibble next to a dish of wet? Sometimes wetting a cat's appetite with a touch of dry kick-starts their hunger enough that they'll then eat more of the wet when the dry is done.

I only started giving subQs to my CKD guy regularly in the past few months. Before that, it was only when he was showing signs of constipation and my usual tricks weren't working - maybe once every few months. Now he gets around 150ml just about every day (sometimes I skip a day). But he is 20, with Stage III renal disease.
