My ten year old cat started having symptoms of IBD a year ago, right after we introduced a new cat into our home. After hundreds of dollars spent on vet bills trying to determine what the problem is to no avail we have decided to try feeding him a raw food diet from information found here http://www.catnutrition.org/recipes.php Will write back with results. With Love.
