I don't feed raw but I've read about cats with IBD responding to raw.
My vet doesn't reccomend raw because of possible infection with
bacteria and parasites. Now here on my favorite layman-readable science
site is an article about research involving intentionally infecting
humans with whipworms to treat human IBD! Co--inky-dink, or not? Am I a
geek to find this interesting?
