Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Feline inflammatory bowel disorder (IBD), is a condition where a cat’s gastrointestinal tract (GI) becomes chronically irritated. Inflammatory cells invade the walls of the GI system, thickening and disrupting the ability to digest and absorb food. IBD can affect cats of all ages, but it is more common in older and middle-aged cats.
Raw diets for cats with IBD
Today’s society is awash in convenience foods. The more processed your cat’s food, the less nutritious it is. To compensate, flavor enhancers and appetizing colours are added to the food. We forgot to mention the preservatives. This results in a diet your cat cannot digest and doesn’t get enough nutrients. Fresh raw food made from high-quality meats will not only be good for their health, but also provide them with the probiotics that they need to heal their gut.
