Default Amazed at the improvements!

I'm new here...so will introduce myself and share my boy's story

I have 3 furbabies, Sam, Mikki and Jack. My Maine coon Sam was having some digestive issues and bloody stool that just wasn't resolving not matter what prescription diet we tried...so I started doing my own research and read everything I could find about raw food.

I made the switch last week, and all three of my boys took to frankenprey immediately. I plan on moving them towards full prey. It's only been a week, and I am truly amazed at the changes I have already seen. Sam no longer has any bloody stool, all three are FULL of energy and are playing with each other all the time. I didn't think it was possible for them to be more affectionate, but they are lol.
Is it normal to see such vast improvements so quickly?

Though I don't feed mine raw but believe in it. My schedule is too erratic. I plan on making the change one day when my life goes back into a norm.

It is common to see quick improvement. Good job on your research! Micki Voisard has been preaching raw for dogs for over 15 years. She does consultations for cats but is mainly addressing dogs right now. You will find many on the forum which feed raw. WELCOME!

Sounds like good news!

I've been feeding my cat a mixture of raw and canned (with very small amounts of grain-free dry) for about 3 years now (most of her life at this point) and only once have I seen her have a somewhat runny stool (and I think that was before I started feeding her the raw). Haven't had a single digestive problem yet.

She's also quite well behaved (well, usually ) and very affectionate and smart. Hard to say how much it changed her behavior because she was still an older kitten when I made the change.

Yup--both Calvin and Conrad (IBD kitties) did a 180 almost at once. It's amazing what a species-appropriate diet can do! Congrats to your guys!

Thank you! I'm just glad I found the information I needed to make the change...I was terrified of loosing my Sam (the looker in my avi!) since no other treatments made any improvements.

I plan to keep moving them towards full prey and enjoy my boys finally REALLY being themselves
